Manchester City playmaker David Silva says the Champions League Final is a lottery, although suggests Liverpool will be expected to win.
Jurgen Klopp’s side face Mauricio Pochettino’s unexpected finalists in Madrid on June 1, desperate to avenge last year’s defeat to Real.
On that night in Kiev, fate transpired against Liverpool, with Mo Salah’s injury stopping us in our tracks before Loris Karius made two horrific errors to cost us the game.
This time, in feels different, with Liverpool’s 4-3 comeback win in the semi-finals against Barcelona hopefully the catalyst to propel us to glory.
Silva admits that winning the Champions League is actually harder than any of the three domestic trophies his side secured this term.
“In theory, Liverpool are the favourites after the season they’ve had but anything can happen in the game,” Silva told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.
