Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp previewed the latest encounter with Real Madrid ,he said,”It is different and not different at the same time because on Sunday it was harder, but just because of the script, the story, of the matchday. If City would have been 3-0 up after 12 minutes then it [would be] a completely normal situation which you could expect. But, with being 2-0 down, the typical drama we are kind of involved [in], and us obviously struggling to score the second goal, that made it then directly after the game slightly harder. Since then, it is all the same. We met this morning again, we are all in a good mood, life is like this: if you are healthy, which the boys obviously are, life gives you opportunities again and again. In this case, it is a Champions League final, so we see that and nobody feels the pain from Sunday anymore. We are really just looking forward to this game against an incredibly strong opponent, the most experienced opponent you can probably get in this competition. We are really looking forward to it.”

Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool’s performance in the current season.

“It would be, without the Champions League final, a great season. With the Champions League, winning the Champions League would be a fantastic season. It’s as easy as that. There are still levels. That’s absolutely fine, we don’t think because we won two competitions now and were close in a third competition that we wouldn’t care about that. That is, of course, not the case. You never know how often you will reach a Champions League final, so you better use the few opportunities you get. For us, it is now really special, the third time in the last five years. That is really special with this group.

We obviously had all downs and ups in our own Champions League history. In the last five years, we were there three times, I don’t know exactly the number but Real Madrid in the last 10 years probably won it five times, or at least four times, so that makes it really special. A lot of these players were always involved in these kind of games, so it will be a great game. I really think the world will be red or white on this matchday and that’s exactly how it should be. It is historically two teams who were always strong in this competition and now in the present as well, which is a good sign – competing with this kind of calibre is the best thing you can do. Obviously we are not going there just to be part of it, that’s clear. To be 100 per cent honest, I can’t wait to go there and not because I think, ‘It’s Real Madrid, let’s kick them [out]’ or whatever – not at all. I know how difficult it will be. It is just having the chance to go again for it is really special,” Jurgen Klopp added.
