Champions League

Liverpool legend makes bold statement about Liverpool trio facing Real Madrid

Real Madrid vs Liverpool is just 2 days away. Both sides are gearing up to make history. Liverpool will become the first English side to win 6 Champions Leagues while Real Madrid can become the first team in the history to win 3 consecutive Champions Leagues and continue their dominance at the top of Europe.

Klopp’s side have been the underdogs in the tournament but they have surprised a majority of teams including Manchester City who were knocked out of the Champions League by Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been in red hot form this season and the trio have scored an astonishing 29 goals between them in the Champions League this term.

Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp believes that Liverpool have what it takes to beat Real Madrid in the Final. In an interview to Omnisport (as reported by Spanish Website AS), the ex Anfield Star talked about Liverpool’s chances.

“If Liverpool blew Real Madrid away, it wouldn’t surprise me, it really wouldn’t.”

“Because of the strike force they’ve got and sometimes the way that Real Madrid defend, they’re an attacking defensive side. They don’t really look at the defensive side of the game.”

“It’s not just Mo Salah. I think it would be disrespectful to not talk about Mo Salah, who’s had an unbelievable season. If you look after Salah, Firmino will hurt you and it’s the same with Mane.”

“There are so many different options and I think for Liverpool to not miss [Philippe] Coutinho after selling him [to Barcelona] for so much money just shows how well the manager has done,” concluded Redknapp. (as reported by Spanish Website AS)
