The fans painted the town red and white through the course of the day and Kiev was split into Liverpool and Madrid as it geared up for the final of arguably the biggest club competition in the world. There was a slight bomb scare in one of the subways but that turned out to be nothing more than a false alarm. After all the frolicking, the fans and the players have made their way to the stadium and we are only minutes away from the match. Follow live commentary of the Champions League final here.
Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool will be hoping to get another match-winning performance from the English Premier League Golden Boot winner this season, Mohamed Salah, who has scored 43 goals for the club in all competitions this year in 46 appearances. He has been the man in form for Liverpool and will pose the major threat to Real Madrid's shaky defence. Real centre backs, Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane, will need to be cautious against the speed, agility and accuracy of Salah, who has become a star player in European football. Ramos cannot afford to get an early booking, as he can expect himself be put to task by the Egyptian.
