Even Liverpool's opponents in the final, serial Champions League winners Real Madrid, have been surprised by the Reds' performance in the competition this season.

Gary Neville has pleaded with former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo to ensure Manchester United supporters don't endure the "season from hell", by beating Liverpool in the Champions League final. We are Liverpool, on the way to becoming a really good team, and performing at such a high level is very cool.

Roberto Firmino has stressed that Liverpool will "fight until the end" in their Champions League final meeting with Real Madrid.

Many pundits expected the Reds to fall by the wayside when they met Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

The three words Jürgen Klopp uses to summarise Liverpool's journey from a tricky play-off last August to the threshold of Champions League glory.

"Because of how we did it", Klopp told UEFA.

Payet was forced off the pitch after half an hour through injury and his side were soundly beaten 3-0 by Atletico Madrid.

"We know there is an equally well-qualified team on the other side".

The Real Madrid squad took part in a publicity event organized by club sponsors Movistar in the capital this afternoon. To summarise, it's been a insane ride.

Wales star Gareth Bale will be looking to lift a fourth Champions League trophy next week and Giggs, his worldwide manager, hopes he succeeds to get one over Liverpool.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson added that the choice of staging the parade the day after the final itself was a club decision, one which they also took back in 2005.

The legendary shot-stopper has won dozens of trophies at domestic and worldwide level but only Champions League trophy eludes him.

"That's why. We didn't put a special value on that".
