Lovren says Real Madrid should fear Liverpool

"We have to play football games to make that happen".

"We are deserved finalists 100 percent", said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp. We needed it only one time tonight.

"These fans just want this club to compete and they want to be proud of their team". If you put also this on me, I'm in trouble.

We've seen it with Torres, Suarez, Fowler, Rush and now Salah.

"It would be very hard to predict this type of season for Salah", Conte added. "You can not plan a Champions League final if you are not Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich", Klopp said.

After Roma's dramatic comeback against Barcelona in the last round, it wasn't surprising to hear that their were Liverpool fans anxious that they may face the same fate. Roma's defense looked out of sorts when Nainggolan misplaced a pass early on and Roberto Firmino set up Mane for an unchallenged goal - the first that Roma has conceded at home in this season's Champions League.

The crowd certainly seemed to believe a repeat result was possible and the noise levels increased as Liverpool were pushed back in the opening moments. And that's where superman Salah comes in.

Lovren says Real Madrid should fear Liverpool

"I didn't have my chance [at Chelsea], so I must leave".

They were far from their devastating attacking best, however, and a nervy defensive display saw them lose their first match in this season's competition, despite cruising in the first half having twice taken the lead. "Now we will go to Kiev which sounds insane but it's true".

Klopp welcomed how the challenge becomes tougher as Liverpool become more successful.

Real Madrid, chasing their third consecutive European crown, survived a nervy end to their game with Bayern Munich. "We came in as a qualifier and now we're in the final", Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said. Which ones does he rest?

Player of the Year Salah is rightly favourite at around 7/2 to strike first, but I'm hoping he'll be a bit exhausted after the Reds' European exploits and Giroud can get in there before him. While others might be feeling the toll of a long season and just need to be taken out of action a little to freshen up.

"People don't tell me in the street since then: 'Thank you for bringing us to the final.' We were in the Europa League final too". The Reds are Chelsea's opponents at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. "They are up against a very good team and it is a final I am looking forward to". For this reason, I think that to win the Champions League you must be more lucky.
