Liverpool vs Real Madrid: How to watch Champions League final for free



Liverpool and Real Madrid will descend on the Stade de France on Saturday to compete in the Champions League final.

It is a vengeful evening for the Reds as they lost to Real in the 2018 final. Jurgen Klopp’s side are the slim favourites heading into the clash but fans won’t be discounting Real, who fought back with a late equaliser and then extra time winner against Manchester City in the semi-finals.

Rafael Benitez, who managed both clubs, has issued a warning to the Reds ahead of the final due to Real’s fighting spirit. He said: “At Real Madrid it’s more about having quality players who can make the difference on their own – Carlo Ancelotti can organise the team. It’s giving them the confidence to play as well as they can.

“Ancelotti then has the ability – through experience – to make the right decisions. And that’s what it is – experience. His knowledge has given him an ability to make the right decisions on more occasions.”

But how can fans watch and when is kick-off? Here’s all you need to know.
