Perhaps attempting to take pressure off his side, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp called Real Madrid the favourites for tonight's clash.

He said: "If you look at the history of the club, the experience of the other team and the way Real Madrid celebrated comebacks then I would say from my point of view that Real Madrid is the favourite.

"But actually I want us to be on the same level and thinking we are at the same level.

“I want us to completely be ourselves in this game. If we are on the top of our game we are difficult to play, really difficult to play.

"That is my only concern at the moment, that we be ourselves and be really confident as well. But of course the confidence level of the Madrid players is incredibly high.

“It would mean a lot to win. The world we are living in means we get judged by the final result.
