Revealed: Liverpool and Real Madrid teams 'leaked' ahead of Champions League final

Real Madrid and Liverpool will battle in the Champions League final.

UEFA may have accidentally revealed Jurgen Klopp and Zinedine Zidane’s starting XIs and formations before the Champions League final.

Liverpool and Real Madrid are set to go face-to-face in Kiev on Saturday night to aim of becoming kings of Europe.

Klopp and Zidane will be keeping their plans close to their chest – but Europe’s governing body might have let their plans slip early.

On the press box monitors in the Olimpiyskiy Stadium the list of starting line-ups, in formation, alongside substitutes were broadcast on Friday night.

They showed Klopp sticking with the same side which lost to Roma in the second leg of their semi-final – playing in the familiar 4-3-3 formation which has been a hit this season.

James Milner returns to the team after missing out on the final Premier League game of the season with a muscle problem.

Emre Can, who has been laid off since March 17, has made a remarkable comeback but will only be placed on the bench for what could be his last Reds appearance.

The screens also confirmed both teams will play in their traditional home colours as Serbian referee Milorad Mazic takes charge of the proceedings.
