Part 4 – Kiev 2018: How can they win?

Real Madrid have the edge in terms of experience, squad depth, a bloodier run-in to the final and the presence of two magicians Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane. They have shown that even they are not the better team, they can win big games on individual players’ brilliance. If they keep their calm and play with Liverpool’s nerves, Real should have a third consecutive Champions League crown come the end of the day Saturday.

Liverpool on the other hand will need to play their game of the season – anything less might not be enough to beat Madrid. The attitude, hard work and grit shown by Klopp’s men combined with the prolific attacking trident of Salah, Mane and Firmino could well be a thorn in Madrid’s side, provided they can keep their focus and avoid further injuries ahead of the big game.

See you all for the big game today!
