Liverpool-Real Madrid Four years after Reds vs. Blancos again, this time it’s also the challenge between Klopp and Ancelotti: it’s played at 9 p.m. in Paris at the Stade de France. TV guide
Four years after the night
in Kiev, May 26, 2018, Real Madrid finds Liverpool again on the road to Champions. In Ukraine it was a Blancos triumph thanks to Karius’ wretched bloopers. Now it’s a different story: there are 19 cups on the field (13 the Spanish, six the English). It’s played in Paris at the Stade de France: on the pitch at 9 p.m., live on Channel 5, Mediaset Infinity, TimVision, Sky Sport Uno, Sky Sport Football, Sky Sport 4K and Sky Sports.
“We are playing against the most titled team Liverpool-Real Madrid,
with a coach who has already won it. The only thing we’re thinking about is how to play the game, we’re not thinking about what it could be. Rematch? We lost that game. And again, “If you think about the history, the experience of the opponent, how Real Madrid came back from certain situations, then I think the favorite is Real Madrid. If we are at the top it is really difficult to play against us. I’ve lost a lot of finals in my life.”
For his part, Carlo Ancelotti is in his fifth Champions Liverpool-Real Madrid
final as a coach in his career: three he has won (with AC Milan in 2003 and 2007 and with Real in 2014), one he has lost (in Istanbul with AC Milan in 2005 just against Liverpool). May 28 brought him luck: with the Diavolo he won his first Champions League as a coach, winning at Old Trafford against Juventus. “I really enjoyed this year, with my players, I will continue to enjoy it. We have to show our quality, we did it in the season, the players who came in gave everything and made the difference. It will be an intense challenge, with a lot of verticality. My fifth final? It is rare to think, but the challenge we played best, in 2005, we lost it. I won’t tell my players to play badly, but in a final anything can happen. We have to be ready for anything.”
