WhoScored Champions League Final Team Selection
Eder Militao 2+ tackles
Real Madrid’s defence are going to need to be on top form on Saturday to keep up to speed with Liverpool’s dynamic front three. Eder Militao has come on leaps and bounds this season and will be tasked with tracking the runs of the likes of Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Luiz Diaz as they constantly change positions. The Brazilian centre-back is averaging more than two tackles per game in the Champions League this season.
Casemiro to be carded
Tasked with limiting the supply into Liverpool’s front three is Casemiro. The Brazilian, who has already been booked in a Champions League final in his career, is more than happy to take one for the team if it stops a dangerous attack. He has 16 yellows across all competitions for Real Madrid this season.
Trent Alexander-Arnold 1+ shot from outside the box
Trent Alexander-Arnold has recorded shots in seven of his eight appearances in the Champions League this season and nine of the 10 he has managed have come from outside the box. Whether it’s from set-pieces or open play, the England international is not scared to chance his arm from distance.

Mo Salah 3+ shots
Mo Salah has already made it clear he is out for revenge on Real Madrid. He has a score to settle after his Champions League final against them in 2018 ended after 30 minutes. He warmed up for Saturday’s final by recording eight shots in 32 minutes off the bench against Wolves last weekend.
Karim Benzema to score
Karim Benzema is the top goalscorer in the competition this season with 15 and on a five-game scoring streak in the knock-out stage. With hat-tricks against Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain and a brace versus Manchester City, there’s no reason why he can’t add to his tally in Paris.
