The Champions League 2017/18 final game in Kiev will feature Real Madrid and Liverpool.  Who will win?  Bet on it! After months of play and some major upsets, this year's Champions League tournament has been whittled down to just two teams - Real Madrid and Liverpool.

Real Madrid, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, is certainly no stranger to the Champions League finals, and there can be no real surprise that they find themselves in the finals once again. Real Madrid has appeared in the finals four of the last five years and will be looking for their fourth title during that span.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has won the European Cup/Champions League a total of 5 times, with their most recent win coming in 2005. It should be noted that Liverpool has finished as the runner-up twice in their history, while Real Madrid has finished second a total of 3 times.

Real Madrid and Liverpool feature two of the best strikers in all of football in Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah.

Ronaldo has been his usual superlative self so far this season, as he has continued his dominance and will likely win yet another Ballon d'Or award.

Mohamed Salah, on the other hand, has really emerged as one of football's top players this season, and a Champions League title would be the icing on an exceptional season.
