Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he has only just re-watched last season’s Champions League final as Liverpool prepare to take on Real Madrid once more.
Liverpool and Real Madrid are two of the most successful clubs in European football history, and met in the Champions League final in Paris in last season’s showpiece, with the Spanish side winning 1-0 to claim a 14th crown.
It was the second time in five seasons that the pair had met in the final, with Real Madrid running out 3-1 winners in Kyiv in 2018.
The duo also met during the 2020/21 Champions League quarter-finals, with Real Madrid progressing to the semi’s with a 3-1 aggregate win.
Speaking ahead of Tuesday night’s clash at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp said he has only just rewatched last season’s final, describing it as ‘torture’.
“Real Madrid are one of the biggest clubs in the world. We played the final in Paris and I watched it back this weekend,” he told the media.
“I realised why I hadn’t before that. It was torture; we played a good game, we could have won it but they scored the decisive goal. You could see their experience, how little they lose confidence, they are there for their chance. That is what you can learn from them.
“We are different teams in different times. Lets see who goes through.”
