Steven Gerrard insists that Liverpool have a "really good chance" against Real Madrid in the Champions League final despite many pundits describing the Reds as underdogs. "Above all the first half, the second half we had better movement".

Wissan Ben Yedder opened the scoring for Sevilla, who doubled their lead before the break through Miguel Layun on the stroke of halftime.

Klopp will be looking to call on the devastating exploits of his formidable attacking trident in Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, who have collectively scored 89 goals between them in all competitions. Borja Mayoral clawed back a goal for Real Madrid in the 87th minute and Ramos partially made up for his earlier gaffes by converting a penalty in stoppage time.

They climbed two points above Getafe into seventh place, the final Europa League qualification spot, with two games left of the campaign.

In the last minute of injury-time, Theo Hernandez was judged to have been pushed off-the-ball in the Sevilla box - up step Ramos, again. I have to take advantage of them and score goals.

Among other players rested by Zidane on Wednesday night were Luka Modric, Keylor Navas, Marcelo, Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane.

"I think we go in with every confidence and belief that we can get the job done".

"We cannot be happy with all our results in La Liga, but we can be happy with how we have played through the season".

Real Madrid have since turned their attention to Saturday's match against Celta, the last game this season at the Bernabéu.

Madrid sit third in LaLiga and face an uphill battle to finish second, as they trail Atletico Madrid by three points with two games remaining.
