We look at four reasons why Liverpool can surprise reigning champions Real Madrid in the 2021/2022 UEFA Champions League final in France. Real Madrid is aiming for their 14th UEFA Champions League title.
1. Best front three in football
Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Diogo Jota have scored 14 goals in the Champions League this season. Salah’s eight goals are undoubtedly the most meaningful, but they’ve all been outstanding since the season began. They score in a variety of ways, and it’s exciting to watch them shred any defense in their path.
Salah is the key man, and his ability to break down even the toughest defenses while also teaming up with Jota in the midfield is fantastic.
The competition for the best offense in the world is fierce, but no one can equal Liverpool’s production.
2. Most goals scored by a team
In the Champions League this season, Liverpool has 30 goals. This is two more goals than Real Madrid’s 28. Klopp’s team has scored 2.5 goals per game in their first 12 outings.
3. Better defense than Real Madrid
Liverpool has a better defense than Real Madrid, conceding only 13 goals in 12 games. Real Madrid has conceded 14 goals in 12 games. Furthermore, Liverpool has 47 total blocks, whereas Real Madrid has only 15.
In the Champions League, Liverpool has proved unstoppable as the season nears its conclusion.
In 12 Champions League matches so far this season, Liverpool has ten wins, one tie, and one defeat, while Real Madrid has eight wins, four losses, and no draws.
All of these factors, along with a slew of others, can instill confidence in Liverpool fans that their team will be playing in Paris on May 28 and winning the Champions League.
