The Merseysiders have enjoyed some good fortune against the Dutch outfit in recent times under Jurgen Klopp, winning across both group stage meetings in 2020/21.

In a game that was rendered insignificant due to the horrific handling of the event by UEFA, French police and authorities on the day, as both sets of supporters from Liverpool and the Spanish capital were subjected to horrendous treatment.

Hopefully it will be a lesson well learned for the organisers ahead of the final in Istanbul – a familiar and cherished territory for the Anfield faithful following the historic Champions League final win in 2005.

Though performances so far have far from indicated that we’ll be capable of going all the way in the competition, we’d certainly expect Klopp’s men to dramatically improve come the group stages.

And what better motivation than another appearance at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium?
