Liverpool will face Real Madrid at the Stade de France for the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League final, Sunday (29/05/2022) at 12:30 midnight Indian time.

This match itself was a repeat of the 2017/18 Champions League final which took place at NSK Olimpijs'kyj. In that match, Madrid was able to come out as champions after beating Liverpool with a score of 3-1. Karim Benzema scored three Madrid goals in the 51st minute and  Gareth Bale's brace in the 64th and 83rd minutes. Meanwhile, one Liverpool goal was scored by Sadio Mane in the 55th minute.

The defeat of Madrid in the final match was what fueled the revenge of the Liverpool bomber, namely Mohamed Salah. The reason, in that match Salah had to be pulled out in the 30th minute due to an injury after colliding with Sergio Ramos.

Liverpool's journey to the final round was fairly smooth and without any significant obstacles.

Liverpool qualified as winners of Group B with a perfect score of 18 points in the group phase match. After that, the Reds successively eliminated Inter Milan in the round of 16 with a 2-1 aggregate score, then eliminated Benfica in the quarter-finals with a 6-4 aggregate score, and then eliminated Villarreal in the semifinals with a 5-2 aggregate score.

On the other hand, Madrid actually had to struggle to be able to advance to this top party.

Madrid qualified as group D winners with a score of 15 points in the group phase. After that, Madrid made a comeback against Paris Saint Germain in the round of 16 with an aggregate score of 3-2. Then, Madrid eliminated Chelsea in the quarter-finals with a 5-4 aggregate score through extra time. And then, Madrid comeback against Manchester City in the semifinals with an aggregate score of 6-5 through extra time.

Ahead of this match, both teams have prepared themselves quite well.

Liverpool in the last match was able to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers with a score of 3-1 in the closing match of the Premier League this season while making them finish in the runner-up position of the English Premier League.

Meanwhile, Madrid, who had confirmed themselves as Spanish La Liga champions in their last match, could only draw 0-0 against Real Betis.
