Nobody really foresaw Mohamed Salah having such a prolific season.

Ramos does believe that Liverpool are worthy finalists.

While Liverpool's run to the final has been a surprise, Madrid are in the decider for the fourth time in five seasons.

Goalkeeper Loris Karius was plucked from Mainz in Germany.

"We worked really hard for the last two years for it". We know how to make it interesting don't we?' the midfielder told BT Sport.

Dunboyne GAA club St Peter's and Cox's family earlier today thanked Liverpool, Roma and the thousands who've sent messages of support for the Meathman.

"Liverpool are a good team".

In that one sentence, he was praising his players but also showcasing his own strengths as a manager.

"I don't know if this is the right moment to play against them", he added.

However, since qualifying for the final, Liverpool supporters were delivered some rather disappointing news. The good thing is that we have another game but we don't think about that at the moment. Los Blancos won five in a row between 1956 and 1960 and past year they become the first club to retain the title in the Champions League era.

Klopp said a top-four finish had been a goal for his side and he feels that would mark a successful campaign.

Liverpool perhaps come into the match with even higher morale than Chelsea after earning a spot in the Champions League final for the first time since 2007, despite losing 4-2 on Wednesday night away to Roma.

"Throughout my career, I have faced the best forward players in the world - many of them who are considered among the greatest ever. It was actually the main target we had at the start of the season", he said. "We don't have an influence on other teams so we don't think too much about it".

And Klopp is confident Liverpool's success this season will make them an attractive club to join.

But Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that the Germany worldwide will be available to feature in the May 26 showpiece against European champions Real Madrid.

If Conte's deposed champions win their remaining three fixtures they will, at worst, finish level on points with Jurgen Klopp's side, although Liverpool's far superior goal difference means just a point on Sunday or victory against Brighton on the final day of the season should suffice.

Despite failing behind to Paris St Germain at the Bernabeu, they won 5-2 on aggregate in the last 16 then overcame an almighty scare against Juventus, advancing thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's last-gasp penalty despite a 3-1 home loss.
