Madrid have produced a series of spectacular comebacks against Paris Saint-German, Chelsea and Manchester City to reach tonight’s final, with Karim Benzema in devastating form. Victory for the Spanish giants would also see Carlo Ancelotti become the most successful manager in the tournament’s history, having already won it on three occasions. He has faced Liverpool on this stage many a time too, suffering heartbreak in Istanbul in 2005 before leading AC Milan to victory over the Reds two years later. “We have faced each other many times,” Ancelotti said. “The first time was in 1984, the final in Rome. I didn’t play because I was injured. Then, in 2005 and 2007, and of course, the rivalry was accentuated during the period I worked at Everton. They play at a very high level, with great physicality, but it’s a pleasure to play against them in

Liverpool and Real Madrid lock horns in the Champions League final once again tonight.
Forty-one years on from their inaugural battle in the beautiful city of Paris, Liverpool and Real Madrid reconvene just north of the French capital in Saint-Denis for the 2021-22 Champions League final on Saturday.
The Reds have a seventh title in Europe's primary competition in their sights this weekend, while continental veterans Los Blancos are aiming to get their hands on the trophy for a record-extending 14th time.
Jurgen Klopp’s side missed out on the title on a dramatic final day of the Premier League season, but Liverpool have already lifted the Carabao Cup and FA Cup this season and are looking to make it a hat-trick of silverware.
Liverpool will be desperate to avenge their defeat against Madrid in the 2018 final, when Mohamed Salah was forced off with injury before Gareth Bale scored a spectacular bicycle kick, but they may have to make do without Thiago Alcantara who picked up an Achilles problem last weekend.
Real Madrid have produced mesmerising comebacks against PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City to reach the final, owing largely to the brilliance of Karim Benzema, and have been able to focus all their concentration on Saturday night after wrapping up the La Liga title over three weeks ago.
While Man City were busy being rocked to the core by Aston Villa and Steven Gerrard - hoping to help his former club achieve something that he never did during his days in the red jersey - a plucky Wolverhampton Wanderers side would frustrate Klopp's side and their disgruntled supporters.
The double cup winners ultimately did what they needed to do with a 3-1 success, but the Citizens' astounding turnaround against Villa ensured that the Premier League crown would remain in the grip of Pep Guardiola and leave Liverpool to rue what could have been.
Ending such a promising campaign with only two cups in the cabinet would not prove to satiate the travelling Liverpool party, and they were forced to navigate a scare against European specialist Unai Emery and his giant-killing Villarreal side in the semi-finals, but no white flags were waved at La Ceramica.
Saturday's encounter will mark the 10th time that Liverpool have appeared in the final of the European Cup/Champions League, and some may argue that they have enjoyed a relatively favourable run to the showpiece event, but as Klopp will surely stress, there are no easy fixtures in this competition.
While Inter Milan did shut out the Reds in a 1-0 Anfield win that ended up proving inconsequential, Liverpool have scored at least twice in the rest of their Champions League fixtures this term - no mean feat amid the unforgiving schedule that Klopp always has plenty to say about.
The Reds win their seventh UCL crown, getting revenge for the 2018 final, this time with a competent display in goal and Salah scoring the winner on a penalty kick
