Liverpool’s Brazilian striker, Roberto Firmino, believes that lifting the Champions League trophy against Real Madrid on May 26 in the final in Kiev would be something very special and unique, but he was cautious and said that they will have a "very competitive" rival in Real Madrid.
“We know there is an equally well-qualified team on the other side," said Firmino, according to Daily Star. "It will be a link sbo
great final. We know about Real Madrid; they are always winning titles in the Champions League, and in the Spanish league, too,” he added.
Firmino has established himself as one of Europe's elite strikers, with his tally of 10 Champions League goals only bettered by Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo."Real Madrid is a great team and is very tough to play against. I’ve never played [against them]; however, I’ve watched their games, and they’re very competitive. However, this is a final,” he said.
“This is a final and a one-off link sbo
game, a one-off moment. But they’ll also be up against, in Liverpool, a team and a club with a great pedigree. We are going to fight until the end,” Firmino continued. Liverpool will look to end their six-year trophy drought when they face 12-time European champions and current holders Real Madrid on May 26.
