LiveFootballTickets.com has last minutes for the Champions League Final

Real Madrid face Premier League giant side Liverpool in Saturday's Champions League final at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev (kick-off 19:45 BST). Super aggressive Real have won the competition 3 times in the past 4 seasons, while Liverpool FC enjoyed their last European victory in 2005. The Champions League final promises to be a rare and mouth-watering meeting of outstanding giant clubs that will surely live up to its billing as the top event in European football. Real Madrid and Liverpool have 17 European Cups between them - however, Liverpool’s stellar total of five titles is dwarfed by the Spanish club’s twelve.

Titan Spain La Liga club and 12 times Champions League winners Real Madrid have earned their spot in a third consecutive Champions League final, and they have the chance to do something historic if Los Blancos win the competition for three successive seasons. The last club to win the Champions League final three times in a row was Bayern Munich between 1974-1976. Notably, previously Real won the league trophy in its first 5 years, 1956-1960 when it was known as the European Cup.

Juventus v Real Madrid - UEFA Champions League Final

Teammates, fans, and coaches are once again counting on Real superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who scored 2 goals in last year's 4-1 Champions League 2017 final victory against giant German Bundesliga club Juventus. And in 2016, CR7 netted the winning penalty in the shootout against Spanish La Liga arch-rivals Atletico Madrid. Ronaldo scored the winner in extra-time against opponents Atletico Madrid in 2014.

As a result, Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane believes his star forward Ronaldo will have the "most possible" influence as a key footballer in the final, saying the Portugal international "is the best so it will be the maximum".

Juventus v Real Madrid - UEFA Champions League Final

Cristiano Ronaldo who won the "Man of the Match" in 2017 is confident and fired up to make history going into the Champions League final again.

"We can make history if we win 3 Champions Leagues in a row, but we're not looking at it like that," said Ronaldo. "I am keeping the faith, I feel good about it. These finals are always special occasions. We need to respect Liverpool. They deserve their place in the final. They remind me of the Real Madrid of days gone by, with fast, pacey forwards. I think we are better, but of course, you always have to respect your rivals."

Real Madrid’s German midfielder Toni Kroos talked about his side’s driven opponents from the English Premier League.

"Liverpool will have 11 players running like wild animals, they will be driven for the full 90 minutes and they'll be playing at 100% or more if possible. Their front line is impressive but they have a good defense and a solid midfield. Being favorites does not mean anything."

Twenty-eight-year-old Gareth Bale became the world's most expensive player when he joined Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur for £85m in 2013. Real Madrid’s popular Welsh forward Bale says reaching a fourth Champions League final has "blown any expectations I had out of the water". Bale featured in the recent Real Champions League triumphs, also winning the Spain La Liga and the Copa del Rey.

"This is history," said Bale. "I came to this great club to win titles and it is going to be a special day. I feel great, I am ready for the final. Last year we got our second Champions League in a row and now we want more. We know this is no mean feat, we are up against a determined side. I think I am on fine form physically. I never imagined playing in so many finals. I have played in three and this could be a fourth win, it has blown any expectations I had out of the water."

Juventus v Real Madrid - UEFA Champions League Final

French manager Zinedine Zidane has to decide whether or not Bale will start in the final on Saturday after the Wales international's 5 goals in his past 4 starts.

"He is playing very well, he has scored many goals recently," said Zidane. "Not only that but he has been very consistent. He has not played so much, but the last three games he has played he has played well."

Liverpool update

Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his Liverpool side's "desire, attitude and work-rate" will help them to defeat "experienced" 12-time European champions Real Madrid. Five-time winners Liverpool face the Spanish giants, who are attempting to win their third straight Champions League, in Saturday's final in Kiev. The Reds fought hard throughout the season and won a spot in the Champions League final for the first time since 2007. Klopp has told his side to be "brave" and play in the same way they did when they defeated current 2017-2018 English Premier League champions Man City in the quarter-finals and Roma in the semi-finals.

"Real Madrid are more experienced," said Reds boss Klopp. "Experience is important in life, but it is not the only thing. You can level it with desire, attitude, and work-rate, and that is why I love football. We will try in a very positive way to show the boys why it makes so much sense to be really brave. It was not easy to be brave against Manchester City, it was not easy to be brave against Roma. But the boys did it."

