| Champions League final: Xabi Alonso reveals how Liverpool can beat Real Madrid
| sbobet asia LIVERPOOL players need to deal with the “emotional side” of the Champions League final if they are to have any chance of beating Real Madrid. Liverpool take on Real Madrid in Kiev on Saturday looking to lift the Champions League trophy for the first time since 2005.
But former midfielder Alonso, who played for both Liverpool and Real Madrid, has urged the Reds not to get lost in the moment. The 36-year-old believes Jurgen Klopp’s side need to find the right balance between excitement and motivation to take down Real, who are favourites to win the competition three years on the bounce.
"They have to prepare for the game very well because Real Madrid have all the experience," Alonso told AFP. "For all the Liverpool players it will be their first Champions League final. “They have to deal with this emotional side which is almost as important as the football side.
"If they can get the right balance between the excitement and the motivation, that will be the right way to approach this final." Alonso played for Liverpool for five years before leaving for Madrid in a £30m deal back in 2009. sbobet asia
He made 210 appearances for the Reds and helped the Anfield outfit to four honours, including the 2004/05 Champions League. The former Spain international went on to lift the trophy again with Real in the 2013/14 campaign. sbobet asia
