Madrid, May 22 (IANS) Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio on Tuesday said he expects to face a difficult Champions League final against Liverpool.

The Spanish midfielder said Liverpool’s potential meant a third consecutive Champions League title for Real was far from assured, reports Efe.

“We’re raring to go, really excited to be in another final. We know this will not be a walkover,” Asensio said during a press conference ahead of the two teams’ clash on Saturday in Kiev, Ukraine.

“Liverpool have a brilliant dynamic, they’ve had a terrific season but we have to believe in ourselves,” he added.

The 22-year-old said his top memory from the current Champions League journey was when he got a key goal in Munich, which helped Real Madrid to enter the knockout tie.
