Former Brazil Legend Ronaldo has given his prediction for the Champions League Final in Kiev. Its just a day left before Liverpool n Real Madrid come face to face to battle it out for the biggest prize in club football. The Brazilian talked about the Champions League Final and also heaped praise on Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.
Salah has been instrumental in Liverpool reaching the Champions League Final and the Egyptian will be looking to cap off a memorable debut season with the Champions League trophy.
In an interview to Cope’s ‘El Partidazo,’ as reported by MARCA, Ronaldo revealed his huge praise for Mohamed Salah.
“With Liverpool, I love Salah, he’s an incredible player with a tremendous quality and I think he is very similar to Messi. I recently read him say that I was his inspiration and I was very excited and happy to see that,” said Ronaldo, via MARCA.
Ronaldo was asked about commenting on what starting XI Zidane will choose for the Final and the Brazilian said:
“I don’t care who plays in the starting XI. [Gareth] Bale appears to be in danger of missing out, but he played well at the end of the season and there are many options like Isco and [Marco] Asensio,” via MARCA.
Ronaldo was also asked to predict the Final Score for the Champions League Final. The Brazilian said:
“I think the result will be 3-2 to Madrid and, if they win the final, it will be an unprecedented event in the club’s history. There were doubts during the year, but I’m very optimistic about the chance to achieve something historic,” concluded Ronaldo, as per Spanish website MARCA.
Just over a day to go before the much anticipated Final gets underway in Kiev, Ukraine. We expect an amazing match as both teams and their attacking style of play promises a lot of goals.
