Real Madrid could add a record-extending 14th Champions League title to its collection of European trophies if it could see off the challenge from Liverpool. Los Blancos’ road to the final came at the expense of other English opponents Chelsea and Manchester City, the Spanish champions will be seeking to add Liverpool to that list.
