This is it. Real Madrid’s chance of winning what would be a historic third straight Champions League title. Los Blancos get to this Final as healthy as they can be but Liverpool will surely make things tough for Zidane’s men.
Real Madrid Predicted XI: Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modrić, Isco; Ronaldo, Bale
Liverpool Predicted XI: Karius; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson; Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum; Mané, Firmino, Salah
Out: Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee ligaments), Gomez (ankle), Matip (thigh)
Doubtful: Emre Can (back)
Real Madrid should have enough to beat Liverpool. However, they must find some kind of defensive rhythm as Klopp’s men will surely go after them in every counterattacking chance they get. Expect Madrid trying to control the tempo of the game through the midfield with Liverpool applying intense pressing on both Kroos and Modric early on. Ramos, Varane and Casemiro will need to be very solid if Carvajal and Marcelo want to complete a good offensive performance.
