Liverpool 11-10 to rule Europe for the sixth time

Liverpool are a general 11-10 to win the Champions League after progressing to the final in Kiev courtesy of a 7-6 semi-final aggregate success over Roma.

The Reds suffered a 4-2 defeat at Stadio Olimpico in Wednesday night's second leg but first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum meant they were always likely to hold on to their 5-2 advantage from Anfield to make their first major European final since 2007.

On that occasion, Liverpool lost out 2-1 to Milan in Athens. However, in May 2005, Rafa Benitez's Kop Kings had stunned the Rossoneri in Istanbul to win the European Cup for a fifth time.

Jurgen Klopp's men will face Real Madrid on Saturday May 26. The Spanish giants are 8-11 to win a third successive Champions League title.

Real Madrid are 6-5 to prevail in 90 minutes, as they did 4-1 in last year's final against Juventus. Liverpool to win on penalties, as they did in Istanbul in 2005 after coming back from 3-0 down at the break, is a best-priced 14-1.
