Boss: Reaching the Champions League final is a sign

Adjust Comment Print

Andy Robertson has established himself as a cult-hero since signing for Liverpool from Hull City last summer, on a journey that has taken him from Queens Park, the Scottish League One side, to the Champions League final with the Reds.

That was the first goal Roma had conceded at home in the competition this season, but they were only behind for six minutes thanks to a calamitous own goal.

It is the third time Klopp has guided his team to a major final since he took charge less than three years ago, though having lost the previous two he immediately warned that "they don't hang silver medals at Melwood". "We could have done better in this game but we've made it through to the final", Henderson told BT Sport.

The five-times European champions, who will face holders Real Madrid in the May 26 final, suffered a nerve-shredding second half as the Italians pinned them back and scored twice late on through Radja Nainggolan.

McDermott said: "I expect us to win [the Champions League final]".

"This could be a good opportunity for us", added Conte.

Strong Winds Prompt Special Weather Statement
Strong winds with gusts up to 50 miles per hour are expected to develop mid-morning Friday and persist into the early evening. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. "We look great considering the weather we had over the past few days".

Real are no longer the all-powerful outfit that overcame Atletico Madrid and Juventus in 2016 and 2017 finals.

"I knew it was going to be a tough game because I played here for two years". He told BT Sport: "Dzeko and I didn't realise Alexander-Arnold handled the ball so it can happen that the referee didn't see it".

"I think 80 per cent of the team of Real Madrid played all these finals".

Liverpool booked their spot in the competition's final after beating the Serie A side 7-6 on aggregate. There was lots of space, but then our last line was too deep and you can not play like this. That's the pity, that's the game.

"Throughout my career, I have faced the best forward players in the world - many of them who are considered among the greatest ever". Real Madrid have dominated this tournament in the last couple of years, but sometimes the underdogs are very unsafe and we'll back ourselves. "We have to do it three more times and then we can be part of the Champions League again next season and we can be a good opponent in the final".

"For both teams it would have been insane had we played extra time".
