Salah says Liverpool ‘have a score to settle’ as Real Madrid set up Champions League final rematch

Mohamed Salah says Liverpool ‘have a score to settle’ with Real Madrid after the Spanish side set up a Champions League final rematch with the Reds.

Real Madrid booked their place in the final after a dramatic semi-final tie with Manchester City, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side scoring twice in the final minutes to send the clash into extra-time.

 

Karim Benzema then scored the decisive goal from the penalty spot in extra-time to send the Spaniards into the final, where they will face Liverpool in Paris after the Reds beat Villarreal in the last four.

The final is a rematch of the 2018 showpiece in which Real Madrid won 3-1 in Kyiv, as Gareth Bale came off the bench to score twice.

Salah’s memories of that final are of disappointment, with the Egyptian international having been substituted in the first half after sustaining a shoulder injury following a challenge from Sergio Ramos.

Real Madrid also eliminated Liverpool at the quarter-final stage of last season’s competition.

Salah had told BT Sport that his preference was a rematch with Real Madrid in the aftermath of Liverpool’s 3-2 win at Villarreal on Tuesday night and has since taken to social media to say that the Reds ‘have a score to settle’ with Real.

The 2022 final will be the third time that the teams have met in a European Cup/Champions League final, with each team having won one.

Carlo Ancelotti will also be in charge of the opposing team against Liverpool in a Champions League final for the third time, having been the manager of AC Milan for their 2005 and 2007 finals against the Reds.
