Liverpool and Real Madrid are two sides that are steeped in history when it comes to the European Cup and Champions League, with Jurgen Klopp’s side aiming for their seventh European crown, whilst Real are looking for their 14th title in this competition.
However, heading into this match, Liverpool are casting their eyes back to the 2018 Champions League Final when they were beaten 3-1 by Real, with many suggesting that this is a chance for revenge.
Ironically since then, the Anfield club have won the Champions League, doing so just one year later against Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid, but, now find themselves looking to achieve the same revenge mission as AC Milan managed in 2007 when the Rossoneri beat the Reds just two years after their Istanbul debacle that saw them blow a three-goal lead in the 2005 Final.
Arguably Liverpool’s 2018 Champions League final loss seemingly spurred them on to create a better squad, with the likes of Alisson joining that summer due to Loris Karius’ blunders. Klopp’s men realised their potential and now come into this final four years later as favourites to lift the trophy.
