Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has no injury and suspension concerns ahead of this Champions League final game.
Zidane rested Keylor Navas and Karim Benzema in their last game of La Liga against Villarreal but likely to recall the duo back to lineup.
The boss is expected to start with a similar lineup as of semifinal as he eyes to win third European trophy in a row.
Liverpool will visit Kyiv with lot of injury concerns; Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Gomez all are out.
Duo midfielder Emre Can and James Milner are both back to training from their recent knocks. However, only the latter is expected to take a role in the starting eleven.
Adam Lallana is also back to full fitness and could add some depth to the squad on the final match day.
Jurgen Klopp will stick with the same lineup that trashed Roma in the semifinal earlier this month.
Real Madrid won both of their last two legs against Liverpool in Champions League, conceding no goal.
Liverpool have scored more than a goal in 9 of their last 10 games in Champions League.
Liverpool have scored 40 goals in Champions League this season, more than any other side.
Liverpool have lost only 1 game in Champions League this season.
Real Madrid 1 – 3 Liverpool
Definitely a tough and an entertaining game for both the clubs.
I will go with a Liverpool win with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane on the score sheet.
