On the other hand, Real Madrid has endured a rough start to the season especially in the domestic league having lost the title to bitter rivals Barcelona.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp earlier suggested that Salah needs to perform consistently for 15 more seasons at this level to match Ronaldo.

Mohamed Salah is a "great player" but remains far from the rarefied air of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, according to Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos.

As the statistics show, there is very little separating the two players going into final.

The 25-year-old has matched Real Madrid ace Ronaldo for goals in all competitions this season, finding the net 44 times in a memorable debut campaign at Anfield.

Ramos, however, insists Liverpool are a fine team beyond just the attacking trio, which would make a third successive Champions League triumph all the sweeter. "He can be in the top three best players in the world".

"My result is 3-2 for Madrid", he said. Carvajal missed most of the semi-final through injury but is back in the side and will be in for a tough time up against Salah. Both of them will no doubt be aware that the player that lifts the Champions League trophy tonight in Kiev will have put himself ahead in the race for the Ballon D'Or.

"When you're at this club you can not take your foot off the gas, least of all in this competition", Ronaldo said.

"To reach a final is not easy", Zidane reminded his critics.

He has also done portraits of KwaZulu-Natal premier Willies Mchunu and Order of Luthuli recipient Swaminathan Gounden. "If you like to compete and want to work hard you can achieve what we are doing".

'It was more unfortunate the way he fell'. "That was a big chance'".
