Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that Real Madrid are going to have to be at their best if they want to defeat Liverpool FC in the Champions League final on Saturday.

The Spanish side are preparing to take on the Premier League outfit in Kiev on Saturday night as they aim to become the first team in history to win the Champions League for three seasons running.

Liverpool FC have been earning huge amounts of praise for their impressive performances this season, with Jurgen Klopp’s men having beaten the likes of Manchester City, AS Roma and FC Porto en route to the final of Europe’s elite club competition.

And Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo admits that the Blues will have to be at their very best if they want to deny Liverpool FC in Saturday’s final in Ukraine.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Ronaldo said: “They remind me of Madrid three or four years ago.

“Their three front players, they’re very quick… they are powerful in attack and I respect them.

“But Madrid are better. We have to play to our level, but we also have to respect the opposition.”

Liverpool FC have been preparing for the game after having secured a top four finish in the Premier League to book their spot in the Champions League for next season.

The Reds are likely to be linked with a host of players this summer as they bid to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.
