Liverpool vs Real Madrid Team Lineups, Start Time, TV Channels, and Online Broadcast Channels

UEFA Champions League Final 2022 is here. Liverpool will face Real Madrid tonight. These two clubs are fighting for the Champions League title, when the sun shines brightest. This is European football as it should be.

Both teams have had to go through very different experiences on the way to this Final. Real Madrid defeated all odds in a year that was meant to be a transitional season. They knocked out Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City through thrilling comebacks fuelled by the magic of the Santiago Bernabeu.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have been a contender all season, fighting for the Premier League title with Manchester City. Their path to the Champions League was much easier, as they had to face Benfica, Inter Milan, and Villarreal in order to secure their place in the Final.

Although it is safe to say that Liverpool are favorites to win Real Madrid, Ancelotti’s men know what it feels like to be underdogs, at least for this season.

Match: Liverpool vs Real Madrid
Date: May 28, 2022
Stadium: Stade de France, Saint-Denis (France)
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Kickoff time: 21:00 (UTC/GMT+2, local time)

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Team Lineups

Liverpool’s attention is on Thiago Alcantara. The Spaniard has been injured in the final Premier League match of the season and will now be taking a late fitness test. Thiago seemed certain to be out of the team, but Klopp gave hope by revealing that the prognosis was “surprisingly positive”

A nightmare scenario could have played out during the Wembley win over Chelsea earlier in the month when Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Mohamed Alah were both injured. Van Dijk dispelled any fears that he would not be available to fight with Benzema and told fans, “I’m fine. Absolutely fine.”

Salah was able to take a rest against Wolves and scored his 23rd Premier League goal. Divock Origi was the hero of their 2019 victory, but he hasn’t had the same luck and will not be able to enjoy a legend bookend to his Kop career due to injury.

Klopp will need to make a decision about the makeup of his famed front three. Salah and Sadio are the obvious starters. Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, and Luis Diaz will be competing for the last spot. Mane has shown to be more than capable centrally, which would allow dangerous Diaz to begin from the beginning and keep the Spaniards at the back.

Real Madrid Predicted Lineups: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Valverde, Vinicius, Benzema.

Liverpool Predicted Lineups: Allison, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Mane, Salah, Diaz.
