Liverpool’s Salah relishing Real showdown


Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah says the Reds have a “score to settle” with Real Madrid after the Spanish side set up a repeat of their 2018 Champions League final.

Salah left the field in tears in the final four years ago following a heavy fall under a challenge by Sergio Ramos, with Real going on to clinch the title with a 3-1 victory.

“We have a score to settle,” Salah posted on social media after Real eliminated City 6-5 on aggregate on Wednesday.

Liverpool claimed their place in the final with a 5-2 win over two legs against Villarreal on Tuesday, with Salah saying he was eager to face Real again.

“We lost in the final against them, so I want to play against them and hopefully win it from them as well.”

Liverpool, who trail City by a point in the Premier League, host Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
