Real Madrid and Manchester City will face off tonight for a spot in the Champions League final, where they will face Liverpool in Paris at the end of the month.
After an incredible second-half comeback victory over Villarreal on Tuesday night, Liverpool qualified for their third Champions League final in five seasons. This means Jurgen Klopp and his team can unwind tonight while waiting to find out who they’ll face in the showpiece event in Paris.
Following last week’s spectacular match at the Etihad, Real Madrid and Manchester City will meet in their second leg semi-final, with the scoreline precariously poised at 4-3. Many consider City to be the favorites to advance, but with victories over PSG and holders Chelsea already under their belts, Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid should not be overlooked.
Klopp was asked if he would prefer one opponent over the other in the final after his team’s victory last night, but he was hesitant in his response. “I’ll keep an eye on it!” “he stated “Whoever it is, he or she richly deserves it. It’s not that I prefer one above the other; both will be enormous. Whoever gets the result will be deserving of it, and then we’ll face off.
