- Klopp says Real Madrid will settle in to final against them quickly
- He however stated that his side pose a unique threat against Real
- The Champions League final will be played on Saturday, May, 26 in Kiev
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits Real Madrid are likely start the Champions League final with more confidence.
Los Blancos approach the game in Kiev having won three of the previous four Champions League finals with two consecutive victories.
While the Reds most recent European final was a defeat to Sevilla in the Europa League two years ago.
But the German coach is optimistic his side pose a unique threat to the reigning European champions.
"I'm pretty sure that in the second before the game Real Madrid will be more confident than we are, but that's not a problem because the game doesn't end in that second, it only starts," said Klopp.
"We have had now two weeks to prepare that game and everything is clear. You see Real Madrid playing against different teams and you think, 'Wow - they are really strong'. But, they've never played us and that's part of the truth."
He added: "Spirit is our biggest strength, 100 per cent, the spirit which we created during the season."
Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohammed Salah will be the stars to watch in the classic final at the Stadion NSK Olimpiyskiy, Kyiv when both sides aim for glory.
A win for either side will put Ronaldo or Salah in good contention for Ballon d'Or at the end of the year.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Liverpool striker Mosalah has said it is honourable to him to be compared with Ronaldo and Messi.
