In comparison to recent years, Liverpool’s journey to the final has been fairly uneventful. Manager Jurgen Klopp guided the Reds easily through Group B, winning all six games and conceding just six goals.

Liverpool then got past Inter Milan, Benfica and Villarreal to secure their ticket in Paris, in their bid to win a seventh European Cup. They will be hoping to repeat their triumph in the French capital back in 1981, where Alan Kennedy scored the winning goal in the same fixture.

Real Madrid

It’s yet another final for the Galacticos, and what a journey they have had to get there!

Like Liverpool, Madrid made light work of Group D and only conceded three goals as they easily topped the standings ahead of Inter. But the drama was just getting started for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Three epic comebacks in each of their knockout games ensured they would be appearing in a 16th Champions League final. Having come from behind against Paris Saint-Germain to win in the second leg, similarly so against Chelsea.

If you thought that was where the story ended – you would be wrong! The majority of football fans thought that Manchester City would reach the final for the second year running after Riyad Mahrez scored a second-half goal to stretch their lead to two.

But two late goals from Rodrygo sent the match to extra-time, and Karim Benzema netted from the spot to complete the fightback.
