Martin Keown is backing Real Madrid to become the first team to win the Champions League for three seasons running by beating Liverpool FC in Saturday’s final.

The Spanish giants will take on the Premier League outfit in Kiev in Saturday’s final as they bid to win the competition for the third straight year under Zinedine Zidane.

Liverpool FC have been earning lots of praise for their strong performances as they beat the likes of Manchester City, FC Porto and AS Roma on their way towards reaching the final.

The Reds are aiming to finish the campaign on a high by beating Zidane’s men to win their first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp.

However, former Arsenal star Keown feels that Real Madrid are the favourites to win on Saturday and is backing the Spanish side to win 2-1 against the Reds.

Speaking to the Daily Mail and asked for his prediction for the big game, Keown said: “Real Madrid to win 2-1.”

Liverpool FC head into the game after having booked their place in the Champions League for next season via a top four finish in the Premier League.

The Reds have been steadily improving since Klopp’s appointment as Brendan Rodgers’s successor at Anfield back in October 2015.
