Champions League final: Real Madrid

Liverpool's three-man strike force of Egyptian Mohamed Salah, Brazilian Roberto Firmino, and Senegalese Sadio Mane, have picked up 29 of their goals in the tournament.

Soccer fans from around the globe have flocked to Kyiv for the May 26 UEFA Champions League final.

Massimilinao Allegri's side battled bravely to force their way back into a last-eight encounter only to be undone by the concession of a controversial stoppage-time penalty at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real head coach Zinedine Zidane has a full complement of players to choose from, with the chief question mark revolving around whether Gareth Bale or Karim Benzema will partner Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.

Ronaldo is top scorer in the Champions League for a remarkable sixth year in a row, with 15 goals in 12 games in this season's competition.

Neither team has any players suspended for the match, but Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopps will be missing three players due to injury: midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain; and defenders Joel Matip and Joe Gomez. "Because we are Liverpool". "No manager is interested in that - we are only interested in performing", the Liverpool manager said when asked about the Ballon d'Or at his pre-final press conference. These two players are the most consistent on a higher level over the last 10 years and that makes them really special. "We are playing another final on Saturday and the fans are behind Cristiano". "We need to play very well to win the game and inside the dressing room we know we are not favourites".

Having attended last season's Champions League decider in Cardiff, the approach was not a formal one. But the Olympiysky National Sports Complex, where the game will kick off at 9:45 p.m., is not the only place that has caught fans' attention. A win Saturday would see them victors three consecutive years, the first team to do so since Germany's Bayern Munich won the then-called European Cup final from 1974-76.
