The second most important game of the day, but it's also a biggie.   AFAIK there are only four planes from Liverpool airport to Kiev, 600 seats in total for 19000 tickets which have been allocated to Liverpool,  a guy I work with has got tickets and his route to the stadium is insane. Flying to Moldova, picking a hire car up at the airport then driving 400 miles to Kiev before finding somewhere to kip in the car on the way back to Moldova.  Real Madrid have returned 2000 tickets because the city is so inaccessible and hotel rooms are pretty much non existent for the weekend of the final (seems that AirBnB have killed the hotel business there, then people with rooms to let have priced themselves out of the market).  Ridiculous logistics aside it could be a great game, I think you could make a case for Liverpool to blow Real Madrid away within 20 minutes or for Madrid to tear Liverpool a new one, either way I don't think it will be as dull as the FA Cup final was.

Hoping I am in the mood to watch this somewhere around Wembley after our game should be a cracker.  I am going for 3-3 aet and pens.  Liverpool to win which I don't mind as fed up of Real winning it every year.

the logistics are playing in to UEFAs hands, theres a few reports today saying it simply doesnt work in kiev so why dont they try moving it to the middle east or new york

FWIW the 2020 multiple cities idea (the ones where they picked the stadiums with the best coporate facilities and host the semis and final in world footballs golden goose) cam off the back of a shit euros in ukraine

its probably also worth noting that whilst it was no doubt easier due to the multiple other airports and shorter travel times but i bet flying in to and staying in cardiff last year was a bad experience too

All stats seem to suggest plenty of goals in this game and as I'll be at the minimum, slightly pissed, should be entertaining.

Hoping Madrid win 7-3

:D  I'm the same.

I'll definitely be finding somewhere to watch it (or whatever is left after our game).

But I don't anticipate remembering much of it :)

Me too, Ronaldo hat-trick would be nice.

Ref the logistics there was talk on the radio that Liverpool fans are getting hold of tickets from Real Madrid fans who can't get there so there will be scousers all over the ground. Certain trouble I think.

Think Real will win fairly comfortably but who knows. Like the FA Cup final it's hard to warm to either of these.

0-0 and someone to scrape a 1-0 win on penalties, as both teams and the football world in general will be in utter shock having just seen Villa triumph 85-0 at Wembley.

Salah to score a hat-trick and rightfully win the next Ballon d'Or for actually being the best performer in a season, thus ending the Messi/Ronaldo wankfest.

 

 

Ideally Salah scores every goal having nutmegged Sergio Ramos at least 10 times and the game ends with Ronaldo crying, but those would just be bonuses.

Ronaldo 437 games, 450 goals for Real.

Staggering.

Dodgy ones that the replay proves were incorrect.

Oh and 6 disallowed Liverpool goals for offside that were definitely onside :D
