The European club season ends with a bang as heavyweights Liverpool and Real Madrid face off in the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League final.
Held at the 81,338-seat Stade de France, the final will feature a pair of teams who expect success in this competition every year. Real Madrid are, of course, the winningest side in the history of the competition, and they enter this season's final buoyed by a stunning performance in the semis in which they overcame a two-goal aggregate deficit to Manchester City in stoppage and extra time of the second leg.
Now they'll face the team that City pipped for the Premier League title. Liverpool enter the UCL final riding an emotional rollercoster after losing out of the domesic crown by a single point, putting an end to their quadruple hopes. However, a win here would still give the Reds a treble, and it would move them into a tie with Milan for second place on the all-time UCL winners chart.
