Real Madrid – Liverpool FREE PICKS

Does King Salah throw the royals of the Champions League throne? Or does the Spanish record champion finally win the coveted trophy in club football for the third time in a row? On Saturday, we’ll get answers to these and many other questions when the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium of Kyiv Real Madrid and Liverpool FC face each other in the Champions League final. The Spaniards are the favorite among bookmakers, but large parts of the football world, the Reds want to be the winner in this duel. After losing with his clubs five finals in a row, it would be particularly great for Jürgen Klopp, if he could win the most important competition at club level against the defending champion.

Real Madrid:

For a long time now, everything revolves around “Real Madrid!” “To the thirteen! – or to the thirteenth title in the Champions League. After the early as well as embarrassing end in the Spanish Copa del Rey against Leganes and the triumphal march of FC Barcelona in La Liga with its own weak performances was relatively early in the season clear that Real Madrid after winning the national and the European Supercup and the Club World Cup “only” could still win the Champions League. With 22 wins, ten draws, six defeats and 76 points at 94:44 goals, Real Madrid finished third in the national league behind Barca and city rivals Atletico Madrid. Of his last four games in La Liga Real Madrid could win only one. That was a 6-0 home win over Celta Vigo. Elsewhere there was a 2-2 away at Barcelona and the season finale at Villarreal and a 2: 3 on the third to last match day at Sevilla FC.

The fact that Real Madrid are in the final of the Champions League is somewhat happy in retrospect. The group stage with the opponents Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia could make the Royal still very convincing with four wins and a draw and a defeat each against the Spurs. Also in the second round of the Blancos had with two wins against PSG rather few problems. Then came the quarter-final against Juventus as Real Madrid won the first leg away 3-0 and at home at the score of 0: 3 only in the seventh minute stoppage time (!) After a questionable penalty prevented an extra time. Against Bayern Real Madrid was according to prevailing opinion in both semi-final matches, the worse team, but prevailed in particular due to individual mistakes of Munich and the lack of opportunity utilization of the German record champions at the end with 2: 1 away and 2: 2 at home. In both games against Bayern remained Cristiano Ronaldo largely pale. In the ten Champions League games before, the world footballer had always met at least once. The European champion also leads the scoring list in the premier class with fifteen goals.


Unlike their opponents, Liverpool FC had to give their all in the domestic Premier League until the end to secure their participation in the Champions League in the upcoming season. In the end, this project succeeded despite a 0-1 defeat at direct competitor Chelsea on penultimate match day. At the conclusion of the league operation, the Reds won at home with 4: 0 against Brighton & Hove Albion and fortified by itself fourth place, which is sufficient for direct participation in the premier class. The scoring against Brighton opened Mohamed Salah, who also set a new record. As the first player, the Egyptian scored 32 goals in a Premier League season, since this includes 38 games. The previous record with 31 hits shared Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez. With a total of 84 goals, Liverpool had the most in the Premier League behind champions Manchester City. But the Reds were not only in the domestic league accurate.

Even in the premier class stingy Liverpool not with goals. On the contrary: With 46 hits so far, the English set a new record and replaced in this statistic from FC Barcelona, ​​who brought it in the 1999/2000 season to a total of 45 hits. Cristiano Ronaldo may lead the scorers list in the Champions League, but the next best king is Karim Benzema and only gets four goals. On the side of Liverpool Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah can each show ten goals, Sadio Mane comes to currently nine. This also reveals Ronaldo’s Reals dependency, while Liverpool shines as a team. On the way to Kiev, Liverpool prevailed in the group with three wins and three draws against Sevilla FC, Spartak Moscow and Maribor. Also in the round of 16 against Porto and in the quarter-final against Manchester City the Reds remained unbeaten. Only in the semi-final second leg at AS Roma, there was the first bankruptcy as Liverpool lost in the Eternal City with 2: 4. However, after beating home 5-2 at home, that defeat was enough for the final, which was not really threatened even in the second leg, as it was 2-2 up until the 86th minute when Roma beat 4-2 at the final whistle.
