6 days left to the Champions League final of this edition. One of the most relevant matches of the season for both clubs. However, the current situation of both teams is different.
Real Madrid: the Spanish club is probably the favorite to raise the trophy. Madrid is the club with more Champions League of the history (13). Also, they have a really good % of finals won.
This competition is really special for this group of players and this entity. Carlo Ancelotti´s team is on a good shape this last weeks. They won Liga Santander with some matches left and they have been able to rest and to prepare the game with more patient and more focused than Liverpool.
The decisive performance of some players of Madrid like Benzema, Vinicius or Luka Modric will be relevant on this final. From the last game, the Spanish team has two more days of rest than Liverpool, a fact that could be relevant too. The only doubt for them is if David Alaba could be on the start team the Saturday. The ex-player of Bayern has a muscle soreness and it is probably that Ancelotti is not going to risk. However, on the Monday training Alaba appeared with the group. So we will see if he has time to recover 100%.
The journey of Real Madrid to reach this final has been amazing. They eliminated some of the best teams of Europe like City, PSG or Chelsea. In addition, the way that they had to pass had been incredible too. All of the qualifying rounds of Carlo´s guys it is been epic so far. If they win this trophy, people will remember as one of the hardest UCL of the club.
Liverpool: the team of Jurgen Klopp is with less spirits and worst shape than Real Madrid. They have recently lose the Premier League tittle. Manchester City of Pep Guardiola won his game against Aston Villa with an incredible comeback in less than 10 minute (3-2). On the match that Liverpool played against Wolves, they were champion during the most part of the time.
Unfortunately, they could not get it. Lose a regular league that you are fighting during months is really hard. This fact could affect to Liverpool players facing the final against Real Madrid. Also, the fact that Real Madrid has this comeback spirit or DNA could put pressure to “reds”.
For sure will be a great match between two teams that are playing really good football this season. The duels between star players like Salah or Benzema will be also very interesting. The French and Egyptian strikers are fighting for the Golden Ball and this tittle could be decisive for them.
