According to Paul Robinson, as Liverpool and Real Madrid will be playing the Champions League final, one Liverpool player will miss it.
This will be the ninth meeting between Liverpool and Real Madrid in the European Cup or the UEFA Champions League where Liverpool won the first three between 1981 and 2009. However, the Reds have not been able to win the last five games against the Spanish giants.
Moreover, Real Madrid and Liverpool will meet for the third time in the final, the most between two clubs in the European Cup or the Champions League history.
Also, Carlo Ancelotti will be looking forward to winning the Champions League and creating history as the first manager to win the Champions League for the fourth time.
The player that will miss according to Paul Robinson
According to the former English professional Paul Robinson, Joel Matip will miss the final match against Real Madrid in France.
Liverpool are about to play their biggest game of the season and most of the players who are the regular starters will play but there were questions regarding the other centre-back who will play alongside Virgil Van Dijk.
Neither Matip or Konate played well against Wolves at the weekend. But whoever plays alongside Van Dijk improves. He is a top-class player and a leader. It is not an issue that’s for sure. They could go with Matip or Konate. I think Jurgen Klopp will go for Konate though.Paul Robinson told the skysports
Ibrahima Konate scored against Benfica in both the legs which helped Liverpool to gain an early advantage and his height can create problems for the Los Blancos when the corner is been taken.
Finally, Vinicius Jr’s electric pace can create a problem for Trent Alexander-Arnold in the counter-attacks so it is most likely that Ibrahima Konate will be starting the game because he also has a good pace that can prevent such counter-attacks.
