WATCH: Liverpool squad leave for Kiev

2018-05-25 08:46

Cape Town - Liverpool arrived at John Lennon Airport ahead of their Champions League final showdown against Real Madrid in Kiev on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 20:45 SA time.

Jurgen Klopp's side will be aiming to stop the much-fancied Spanish giants from winning the trophy for an unprecedented third year running.

"If we win the competition then the road to Kiev plus the final would be one of the most exceptional rides ever," Klopp told Liverpool's website.

"So far, it was just outstanding."

Klopp has lost his last five major finals as a coach, including the 2013 Champions League spectacle with Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Munich, and the 2016 Europa League with Liverpool against Sevilla.

The lethal Liverpool attack - inspired by the scintillating form of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah - will ensure that Saturday's showpiece event is a shoot-out between two attack-minded teams.
