Zinedine Zidane's men secured their spot in a third successive European Cup final after defeating Bayern Munich 4-3 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

Los Blancos could become the first side in the Champions League era to win the trophy three times in a row.

Liverpool, meanwhile, last reached the final of the competition in 2007, where they lost 2-1 to AC Milan in Athens.

Jurgen Klopp's men defeated AS Roma 7-6 on aggregate in the last round to secure their spot in the final and they will be looking to win the tournament for a sixth time.

Real Madrid will be looking to Cristiano Ronaldo to get among the goals. The Portuguese has netted 15 goals in the competition this season, while Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has 10 European strikes so far this term.

@RayzaKhosistency it's a pity that when Madrid are being Pushed by Refs they Win the Trophy because they r also the best unlike Cowcerlona when the r pushed by Referees they end up being Punished by even Smaller Teams Like Roma,u think we Forgot what Happened to PSG sies

@@ Tchillimbou 2-0 : you can try to justify Penaldo's attitude as much as you like but the Penaldo we all know becomes bitter and jealousy at teammates whenever they score.Remember one incident he was so angry at teammate for scoring ahead of him...he claimed the player should've left the ball for him to score as he was in contention with King Messi for the Pichichi,he never even bother to celebrate that goal with teammates.it was shocking...infact Cp7's attitude sucks.

I never liked this Ramos monster and now I hate him even more for intentionally injuring the African prince Salah.
