Liverpool and Real Madrid Team news ahead of UCL clash
The Reds will require little added motivation when they take on Madrid, though, with the scars of the 2018 final still fresh for many players - none more so than Mohamed Salah, who was forced off with an injury before Gareth Bale scored a spectacular bicycle kick in Madrid’s 3-1 victory.
Madrid will be relying on Karim Benzema to recreate those heroics in Paris after a stunning season. Carlo Ancelotti’s side have already produced barely imaginable comebacks against PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City en route to the final and have pretty much been able to channel all their focus on this fixture since wrapping up the La Liga title almost a month ago.
Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Joe Gomez. Divock Origi has been ruled out.
Real Madrid are expected to have David Alaba back from injury, with Carlo Ancelotti claiming to have a full squad available.
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Salah, Mane, Diaz
Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius.
