Ryan Giggs is expecting a “fantastic” game when Liverpool FC take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final later this month.

The Reds are set to come up against the defending champions in Kiev in the showpiece event on 26 May as they look to end their season in the best possible fashion.

Liverpool FC have been earning huge amounts of praise for their strong performances this season under Jurgen Klopp, and the Reds have beaten the likes of Manchester City, FC Porto and AS Roma en route to the final.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, are aiming to make history by becoming the first team to win the Champions League for three seasons running.

And former Manchester United star Giggs believes that the stage is set for a fascinating showdown between Liverpool FC and Real Madrid in just under two weeks’ time.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, Wales manager Giggs said: “It’s a fantastic game. Two clubs that have got brilliant history of course in the European Cup, Champions League.

“It’s a fascinating game, a lot of quality on the pitch, especially in forward areas. So I’m looking forward to watching the game and seeing who comes out on top.”

Liverpool FC secured a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League last weekend to book their place in the Champions League for next season.

The Reds are still searching for their first trophy since Klopp’s appointment as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at Anfield back in October 2015.
