"He's fine. You have to know something, he lives for games like this", said Zinedine Zidane, who can become the first coach to win three consecutive Champions League titles.

Liverpool are attempting to win the European title for a sixth time tonight but they face a tough task against Champions League holders Real Madrid, who are aiming for a third successive victory and 13th overall. A dramatic quarter-final against Juventus finished 4-3 in their favour following a dramatic late penalty from Ronaldo, then edging past Bayern Munich in the semi-finals to seal their spot in the Champions League final.

These two teams haven't met in the Champions League Final since 1981.

The screens also confirmed both teams will play in their traditional home colours as Serbian referee Milorad Mazic takes charge of the proceedings.

Real Madrid, who play in Spain's La Liga, are led by Portuguese star Christiano Ronaldo in the attack.

"Right now I have a biological age of 23", the five-times world player of the year said in an interview with Spanish television program El Chiringuito broadcast on Wednesday.
