Not many, least of Liverpool fans, would have predicted that their club would be in the final of the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp’s team will take on Real Madrid in Kiev this Saturday in the hope of earning the Reds’ sixth European crown.
It has been over a decade since the Merseyside outfit were in the final of the prestigious competition, but it is familiar ground for Madrid as they are hunting for their third consecutive trophy.
Many Liverpool fans have already predicted a high-scoring game, mainly due to the fact that Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are expected to be on show.
On top of that, Cristiano Ronaldo is the star man in Zinedine Zidane’s Real side, and has devastated many defences this season.
If nothing can separate the two sides after 90 minutes then extra time and even penalties could ensue.
Most Liverpool supporters are praying that the showdown is won in normal time, as the prospects of a shootout is rattling the nerves.
Other fans have listed who they would select as penalty takers, and there are a few amusing suggestions.
