Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool players will face the biggest test of their careers so far when they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
The relatively inexperienced side will face a team that are hunting for their third consecutive European crown.
Historically, the Reds have a huge presence in the competition given that they have won the trophy five times already, but they have not been in the final since 2007.
Klopp also has an unfortunate record when it comes to finals as he has lost five as a manager.
The Merseyside outfit have a must-not-lose Premier League game against Brighton on the final day of the domestic season this Sunday, but after that focus will solely be on the Champions League showdown in Kiev.
Already, Liverpool fans have been predicting hefty scorelines due to the potent attack of both clubs.
However, it seems that Real Madrid’s honorary president Paco Gento believes that it will be a walk in the park for Los Blancos.
According to Spanish publication AS, the six-time European Cup winner claimed that the final “will be a piece of cake” for Madrid.
Unsurprisingly, Liverpool fans responded to these comments, with many hoping it backfires on the La Liga giants.
