Jurgen Klopp on the Champions league final pitch

“Usually when I say the pitch looks new that is good news,” Klopp said yesterday.

“This pitch is new since yesterday, which is not the best news. But it will be the same for both teams. I saw the refs with their session and the good news is the ball drops normal. You can see the lines where they put the pieces of the pitch [together]which is what we aren’t used to.

“That someone thought it was a good idea to bring the pitch the day before to the stadium is an interesting idea. But it did not kill my mood a per cent. I am really happy we are here, I would have played the game on petanque. ”

Early team news

Liverpool have been boosted by the returns of Fabinho and Thiago. There were fears that both players could miss the final due to respective muscular issues, however, the duo resumed full training this week.

The big selection dilemma for Jurgen Klopp, however, is whether Joel Matip or Ibrahima Konate partner Virgil van Dijk in defense.

Liverpool’s only absentee is Divock Origi.

Real are likely to have a full-strength squad available from their 26-man traveling party, with David Alaba coming back into contention having sat out their final La Liga game against Real Betis due to an adductor issue.
