Isco has anticipated a brilliant Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool in Kiev and concedes that he can’t wait for the match.
Liverpool have defied the odds to make it all the way to the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, where they return up against back-to-back champs Madrid in barely seven days.
Los Blancos midfielder Isco, a starter in nine of his side’s matches amid their most recent run to the fina, has reverberated the contemplations of partner Luka Modric by demanding that the Reds can’t be underestimated.
“It is going to be a very beautiful final,” he told reporters. “It is the most important tournament at club level and Real Madrid are the kings of Europe and we have the opportunity to claim it again after a season where we have not done well in the league and cup.
“It would be a good way to finish the season. It is true that at the beginning they were not among the favourites, but Liverpool have shown they deserve to be in the final.
“They have a great coach and strong players who make the difference in the attack. We are in the final for another year and it is very important to continue at this high level. Both the players and the fans are very excited.”
Madrid have won three of their past five encounters against Liverpool, in spite of the fact that the Reds’ two triumphs have come in the last two meetings.
