Xabi Alonso has succeeded in the difficult challenge to remain a big piece of history for two different clubs. A bit with Liverpool, a bit with Real Madrid. He's conquered everyone's heart in both Spain and England and has won a lot with both clubs. Saturday's final will be special for him, as he said so to La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Is it my dream final? It sure is, it's a special game for me. I have a strong relationship with both clubs, I've spent 5 years with the two teams and I've won a Champions League two times. They are now facing each other for one more. I can see anything happen. Madrid and Liverpool have done great things this season and suffered to get there. Real Madrid? In these occasions Zidane's team gives its best, they get better and that's why I'm sure we'll see a great Real. They'll have to deal with the emotional aspect though. To win, Liverpool has to play an almost perfect game, Klopp knows how hard it can be to stop Madrid and he's an excellent strategy maker. The favorite still is, logically, Real. Zidane? I don't have words, if someone told me a coach could have won the Champions League three times in a row in two seasons and a half, I would have said it's impossible. He's done a huge work, people don't give him enough credits".
