Reports indicate that Gareth Bale could start for Real Madrid

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale celebrates scoring their third goal

Most clubs are settled with their goalkeeper at present, but there are a few possibilities.

"They can cause us problems, we know that".

Real Madrid have already lost to an English team in this season's Champions League, going down against Tottenham Hotspur in the group stage.

Previous form suggests they have a propensity to sign the World Cup's most outstanding performers and there's every chance Alisson is just that this summer.

That even one of the greatest players of all-time reacted with such wonder at Bale's brilliance on the touchline was testament to a strike worthy of winning any final.

'You should be judged on what you do in your domestic league when you're a manager and Real Madrid are so far behind Barcelona now it's ridiculous.

- Real Madrid started with the same XI as in the 2016-17 Champions League final; the first time a team has started with the same 11 players in different European Cup/Champions League finals (excluding replays).

The second half was just three minutes old when Isco cracked a shot off the bar and should have done better after a slip from the young Liverpool left back Alexander Arnold.

Salah's exit gave Real an immediate lift because they had been nervous and edgy up until that point in the game.

An early shoulder injury robbed Liverpool's Mohamed Salah the opportunity to bolster his case as a Ballon d'Or successor to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bale made the most of his 30 minutes on the pitch, however, scoring twice - including a stunning overhead kick two minutes after being introduced - to earn Los Blancos a 3-1 win against Liverpool in Kiev.

Six minutes into the second half, Karius's sloppy rollout had been seized on by Karim Benzema to put the Spanish side in front.

Liverpool have netted 40 goals in Europe this season, with Salah bagging 10 of those, while Mane and Firmino have both scored nine. Ronaldo powered a header straight at Karius who palmed the ball out to Benzema who tapped the ball into the net but turned to see the linesman with his flag up.

This time it was Bale who had grabbed all the headlines as Real and Zidane continued their continental dominance.

Liverpool were soon back on level terms though, when a corner was headed back across goal and Senegal striker Mane nipped in to beat Real Madrid keeper Kaylor Navas to the ball.
