  • Liverpool, Real Madrid set to clash in Champions League title game

As the second half got under way, Real Madrid came close to opening the score when a shot by Isco hit the woodwork at the 48th minute.

Klopp's Borussia Dortmund side lost 2-1 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League final at Wembley in 2013 before Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to Sevilla in the Europa League showpiece in 2016. They were unsettled and imprecise with their passes and it allowed Liverpool to have the better of play in the first 15 minutes.

Jordan Henderson has spoken of his admiration for Liverpool supporters, acknowledging the part the fans have played in the Reds reaching the Champions League final.

Asked what he thought of Ronaldo's postgame comments, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane told Spanish TV: "We do not think about that, just in what we are doing".

"I've had an awesome season in the Champions League", said Ronaldo, who has scored a record 120 goals in the competition overall.

Liverpool and Real Madrid are set to go face-to-face in Kiev on Saturday night to aim of becoming kings of Europe.

Klopp is yet to win a Champions League crown, although victory in Kiev would see Liverpool claim their sixth in the club's history.

Neither team has any players suspended for the match, but Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopps will be missing three players due to injury: midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain; and defenders Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.

Salah left the Olimpiyskiy Stadium with his left shoulder in a sling having been forced out of the final in the 30th minute following a challenge by Sergio Ramos. Peter Rudbaek, speaking on behalf of the UEFA technical observers, said: "The observers chose Bale due to his game-changing display off the bench and his outstanding acrobatic goal to put his team ahead".
