Real Madrid set up a rematch of the 2018 Champions League final against Liverpool, in which the La Liga side came out victorious.
Four years later, that final is still disappointing to Jurgen Klopp and his side. First Mo Sarah had to leave the game due to a tackle from Sergio Ramos and then errors by Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius cost them the trophy.
Mohamed Salah stated yesterday that his dream would be to face Madrid once again in the final saying:
“I want to play Madrid,” he told BT Sport after Liverpool sealed a 5-2 aggregate semifinal win over Villarreal in Spain on Tuesday.
“I have to be honest. City is a really tough team, we play against them a few times this season. But if you ask me personally I would prefer Madrid.”
Liverpool should be meeting Premier League rivals Manchester City in the final, but City are out after one of those historical European nights at the Santiago Bernabéu. City lead 1-0 on the ninth and 5-3 on aggregate as we went into added time in the game. City held Real Madrid without a shot in the 90 minutes but Real Madrid did what they did best, with Rodrigo scoring 2 goals within a minute to send it to extra time.
Manchester City then did what they do best, bottle it. Ruben Dias have away a penalty, which Karim Benzema scored, sending his side to Paris and in search of their 14th Champions League trophy.
Liverpool are competing for a historical quadruple, and will be win their third Champions League final in the last five years.
Write it down in your diaries. May 28th, Stade de France, Paris. Liverpool versus Real Madrid. Champions League heritage. Is revenge on the cards?
