Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking ahead to their Champions League tie with Real Madrid, however, they could be in for some bad news when they meet in Kiev.
The Reds have had a solid tournament in the build-up to the final, having dispatched the likes of Manchester City and AS Roma to reach the showpiece in Ukraine. Jurgen Klopp’s side has shocked many with their attacking displays, with his players knowing how to find the back of the net.
However, it is his team’s defensive work that leaves a number of the punters in the bar concerned and with the news that Cristiano Ronaldo is available will be causing some nightmares.
Zinedine Zidane confirmed that his superstar will be “120% ready”, as per the Liverpool Echo and that coupled with the return of Isco and Dani Carvajal could give the Reds a difficult night in Kiev.
The Liverpool fans in the Tavern will still fancy their side’s chances when they face the La Liga giants, although the expectation that they will have a full squad to choose from will be a concern.
Klopp’s side will have a number of injuries ruling out some of their best players, with the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ruled out, whilst Adam Lallana and Emre Can remain doubtful, giving their side it all to do in Ukraine.
