The 2021/22 Champions League final will be today, May 28 at 11:30 at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis (Paris) between Real Madrid and Liverpool.
Liverpool reached the final after eliminating Villarreal in the semi-finals, while Real Madrid do so by knocking out Manchester City.
Built to host the 1998 World Cup, it will be the third final to be played at the Stade de France.
The first was in 2000 between Valencia and Real Madrid, which was won by Real Madrid. The other was in 2006 when Barcelona beat Arsenal. It also hosted the final, among other matches, of Euro 2016.
The match was due to be played at the Gazprom Arena in St. Petersburg, but Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has prompted UEFA to change the venue.
It will be the third final between the two teams. The first was in 1981 in Paris at the Parc des Princes. Liverpool won 1-0. The last was in 2018, in Kyiv, where Los Blancos won 3-1.
The Champions League final will be played on Saturday, May 28 at 21:00 at the Stade de France in Paris.
The Stade de France, with a capacity of more than 80,000 spectators, was inaugurated with a friendly match between France and Spain ahead of the 1998 World Cup.
Liverpool have been European champions six times – more than any other English team. That is as many titles as Bayern, with Milan and Real Madrid the only clubs to have won more.
