So here we are, just a matter of hours away from the Champions League final, and just like Jurgen Klopp at his press conference at the Wanda Metropolitano on Friday afternoon, our Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce and reporter Ian Doyle cut calm figures in this, your final Blood Red podcast before the real action gets under way. That wasn't the case a few hours earlier when James and his fellow UK journalists took on their Spanish counterparts in a media football match that did little for international relations. But whereas our intrepid press pack went down to a narrow defeat, confidence abound about Liverpool's chances of bringing the European Cup back to Anfield. James and Ian point to Klopp's performance in front of the cameras and the experience of Kiev as reasons for that, not to mention the little matter that Liverpool are just a better team than Tottenham Hotspur. Our boys also dismiss the thought that this can be treated like any other game, express their admiration for Dua Lipa, play down fears over Alisson and pay tribute to the growing force that is Fabinho. Also on the agenda is the key selection decisions that both managers must get right, while there is your usual line-up and score predictions. Enjoy - and we'll be back after the match with the Post-Game podcast. Hopefully celebrating number six.
