Shortly before the final of the Champions League against Liverpool FC, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti comments on his team’s motivation. In particular, the past of the two teams plays an important role.

Revenge welcome: Liverpool FC and Real Madrid face off in this year’s Champions League final – a pairing with history. Real coach Carlo Ancelotti believes his team is “particularly motivated” looking ahead to 1981. Back then, the Spaniards lost 1-0 to the Reds in the final of the European Champion Clubs’ Cup (formerly known as the Champions League).

Many starting points: Ancelotti reacts with his words to Liverpool player Mohamed Salah, who in turn wants to take revenge for his team’s Champions League final defeat against Real four years ago. “We still have a score to settle,” Salah tweeted after Real was confirmed as an opponent.

Open end: Both teams have already won two trophies this season. Real have won the La Liga title and Spanish Super Cup by 13 points, while Liverpool have won the FA Cup and EFL Cup.
