Real Madrid XI vs Liverpool: Champions League final prediction, kick-off time, Nigerian TV, live stream, team news, h2h- how to watch

Liverpool will take to the pitch for the 63rd and final time this season when they face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday night.

The Reds have appeared in every possible match, reaching the finals of all three knockout competitions, and their sights are now set on adding European glory to their FA Cup and Carabao Cup victories.

After Manchester City’s dramatic Premier League title win, Liverpool’s quadruple hopes are over, but the Champions League is far more than a consolation prize.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will face Real Madrid in a rematch of the 2018 final, and they will be hoping for a different result. Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, has confirmed that there are no injury concerns heading into Saturday’s Champions League final.

Whereas Liverpool has been fighting on multiple fronts, Madrid has been given the opportunity to relax a little.

The La Liga title was wrapped up a few weeks ago, and the team is in good shape heading to Paris.

The most interesting debate this season is on the right-hand side of the attack, where Ancelotti’s first-choice XI has largely chosen itself.

Rodrygo, of course, has been instrumental in getting Madrid to the final, but Federico Valverde’s added protection against such a dangerous Liverpool side could be crucial. Another option is Marco Asensio, the hero against Juventus in 2017.

In other news, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric will lead the team to their fifth Champions League final in eight years, with Dani Carvajal, Casemiro, and Toni Kroos bringing valuable experience. Marcelo, the club captain, is currently the only doubt.

After missing the last six weeks of the season, Gareth Bale, Isco, and the rarely-used Eden Hazard are all expected to start on the bench.
