Real Madrid vs Liverpool Soccer Game

Liverpool and Real Madrid will face off in the Champions League final in Kiev, Ukraine on Saturday.

Fans are gathering in the Ukrainian capital Kiev for the biggest event in the footballing calendar - the European Champions League final.

However, the world's most expensive defender says his laid-back style nearly cost his side during their quarter-final second leg against Manchester City, when his early mistake allowed Gabriel Jesus to open the scoring inside two minutes.

Real Madrid, who play in Spain's La Liga, are led by Portuguese star Christiano Ronaldo in the attack. In the quarterfinals, the 12-time European Cup winners won the first leg against Juventus 3-0 away from home but needed a last-minute penalty to knock out the Serie A giants after going three goals down at home.

However, the Telegraph believe that there is a way around it. But probably they can not be in their best level right now. He plays in a complicated position.

"You analyse Real Madrid playing in other games against other teams and you think "wow, they are really strong", but they never played us". This club has it in its DNA that it can really go for the big things. "It's another final and we have the same chance of winning it as they do", Zidane told a news conference on Friday. "Mo has had a good start but we will see what happens in the next few years".

Liverpool, who play in England's Premier League, boast two goal-scoring powerhouses in Egypt's Mohamed Salah and Brazil's Roberto Firmino.

"Lionel Messi and Ronaldo deserve all the praise they have had in the past because they were constantly all those years on that level".

"He's fine. You have to know something, he lives for games like this", said Zinedine Zidane, who can become the first coach to win three consecutive Champions League titles. Both have found the back of the net 11 times during the tournament.

Ronaldo played for United from 2003 to 2009, scoring 118 goals in 292 appearances for the club. I am very optimistic. "I know they're good players, they're really talented players".

"People are trying to put pressure on me?" he said, laughing.

"We have had two weeks to prepare for this game".

In a match that will make or break their season, Real have the opportunity to win a 13th continental crown - one that would be their third in a row.
