Liverpool’s clash with Real Madrid offers Jurgen Klopp’s side the chance to add a third major trophy to their cup haul in 2021-22. The Reds have already clinched the EFL Cup and the FA Cup but were edged out by Manchester City in the Premier League title race.
However, Los Blancos’ ‘special relationship’ with the Champions League means Carlo Ancelotti’s charges will be ready for the challenge after winning La Liga last month.
Liverpool do have a clear edge in terms of recent form, with an incredible run of one defeat in 34 games in all competitions since the start of 2022, including Champions League wins over Inter, Benfica and Villarreal.
Ancelotti has opted to rest his veteran stars in recent weeks, with their Spanish title already confirmed, and they head into the final on the back of one win in their last four games.
That gives Liverpool an edge, but Real Madrid’s Champions League form in 2022, with memorable comeback wins over PSG and City, make it almost impossible to pick a favourite inside 90 minutes, with a draw a strong possibility.
Both sides will fancy their chances of scoring inside normal time, with Liverpool scoring in 30 of their 34 games in 2022, and Real Madrid on target in 11 of their last 13 outings in all competitions.
Within that run of form, four of Liverpool’s last six games have included 2.5+ total goals inside 90 minutes of action with Real Madrid managing that feat in three of their last six.
This tie has the potential to go past 90 minutes and on into extra time and penalties, with Liverpool already winning two final shootouts this season, and Real Madrid winning their last seven successive Champions League final appearances.
