Having already been crowned kings of Europe in 2016 and 2017, Zinedine Zidane’s holders will become the first team in the modern era to win three on the trot if they can stop Jürgen Klopp’s attacking force.
Zidane has no fresh injury concerns. Cristiano Ronaldo had been sidelined for a couple of weeks after hurting his ankle against Barcelona at the start of the month but the Portuguese star is expected to be fully fit and in the line-up to face Liverpool.
Our unique algorithm has predicted the Real Madrid side it believes will start the game.
Football Whispers uses data to predict teams’ starting XIs, taking into account injuries, suspensions, the statistical likelihood of a player being selected, the competition the match is in, players’ previous performances and the opponent’s style.
