Real Madrid ran out 3-1 winners against Liverpool in their last meeting in the 2018 final but the result was overshadowed by Sergio Ramos' challenge on Mohamed Salah, causing an injury to the Egyptian forward who ended up leaving the field in tears.

"It was for us a strange night but it was long ago and I cannot get that anger back so I don't even try. What I try is to prepare my team for tomorrow to show how good we are as a football team in a strange season and a difficult season."We are not on a revenge tour here. Life is like this. I don't believe too much in revenge, but it would be nice to get through."
