Liverpool were the last year's runner-ups in the Champions League. They are the second most successful club in the English League football with 18 trophies. They are also the most successful English club in European championship (UCL). These all this happened a few decades ago as they won their last league title in 1989-90.

Their last UCL trophy was won about 13 years ago in 2005 defeating Milan 3-0 in Istanbul. They need something for their fans to cheer for this time around and also to forget the controversial night of 25 May against Madrid at Kiev.

In the past two years under the mind of a good tactician Jurgen Klopp, the Reds have turned it around playing inspiring and attacking game.

Liverpool's power lies in its deadly attack with the trio of Mo Salah, Mane and Firmino. They have scored a combined 28 goals in UCL 2017-18 which is more than some teams like PSG, Real Madrid, Bayern, and City who scored 27, 26, 23 and 20 respectively. Defensively also the club is more stable and Van Dijk has been in sensational form.

Individually, Salah has been in incredible form for Liverpool. Also, the club is leading the league with four points. Liverpool will look to win the Champions League having missed the last one by a whisker.
