Liverpool v Real Madrid Prediction – Form (All Competitions)
Liverpool continue their unbeaten run into their last five contests across all competitions, just falling short of a season quadruple when they finished second to Manchester City in the Premier League. Real Madrid, meanwhile, have been defeated once in the same range of games, but have had one win and two draws since, in addition to reclaiming the LaLiga title trophy. Let’s now take a closer look at this year’s UCL finalists.
Liverpool v Real Madrid Prediction – Preview
Liverpool progressed to the UCL final after ending Villarreal’s Cinderella run in the competition, seeing them off 5-2 on aggregate in a two-legged tie. The Reds went ahead 2-0 in the first leg at Anfield courtesy of a Sadio Mane goal and a Pervis Estupiñan own goal. In the second leg at El Madrigal, the Yellow Submarine were able to level before halftime, thanks to netters from Boulaye Dia and Francis Coquelin. But after the break, Liverpool came back stronger, as Mane, Fabinho and Luis Diaz all scored within 12 minutes to secure their first UCL final appearance since 2019 (they beat Tottenham 2-0). Manager Jurgen Klopp, who is looking to get revenge for the Reds’ final loss in 2018, considered Los Blancos as “massive favourites because of their experience”. Will this compliment, along with their preparations four years in the making, work in their favour and lead them to their 8th European Cup/UCL title?
Should Liverpool win this final, they will be level with AC Milan (7) in European Cups/UCL titles, and behind only Real Madrid (13) for most overall wins.
Jurgen Klopp has faced Real Madrid more times than any other team in the UCL (9), but was only victorious in three of these matches (D2 L4). Among other sides he faced at least three times in the tournament, against no other team does Klopp have a lower win percentage (33%).
Real Madrid C.F.
Real Madrid booked their ticket to the Stade de France by defeating heavy favourites Manchester City 6-5 in a close semi-final tie. The Cityzens had a narrow lead after the first leg at the Etihad Stadium (4-3), and even opened the scoring in the next leg at the Bernabeu when Riyad Mahrez netted at the 73rd minute. However, Los Blancos showed that they were still one of the best in Europe, with Rodrygo producing a brace at the last minute of regulation to level the aggregate score, and Karim Benzema converting a penalty in extra time to complete the comeback? Manager Carlo Ancelotti, who previously coached Liverpool’s rival club Everton, joked that he didn’t want his current team to “stage another comeback win in the final, hoping that it will be the Reds trying to come back”. Can the Spanish side heed Ancelotti’s words and take control of the match from the get-go to win a record-breaking 14th Cup?
After losing the first three encounters with Liverpool between 1981 and 2009 in the European Cup/UCL, Real Madrid have gone undefeated against the Reds in their last 5 meetings (W4 D1).
A win for Los Blancos will take them up to 14 European Cups/UCL titles, which would be twice as many as any other side (7, AC Milan). Real Madrid have won each of the last 7 times they were in the final, with their last defeat being to Liverpool in 1981 (which was also played in Paris)>

Liverpool v Real Madrid Prediction – Final Thoughts
This rematch of the 2017/18 UCL final may have one of the best storylines yet. Liverpool have come close to a historic season quadruple only to fall to Man City in the domestic league. Nevertheless, a treble with the UCL title to complete it would be the perfect consolation for Mohamed Salah and company. Real Madrid, on the other hand, would like another UCL trophy to add to their LaLiga title this season, and their comeback wins in the competition with Benzema have been the stuff of legend. However, Los Blancos may have finally met their match in revenge-hungry Liverpool, who will look to dominate from the start and hold on to the lead barring a late challenge from Madrid. Thus, the Reds are our overwhelming pick to lift the cup this year, their 7th European Cup/UCL title overall. Without further ado, here are our predictions for the UCL final.
