LiveFootballTickets.com has last minute tickets 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, Real won the European 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".

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."

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."

Manager Zidane included every first-team player on the squad list. He will make his final list at game time, given that only seven players are allowed on the bench.

Liverpool Training Session And Press Conference

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager

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."