And of course Jurgen Klopp is counting on the performance of the Premier League’s top goal scorer this season, Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah, who is reportedly valued at £148m by CIES Football Observatory, £54m more than four-time Champions League winner Ronaldo.

Joe Gomez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Joel Matip are ruled out of the Champions League final. German midfielder Emre Can, who has missed the past two months with a back injury, trained with the rest of the squad at Anfield on Monday. Klopp was cautious about Can being involved in the final.

"It depends always on the reaction. But let me put it this way, 10 days ago I didn't think it is possible he could do what he did today. It looked good. It was really positive but we have to wait. The door is open - he is really desperate to be a part. We shall see."

James Milner, who missed the final Premier League game of the season against Brighton, also trained. Former Spain midfielder Xabi Alonso, who has previously won the Champions League with both Liverpool and Real Madrid, is betting on the Reds to win.

"I think that to win, Liverpool will have to play an almost perfect match and will have to prepare everything in every detail, analysing all the strengths and weaknesses of Madrid and how to tackle them. I don't think Madrid will change the way they play for Liverpool. I think they've had a very specific way of playing in recent years, and the players know how to orchestrate it very well. In fact, it's in the big games that they're the best, and I'm sure we'll see a great Real Madrid in the final."

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: BAYERN 1-2 REAL MADRID

Real Madrid beat Bayern Munich in semis first leg

Match Report

Champions League semi-finals: Bayern Munich 1-2 Real Madrid

Bayern Munich goal: Kimmich (28' minutes)

Real Madrid goals: Marcelo (44' minutes), Asensio (57' minutes)

Allianz Arena, Munich, Germany

Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid side inflicted German champions Bayern Munich first home defeat of the season while winning 2-1 at Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena in the first leg of their Champions League semifinals tie moving towards a third successive Champions League crown. Goals from Marcelo and Marco Asensio gave Real Madrid a one-goal lead for the return leg at the Bernabeu after Joshua Kimmich's opener for Bayern. Marcelo's third Champions League goal of the campaign started Real's fightback.

"How do they do it?" said football analyst and former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin. "They weren't brilliant - they have some incredible individual players. But you watch some other teams and you are blown away by them as a collective. But for Real there is nothing spectacularly special out there apart from Cristiano Ronaldo, maybe Marcelo, and the rest of them are very good players playing quite well. I really can't tell you how they do it. They survive with a bit of luck, Bayern had a load of chances, but Real somehow find a way."

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand said: "Real know how to get the job done. There's a ruggedness about them. And they have individuals who can turn games in an instant."

"I think if we had won 5-2, Real couldn't have had many complaints," said Bayern defender Niklas Sule.

Toni Kroos says Real's individual quality was key in the decisive points in the match.

"We have to be there at the important moments, we were," said the Germany international.

Real have lost twice in their Champions League campaign to date, a 3-1 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in November then scraping through to an aggregate win in spite of a 3-1 reverse on home turf against Juventus in the last eight.

Next Bayern have to overturn a goal deficit to book a spot in the final against either Liverpool or Roma on 26 May. Bayern have fallen at the semi-finals in three of the past four seasons, and manager Jupp Heynckes was left wondering what might have been with Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery all missing good chances.

"We had so many chances, it was strange. I've never seen us have so many chances in a semi-final, especially against a team like Real Madrid," he said. "We simply weren't clinical enough and we gifted Real their goals.”

Bayern were missing goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, defender David Alaba and midfielder Arturo Vidal, while center-back Jerome Boateng and winger Arjen Robben were forced off early.

"We want to do whatever it takes to put this result right next week. It's our duty. We didn't deserve to lose today, so I'm confident."

German football writer Archie Rhind-Tutt asked, "I would also ask how well Bayern are playing this season? They have won the Bundesliga by a country mile but have not really raised their level when they have had to win. I wonder how much of a difference that made tonight? The standard has dropped ever since Pep Guardiola left Bayern, in terms of the standards of their performances. If you talk to their fans, they would say that they have not seen the same football since he left. Bayern would play teams off the park for the entirety of games. They miss him."

