Is it too presumptuous, when Liverpool are playing with this kind of attacking conviction, to believe they have the riches to prevent Real Madrid, the most successful team in the history of the European Cup final, from registering a 13th success? Who knows?!

However, expect goals in Kiev today on May 26: Real Madrid vs. Liverpool could achieve the unthinkable and end up as the highest-scoring final in the history of the Champions League.

Highest-scoring final in the history

Liverpool held off a spirited Roma fightback to reach the Champions League final 7-6 on aggregate despite losing 4-2 in a hectic semi-final second-leg in Rome.

And on the other side, Karim Benzema scored twice as Real Madrid drew 2-2 with Bayern Munich to seal its place in a fourth Champions League final in five years with a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Real’s 7-3 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in 1960 has always appeared to be one of those marks that would never be erased from the record books. But would it really be a surprise if Madrid and Liverpool shared 10 or more goals in the Ukrainian capital?

Liverpool have scored 40 goals in this season’s competition, while the holders have hit 30 themselves. What’s more, the top four scorers in the competition represent the two clubs: Cristiano Ronaldo leads the way with 15, with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino on 10 each.

One further back is Sadio Mane, whose opening goal on Wednesday paved the way for Liverpool to seal a 7-6 semifinal aggregate victory over Roma.

At the other end, unconvincing defending has seen Real concede 12 this season and Liverpool nine; the floodgates, it seems, are open at both ends of the pitch when they play, so be prepared for a white-knuckle ride in the Olympiyskiy Stadium.
