Madrid not feeling like favourites in final - Zidane

Having become the first side to successfully defend the trophy since the inception of the Champions League last season, Real Madrid is bidding to become the first team to win the tournament three times in a row since Bayern Munich achieved the feat between 1974 and 1976.

11 - Real Madrid have the same starting XI as in the 2016-17 Champions League final; the first time that a team has started with the same 11 players in different European Cup/Champions League finals (excl. replays).

Liverpool: Loris Karius (goal-keeper), Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virjil van Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Andrew Robertson, James Milner, Jordan Henderson (captain), Georginio Wijnaldum, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah.

Zidane's team selection against Villarreal last weekend - coupled with the Welshman's recent run of four goals in three games - appears to suggest that Bale is the favourite to start.

Real Madrid play Liverpool at Kiev's Olympic Stadium in the final of the 2017/18 edition of the UEFA Champions League.

Curiously, Liverpool and Real Madrid have already met once in a European Cup final, with the Reds winning 1-0 thanks to a late goal from Alan Kennedy in 1981.

"People can say many things, but we know it is not like that", the former France great said.

Meanwhile, Fubo Premier, DirectTV Now and Sling Blue will only be streaming the game live. "The fact we can make history is a unique privilege", Ramos said.

"I've had an wonderful season in the Champions League", said Ronaldo, who has scored a record 120 goals in the competition overall. This club has in its DNA that we can really go for the big things.

While I remain on Lionel Messi's side in the debate over which of these two great players are the best of this generation, Ronaldo's achievements at United and Real Madrid are just incredible and any time you feel like he is on the wane, he comes up with a performance to remind you how great he is. Pluto is more powerful than Uranus and expect the mighty Madrid to be stunned and outclassed by the younger and intense Liverpool.
