When is the Champions League final?

The Champions League final takes place on Saturday 28th May in Paris between Liverpool and Real Madrid. This year's final was meant to be held in St Petersburg, but UEFA withdrew the hosting rights following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Liverpool have already secured a domestic double, beating Chelsea on penalties in both the EFL Cup and FA Cup finals, but missed out on the Premier League title following a dramatic final day.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, eased to the La Liga title - finishing 13 points ahead of second placed Barcelona - and head to Paris bidding for an incredible 14th Champions League title, and their fifth in just the last nine seasons.

Champions League Final Odds:

Despite Real Madrid's storied Champions League history, Liverpool go into the game as clear favourites (best price 19/17 through oddschecker). The Reds will be looking to avenge a 3-1 defeat to Saturday's opponents in the 2017/18 final - a match most memorable for a pair of huge mistakes by Loris Karius and a shoulder injury for Mohamed Salah after an altercation with Sergio Ramos.

Carlo Ancelotti's side have been priced at a general 5/2 but remain available at 13/5. They made the final after a series of stunning knockout round comebacks, crowned by a late Rodrygo double in the semi-final second leg against Manchester City at the Bernabeu, which saw them take a place in European club football's showpiece event at the expense of the Premier League title winners.

Champions League Final Team News:

Liverpool will be sweating on the fitness of Thiago Alcantara, who picked up an unspecificed injury in their final day win over Wolves, while fellow midfielder Fabinho is facing a race against time to be fit with a hamstring issue. Virgil Van Dijk was an unused substitute against Wolves but is expected to start in Paris.

The main talking point for Real Madrid is the fitness of David Alaba, who sat out the goalless draw with Real Betis on Friday. He is expected to replace Nacho at centre back when Ancelotti names his team on Saturday.
