The Scout: Champions League Final

Liverpool vs Real Madrid

These two giants of European football met in the Champions League Final back in 2018 with Real Madrid emerging 3-1 victors in a controversial affair. Liverpool will be hoping for redemption four years later and enter the match as favourites to do so.

Despite a 3-1 win in the final game of the Premier League season, Jurgen Klopp’s men fell agonizingly short in their pursuit of the title. As disappointing as this was, Liverpool remain in tremendous form, unbeaten in 18 straight matches, winning 15 of those.

Real Madrid’s form is not quite as strong, but they claimed the La Liga title this season and their play to this point of the Champions League has been simply incredible. Their road to the final saw them best Manchester City, PSG and Chelsea, so they cannot be underestimated.

In this matchup, Liverpool having the better overall starting XI, but Real Madrid have proven they can beat any side in the world. Both sides are overflowing with attacking options, so I’m expecting a high scoring match, with Karim Benzema (15 goals in the Champions League this season) the man most likely for Real.
