Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo: Liverpool Remind Me Of...
With Real Madrid and their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo taking on Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final this weekend, the Portuguese superstar has now spoken about who the Reds remind him of.
Los Blancos are looking to win their third consecutive UCL trophy in Kyiv, Ukraine, on Saturday, while the Reds will be hoping to recreate their 2005 Istanbul success.
Jurgen Klopp's side, spearheaded by their front three of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, has exceeded expectations in Europe this season, which has impressed Ronaldo.
The 33-year-old says this Liverpool side is reminiscent of Real a few years ago, when it was himself, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale running at defences with sheer pace.
"Liverpool remind me of the Real Madrid team of a few years ago, with three quick forwards up front," Ronaldo said, according to Marca.
"Finals are always special, it doesn't matter which team you face. I don't think it will be easy, though, they have qualified on merit.
"I think Real Madrid are a better team, but we have to demonstrate this in the match."
Liverpool's front three have scored 29 goals between them in Europe this season, while "BBC" have scored a combined 20 goals so far.
