Liverpool survive Roma scare to reach Champions League final

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum celebrates his goal against Roma

Real Madrid were without Dani Carvajal against Bayern Munich and employed winger Lucas Vazquez as a right-back in his absence.

However, with Liverpool's top-four hopes resting on positive results against Chelsea and Brighton and Hove Albion in their last two league games of the season, Klopp is not thinking about facing Madrid just yet.

If the Reds go all the way and win, you'll practically be able to hear those 16,000 cheering all the way from Kiev. "That's how it is".

"The past week has been a very hard one for Sean, his family, his large circle of friends and his colleagues at St Peter's, as Sean remains in a critical condition", read a statement issued by club chairman Fergus McNulty.

With that in mind, Klopp has no intention of resting key players like former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah and Brazil forward Roberto Firmino this weekend.

But Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that the Germany global will be available to feature in the May 26 showpiece against European champions Real Madrid.

The Spain skipper says his team, which has reached its fourth Champions League final in five years, is on a mission.

Klopp admits it is important to be in the competition in order to help to sign priority transfer targets for next term.

"We never do it the easy way unfortunately", Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said. For sure we want to give satisfaction to our fans.

This "clasico" at Camp Nou will have minimal impact on the league, with Barca already crowned champions and Real's passing interest in pipping Atletico to second place diminished by their ambitions in Europe.

"The obvious reasons are there is a financial thing but we are strong enough for that competition and we will be next year strong enough", said Klopp.

"It's unbelievable to be in a Champions League final for the third time in a row and have the chance to win it for the fourth time in the last five years", Real midfielder Toni Kroos said on Tuesday.

"We would ask that you keep Sean, Martina, and Sean's family in your thoughts and prayers".

"Of course it is a big advantage for Chelsea not playing in the week".

"We are ready to defend our title for a second time", Sergio Ramos added.

"They are quite confident but we don't care for that, we are focused on our job", he said. It was a clinical display from Madrid as they were out-shot, out-possessed and for most of the two legs, out-played.

Chelsea vs Liverpool in English Premier League starts at 9 PM.
