REAL MADRID VS LIVERPOOL
| Saturday, May 26th |
Champions League Final | NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium
7:45PM GMT/2:45PM EST
What more can possibly be said at this point? We’re here. It’s time. We’ve devoured all of the pre-match tactical analysis and stats compilations. We’ve poured over possible starting formations and match-ups. We’ve been getting ready for this for two weeks now—and now it’s finally here. Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Reds’ first Champions League final since 2007. It will be a tough test, and probably an entertaining game for neutrals. For us, it will be nerve-wracking from start to finish. Klopp’s men have astonished the world by making it this far, and there’s only 90 minutes to go to (give or take extra time) get to the finish line. Enjoy this feeling right now. You’ve earned it. And hopefully even happier moments to come. The Red Machine marches on. Let’s do this.
