Some of the world’s most exciting offensive players will collide in Kiev on Sunday. While the prowess of Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah has been well-documented this season, Saturday’s matchup could be determined by the tactics these managers employ to slow down the threats. Real Madrid has been excellent at shutting down their opponents so far in this tournament, but the speed and precision of Salah cannot be ignored. Salah will likely be running on the same side as Marcelo, one of the best fullbacks in the world and also a key part of Madrid’s attacking movement. If Madrid are going to use Marcelo on offense, they must be careful to not overextend against speedy Liverpool.
Klopp has spearheaded this surprise run for Liverpool, who defeated Roma 7-6 in the semifinal, but Klopp has lost his last five finals, three of them with Borussia Dortmund. To bring the title back to England he’ll need more magic from Mo, the Premier League Golden Boot winner that carried Liverpool to this point.
The X-factor in this final could be Gareth Bale. The Welsh superstar has returned to form, and his speed could be a major turning point in the later stages. Because Liverpool play a high press, the fatigue factor in the second half will be massive. It’s imperative that Liverpool score or keep the game neutral by halftime, lest they chase the game in the second half. Bale could appear as a sub, and use his speed to shift the balance in Madrid’s favor.