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: LIVERPOOL 5-2 ROMA

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: LIVERPOOL 5-2 ROMA

Liverpool soundly defeats AS Roma 5-2 in Champions League Semi-finals

"The greatest match I've seen in 30 years at Anfield," Reds fans react to their club's win against Roma.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said his side will withstand another Roma match next week after seizing control of their Champions League semi-final first leg tie with an amazing performance highlighted by “world class” superstar striker Mo Salah. Mohamed Salah led the Red’s onslaught to leave Roma with a mountain to climb to get back. The Egyptian forward dazzled his former club with 2 exquisite goals, taking his goal tally for the campaign to 43, and 2 assists as Liverpool swept into a 5-0 lead before conceding two late goals to Roma. The 5-2 result means Roma must replicate their brilliant comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals to deny Liverpool a spot in the Champions League final in Kiev on 26 May. Klopp, concerned by the probable loss of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the rest of the season through injury, said his men will be ready for a backlash at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome next Wednesday.

“Since I arrived Liverpool has always had to take the more difficult way but in the end Liverpool always succeeded and that’s what we have to do again,” Klopp said. “If one of my players doesn’t think Roma will try to come back, then he will not play. The boys played a brilliant game over a very long period. Even the last minutes, when we conceded, Dejan Lovren was outstandingly good and this ball he misjudged. that is no problem if the full-back is in the right position. We made one mistake and the ref made one mistake and that was two goals for them. We take the penalty. We have to work again in Rome, that is no problem. There would have been work to do if we won 5-0 because Roma would do everything to strike back. What I learned tonight is that we can win the second leg too. Roma need to score against us and we are not Barcelona. Barcelona is one of the two or three best teams in the world and won so many things in the last few years. We didn’t so we will fight with all we have for the result.”

Mohamed Salah was on fire. Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard said of the PFA player of the year Mo Salah.

“Without a shadow of a doubt he is the ‘best player on the planet’ right now.”

Mohamed Salah reportedly will be rewarded with a prestigious piece of land in Mecca. Superstar Liverpool striker Salah has a lot to celebrate - his Champions League semi-final form where he notched two goals and two assists in the first leg against Roma, his PFA Player of the Year award win, and now the land in Mecca. Last weekend he was awarded the award ahead of Kevin De Bruyne as a reward for his 31 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League to date this season. And now the vice president of the local municipality in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, has revealed that he plans to award a piece of land in the area to Salah as congratulations. Salah was the main man for Liverpool against Roma in midweek.

"There are several choices regarding giving this piece of land," said Fahd Al-Rowky. "The way to go will be determined by Mohamed Salah as well as the Saudi system. If the Saudi system allows the land to be owned by Salah, he will be given a piece of land in Holy Mecca outside Haram. The other option will be to have a mosque built on the land in his name."

Salah celebrates each of his goals for Liverpool with an Islamic prayer. Mecca is the religion's holiest city as it was the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad.

Klopp said that mantle had to be earned over a longer period than one season but has no doubt of the former Roma player’s credentials.

“Outstanding, pretty much not able to defend,” said Klopp, who substituted Salah at 5-0 and saw Liverpool’s performance dip markedly. “The first 15 minutes we needed to adapt to their formation and then we played how we played and he has a massive impact on that. The first goal is just a genius strike, he scored already a few like this which makes clear it is no coincidence. The second is brilliant play, Bobby Firmino between the lines and he makes the pass and then Mo makes the other two goals. If anyone wants to say it is my mistake that we concede the two goals because I change the striker, I have no problem with that. Mo was running all the time and it would not have helped us if he gets an injury. What a player. If you think he is the best in the world, write it or say it. He is in outstandingly good shape, world-class shape, but to be the best in the world you need to do it over a longer period, I think. The other two are not bad.”

Roma manager Eusebio Di Francesco said memories of the three-goal comeback against Barcelona would give Roma hope for the second leg.

“Let me remind you once again the tie is not over, and we have proved it,” said Di Francesco. “We have shown we can come back. We scored three goals at home against Barcelona, so we can do it. If any of my players does not believe we can win, they can stay away from the second leg.”

German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich take on Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final tie at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday in a repeat of last season's quarterfinal clash. Manager Jupp Heynckes's Bayern booked their spot in the semis with ease having overcome Sevilla 2-1 in the quarters, while Los Blancos' progress was slightly more difficult. Zinedine Zidane's side appeared to be strolling through when they thrashed Juventus 3-0 in the first leg in Turin. However, a remarkable come back in the return leg saw Bianconeri secure three goals. The tie looked to be heading into extra time until Real Madrid were awarded a controversial last-minute penalty that superstar striker Cristiano Ronaldo converted to secure a 4-3 aggregate victory.
