Saturday’s final will be broadcast by CBS (English) and TUDN (Spanish) in the United States, and streamed on Paramount Plus. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. Eastern but coverage begins at 1:30 p.m. Not in the United States? You can find your local viewing options — from Canal+ to Canal Dos to the wonderfully named Silknet and Wowow — on this list of UEFA’s television partners. The New York Times

Fabinho and Thiago were the only minor injury concerns for Liverpool, but each returned to training this week and both start against Real Madrid. Here’s how we line up for the #UCLfinal

Klopp’s attack of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Luis Diaz is as aggressive as he can get, and a sign that Liverpool is ready to trade punches, and goals, as needed. An early one (or two) could ease the pressure on a back line that never seems to get a day off.

At Real Madrid’s rally, which had more of a picnic vibe than the Liverpool concert, the club rolled out the Madrid legends Roberto Carlos and Iker Casillas, among others, as hype men:

Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti settled into his preferred lineup long ago, and he is not making any changes for the final. He was so certain, in fact, that he put it out more than two hours before kickoff.

The midfield of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro may be a bit older than they were when they started the 2018 final against Liverpool, but would anyone bet against them? Karim Benzema, who has played like the world’s best player in the Champions League knockout rounds, leads the attack, and Éder Militão and David Alaba once again anchor the defense.
