Winning the Champions League is the dream of every player and everyone will give their 100% to achieve it. Liverpool front three are in red hot form and have scored most goals in one season of Champions League. Looking at Liverpool Jurgen Klopp do not have many headaches for selecting XI, but Zidane has an absolute mess to get the perfect XI as he has all players fit and ready for the final for which Real Madrid Manager said I’m Fu****d up. Real Madrid famous BBC has just started twice this season and Zidane have to think very carefully to select his front line along with Ronaldo. Zinedine Zidane will have some job to choose three out of his six attacking option with Cristiano Ronaldo in already in starting XI.
Jurgen Klopp has done some wonders for Liverpool and has made them and sheer attacking force whereas Real Madrid have not been so reliable in attack compared to Liverpool, while the history and records speak in favour of Real Madrid but Liverpool seems to have won the battle on the papers looking them this season.
