◼️ The Portuguese star believes that the three forwards of Liverpool, Salah, Mané, and Firmino, have the same offensive power of the Madrid forward three years ago.
Cristiano Ronaldo said Liverpool’s attack reminded him of Real Madrid three or four years ago. Less than four days before the final in Kiev, the goalscorer of the reigning Champions League revealed, moreover, that he would have liked to face Manchester United.
Zinedine Zidane has not given any clues about the selection of his team after Gareth Bale’s five-goal streak in an equal number of appearances. The Welsh international could have the opportunity to be a starter alongside Cristiano and Karim Benzema in the attack.
Speaking of that possibility, the Portuguese forward said that the ‘BBC‘ of a few years ago is similar to the exciting attack of Liverpool, which is led by the brilliant Mohamed Salah with strong support from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino.
“The finals are always special occasions, I would have preferred Manchester United, but Liverpool deserves respect, we’re not going to have it easy, they deserve to be in the final, they remind me of Madrid three or four years ago,” he said.
“Their three front players are very quick, they are powerful in attack and I respect them, but Madrid is better, we have to play at our level, but we also have to respect the opponent,” he added.
Real Madrid is a favorite to win in Kiev, but Cristiano said that Zinedine Zidane’s men can not afford to be complacent. “You always have to be motivated, you can not relax in this club, particularly in this competition,” he said.
“The Champions League has been synonymous with Real Madrid since [Paco] Gento and [Alfredo] Di Stefano, we feel like players and fans too, I want to do well on Saturday, to help the team, play well and hopefully score goals. But the most important thing is to win and go down in history. “
