The Reds were beaten 3-1 by Zinedine Zidane’s Real in the final in 2018, and get another shot at the most successful team in Europe on Saturday in Paris.

Liverpool attacker Mo Salah has already talked of Liverpool wanting revenge for that defeat, but Klopp has played down the idea.

“I don’t believe in revenge, I understand it, but I don’t think you have ever heard of revenge being a fantastic idea,” said Klopp.

“I understand what Mo said. He wants to put it right. I want to put it right. In Germany we say ‘you always meet twice in life’ that sounds like more of a threat than it is. It is that you should behave well in the first moment you meet, because (otherwise) if you meet again you will get a reaction. It is fine between me and us and Madrid.”
