Madrid not feeling like favourites in final - Zidane

Champions League Final: Liverpool will defeat Real Madrid, says astrologer Greenstone Lobo

UEFA may have accidentally revealed Jurgen Klopp and Zinedine Zidane's starting XIs and formations before the Champions League final.

Many in football have had their say on who will win the final - some believe Liverpool's exciting attacking style will be too much for an ageing Real Madrid side to cope with, including former Red Terry McDermott.

On the press box monitors in the Olimpiyskiy Stadium the list of starting line-ups, in formation, alongside substitutes were broadcast on Friday night.

Milner returns to the side after missing the Premier League finale through injury, while Can returns to the bench and could play for the final time in Liverpool colours.

Zidane has won the tournament twice, with the Spanish side on both occasions.

"Experience is important. I'm pretty sure that in the seconds before the game Real will be more confident than we are, but that's not important because the game doesn't end in that moment, it only starts", said Klopp, who lost the 2013 final with Borussia Dortmund.

"Comparing players with Ronaldo and Messi is something you can't do", he said.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane tore Manchester City to shreds in the quarterfinals, as Liverpool progressed 5-1 winners on aggregate and the trio's exhilarating pace will be a threat for Real Madrid's defense.

"Zidane is one of the best five players of all time".

He added: "I think most of the players will be a bit nervous before the game, that is normal but in the game shoot, strike, cross, make headers, bicycle kicks if you want".

He became the first player ever to score in all six matches in a Champions League group stage in December and with further strikes against Paris St Germain and Juventus in the knockout rounds he set yet another record in the competition by scoring in 10 consecutive games in the same season. "Mo has had a good start but we will see what happens in the next few years". "The club has in its DNA to go for the big things".

But the Frenchman said: "People can say what they like, but we are not favourites, nor are Liverpool".
