Champions League Finals

 By Amelia Lipcsei

With a plethora of shocking results and a myriad of matches, the Champions League finally comes to a close at the end of the month. On May 28th, Liverpool and Real Madrid are scheduled to face off in the Champions League final. Both teams have an incredible record, with Liverpool winning all five of their recent matches, and Real Madrid winning four of five. Although Liverpool are the clear favorites to win this year, injuries from two of their starting players, Virgil van Djik and Mohamed Salah, has left many fans concerned. However, Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, has high hopes that both players will be fit to play in the final. Real Madrid also suffered some unexpected injuries in the later stages, with David Alaba’s muscle injury causing the team some difficulties during the semi-finals. 

Airing at 12:00 pm, the final should be incredibly entertaining. Even though this is not the first time that Liverpool and Real Madrid have faced off in a final, with Real Madrid beating Liverpool 3-1 in 2018, it will be interesting to see how each team’s playing style unfolds during the match.
