Liverpool face holders Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev, Ukraine this evening.

Madrid are chasing their third successive title and their 13th of all time – while five-time winners Liverpool are in the final for the first time in 11 years. Both teams have met before at this stage of the tournament in 1981 with the English side winning 1-0.

The Reds overcame Roma in the semi-final to book their trip to Ukraine, marginally edging a remarkable 13-goal tie, with Los Blancos narrowly beating Bayern Munich in the other tie.

There are no latest injuries in the Liverpool squad except for long-term absentees Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee), Joe Gomez (ankle) and Joel Matip (thigh). James Milner and Emre Can are fit to play after recovering on time.

Madrid, on the other hand, will be at full-strength in Kiev. Gareth Bale will be pushing for a starting place alongside Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.
