Watch Liverpool vs Real Madrid FREE: Live stream, TV channel, team news, kick-off time for Champions League final

LIVERPOOL are looking to complete a memorable treble when they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final TONIGHT.

Real fought back in stunning fashion to beat Man City and advance to the final in their semi-final, having beaten Chelsea in the quarters.


Liverpool have had somewhat of an easier run to the final, beating Inter Milan, Benfica and Villarreal en route to the Paris showpiece.

The Reds just missed out on winning the Premier League and the chance to win a quadruple last weekend as Man City made a miraculous comeback to beat Aston Villa in their final game.

Liverpool will be seeking revenge when they take on a Real side who beat them 3-1 in the 2018 final thanks to Gareth Bale's spectacular brace.

And that year was the last time Real won the European Cup, but they'll be gunning for glory this time around with Karim Benzema leading the line as their main man.

Virgil Van Dijk missing out on the final day of the season altogether caused concern around the camp, but he will be in the Reds XI this evening.

On the flipside, Real Madrid have very few injury concerns going into this match.

There could even be a return to the bench for Gareth Bale, who comes back from six weeks out injured but is unlikely to get the chance to repeat his masterclass against the Reds in the 2018 final.

Carlo Ancelotti's biggest decision could be whether to start with the magic of semi-final hero Rodrygo or the more cautious option of Federico Valverde.
