Liverpool are on their way to Kiev for their eighth Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Thousands of Liverpool fans are already in Ukraine as they hope to see their beloved side win their sixth European Cup.

It’s been a nightmare for many supporters to even get there with ridiculous prices being quoted for flights and accommodation - plus the fact Kiev is quite far away from Liverpool.

But if the Champions League final was on the moon, Kopites would find a way to get there.

However, those problems have also affected Liverpool’s plans, it seems.

That’s because, according to the Liverpool Echo, they will be flying straight back home after the final whistle.

They’ve taken the decision not to stay in the Ukrainian capital regardless of the result, something they haven’t done on the seven previous occasions they’ve been in a European Cup final.


But why?

The Echo say: “A number of factors convinced Jurgen Klopp and his players that they would be better off heading home in the early hours of Sunday instead.

“One is the lack of suitable accommodation in Kiev for family and friends, who will now accompany them on the three-and-a-half hour return flight to John Lennon Airport.”


There is going to be one hell of a party on board that flight if Liverpool win.

On the other hand, that could be a very silent three-and-a-half hours if Real Madrid are victorious.

It will also allow the Liverpool players to return home in time for their potential trophy parade on Sunday.

The parade around the city is set to start at midday.
