Liverpool hoping experience not everything in final against Real

Madrid are going for their third consecutive Champions League title, an unprecedented achievement in the Champions League era.

As Liverpool and Real Madrid geared up for the final of the Champions League, there has been conflicting reports on whether Salah will observe fast for today's match.

On the press box monitors in the Olimpiyskiy Stadium the list of starting line-ups, in formation, alongside substitutes were broadcast on Friday night. Valencia were the last side to suffer that fate when they lost to Bayern Munich in the 2001 Champions League final.

"We have to treat tomorrow as if it's our first Champions League final". Carvajal missed most of the semi-final through injury but is back in the side and will be in for a tough time up against Salah.

The Madrid side's key striker, Cristiano Ronaldo is widely regarded alongside Barcelona's Lionel Messi, as one of the greatest players of his generation.

A match winning performance in Ukraine will secure his position in Anfield lore and ensure his status as one of Europe's most prized players for years to come.

30 minutes until KO: STAT: Real Madrid name the same XI that started the final against Juventus last year, while nine of the players selected by Zidane also started against Atletico Madrid two years ago.

Our very own Tomás Roncero, the world's biggest Real Madrid fan, is in Kiev, soaking up the atmosphere in the fan zones.

The Spanish giants are targeting their fourth Champions League title in five years and their third in a row in the game, which kicks off at 1845 GMT.

Liverpool, who play in England's Premier League, boast two goal-scoring powerhouses in Egypt's Mohamed Salah and Brazil's Roberto Firmino. The games we had in the Champions League, it was the most exceptional run to a final, with the most goals. "I am pretty sure in the second before the game Real Madrid will be more confident than we are, but the game doesn't end in that second, it only starts", Klopp said. "Not only are we a really good football team, it's in the club's DNA to go for the big things".
