Liverpool are bidding to win the European title for a sixth time on Saturday night but they face a tough task against Champions League holders Real Madrid, who are aiming for a third successive victory and 13th overall. Although both teams are filled with match-winners, the focus will surely be on Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah. But Salah, too, has been nothing less than a talisman for the Reds this season.

"We have more pace all round and are smarter with our movement so I think, as a three, yes Firmino, Salah and Mane are better than Real Madrid's front three", he told Sky Sports.

As good as Salah is, Madrid will surely be the favourites to complete a Champions League hat-trick on Sunday.

Ronaldo has been in irresistable form for the defending champs this season.

Elsewhere in the Premier League, Muller's compatriot Leroy Sane helped guide Manchester City to a record breaking season where they claimed the Premier League title with an exceptional 100 points, with the Germany global winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

In their previous five meetings in the competition, Liverpool have prevailed three times and Real twice. Ronaldo backed them to get the job done: "My result is 3-2 for Madrid", he said.

However, despite Sane's achievements this season, Muller claims that Die Mannschaft don't posses a player capable of winning the Ballon d'Or, although went on to claim that he finds winning trophies with his team gives him more satisfaction.

"I still don't think we have realised the scale of what we are doing, but when all this is over we will". "We have already made history and we want to keep on doing it".

"They could be a bit blase maybe, but we also have to be aware they won't panic if they go 1-0 down due to their experience of getting the job done from hard positions".
