Possible Starting Lineups

Real Madrid

Taylor Brostrom |

What to watch for

  • Cristiano Ronaldo has had another amazing campaign in the Champions League, leading the league in scoring with 15 goals
  • Bale would be a secondary force in the attack on Real Madrid
  • Real Madrid have a strong midfield three of Kroos, Casemiro, and Modric
  • Real Madrid are looking for their third straight Champions League Cup

What to watch for

  • Salah has had just a phenomenal season and will be the imminent danger for Liverpool
  • Liverpool’s fullbacks are lacking experience and could be a focal point
  • Since the arrival of van Dijk, the defense has been shored up
  • Liverpool lead the competition with 40 goals scored
  • James Milner has been huge this season leading with 9 assists
  • The front three of Salah, Firmino, and Mane have been the large part of the offense of Liverpool with 10, 10, and 9 goals respectively
  • Klopp does not have the best record in cup finals winning 1 of 3

Other Notes on the Match

  • Looking forward to a high offensive match between the two
  • In the last match, Liverpool failed to finish off Roma in a match that was more tense than it should have been
  • The match is set up as Cristiano Ronaldo vs Salah, but the supporting cast will be key to winning
  • I have Real Madrid as the favourites in the match but, Liverpool could surprise
