In the city of love, Liverpool and Real Madrid are meeting this Saturday at 21:00 (we will watch it live with commentary on our website) at the Champions League epilogue. The meeting, which already promises to sparkle between the two teams looking for a third title of the season. At the Stade de France, the Reds and Merengues will play the most prestigious finals. “The most important game in world football”as recently described by Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.
Mersey Club on one side. Manchester City’s Dauphin, crowned England champion Liverpool, voracious for the League Cup and English Cup titles, is still looking for a resounding hat-trick in the event of the seventh C1 coronation. And what about his evening rival. Led by the dazzling Karim Benzema (44 goals and 15 assists in 45 matches in all competitions), the Merengues, already crowned Spanish champions and winners of the Spanish Super Cup, will strive for the fourteenth notch with big ears!
Hattrick in sight!
For this shock at the top, Jürgen Klopp should also be able to count on all his strong men and he could opt for 4-3-3. Robertson, van Dijk, Konaté and Alexander-Arnold will defend the defensive four in the goal of the leveled Alisson. Thiago Alcantara, who was released due to injuries last weekend against Wolverhampton (3: 1), is expected to step on the bench. In the middle of the Reds advance, Keita is approached alongside Fabin and Jordan Henderson. Eventually, the elusive Luis Diaz is announced at the head of the attack to start alongside the two monsters Salah and Mané.
On the other hand, Real Madrid should also start this final at 4-3-3. No wonder Courtois is announced as a starter in Madrid cages. Merengues Carvajal, Militão, Alaba and Mendy will defend the Belgian goalkeeper. On Wednesday, the Modric-Casemiro-Kroos trio will have the full confidence of Carl Ancelotti. Finally, and without a last-minute twist, the versatile Federico Valverde could have started on the right side of the attack, next to Vinicius Jr. and the unstoppable Benzema. The young Brazilian Rodrygo, the hero of the semi-final against Manchester City, should start the match on the bench.
