On May 28th, the Champions League final will be held in Paris. It will feature a matchup between Liverpool and Real Madrid. The Titans of the Premier League have already taken home the trophy six separate times. Los Blancos will be looking to win the championship for the 14th time in their history.
The victory against Villarreal, which Jurgen Klopp and his teammates earned, sent them through to the next round. The champions of La Liga, on the other hand, staged a stunning comeback against Manchester City to secure a victory on an aggregate of 6-5 and go to the championship match.
What did Ronaldinho say?
Ronaldinho has voiced his respect for both of the teams who will be competing in the upcoming matchup between the two European super weights. This matchup is sure to be a mouth-watering one. Despite this, the Brazilian, who played a prominent role for Barcelona in the past, believes that Liverpool will prevail in Paris. He was quoted as saying on the French radio network RMC:
“Two outstanding squads. They have a lot of guys that are quite excellent. I hope everything works out for them. Real Madrid is an excellent club. But even though I am a huge fan of Barcelona, I have to say that I support Liverpool.”
Even though they still have two games to play in La Liga before the Champions League final, Carlo Ancelotti’s team has already secured the league championship. They have accumulated 84 points from 36 games. This places them in the first position on the table. This gives them a 12-point advantage over Barcelona, who are now in second place.
The Reds, on the other hand, are still in contention for the Premier League title, even though they are now three points behind the leaders of the table, Manchester City, with two matches remaining to be played. They will also play Chelsea in the FA Cup final. It will take place today at Wembley Stadium.
