Mohamed Salah to postpone Ramadan fasting for Champion League final

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has laughed off talk that both he and his Real Madrid counterpart, Zinedine Zidane, are tactically clueless ahead of Saturday's Champions League final.

A number of the players featured in the Europa League final defeat to Sevilla two years ago but the clash in Kiev is on a much bigger scale.

Liverpool will participate in their first Champions League final in over a decade on Saturday, despite Klopp having limited options available throughout parts of the 2017-18 season due to numerous injuries and the sale of Philippe Coutinho in January. Playing against Real Madrid the team who have been champions for the past two years running and who are used to these kinds of big games could be a handicap but they might see themselves as favourites while we will just be going out to play our game.

Marc Mayo: If this game is to unfold as the "you score five, we score six" affair that seems nearly inevitable, Madrid will need every bit of firepower they possess out on the pitch.

"I have been brought to hopefully get the best out of myself and the team, with the help of everyone else".

Egypt Independent reported that Sawiris expressed disagreement with calls for Salah to break his fast on the Liverpool-Real Madrid match day.

"If you want to compete with them, you have to win nearly all of your games".

My memories of the 1988 FA Cup final against Wimbledon are painful reminder of how things can go horribly wrong when you least expect it, with the sands of time only slightly dulling my pain after that terrible defeat.

She told the the BBC: "I think every now and then you get a footballing great who you respect and admire regardless of the team. I think it's more like that than to say: 'Oh, we won the Champions League, now we can win [the Premier League].' It's easy to say".

"It's not like this and we know it".

Ronaldo is looking to join an esteemed group of 10 players to win five European Cups by scoring in his fourth separate final.

"But very often in these games when it starts the nerves get the better of you and you start off not wanting to make mistakes".
