Jurgen Klopp’s side overcame Villarreal 5-2 on aggregate in the semi-final to secure their spot for the final in Paris later this month.

They’ll meet either Real Madrid or Manchester City as they go head-to-head at the Santiago Bernabeu tonight.

City hold a 4-3 lead from the first leg at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool, of course, are alsi battling Pep Guardiola’s side for the Premier League title.

They’ve shared two 2-2 draws this season, while the Reds beat their modern-day rivals 3-2 in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley last month.

Madrid, meanwhile, defeated Klopp’s troops in the Champions League final five years ago.

And it’s the newly-crowned La Liga champions who Salah wants to face.

He told BT Sport: “I want to play Madrid. I have to be honest.

“City are a really tough team. We’ve played them a few times this season but if you ask me personally, I would prefer Madrid.

I want to play against them, hopefully win it.”

Liverpool beat Villarreal 3-2 in the second leg at Madrigal.

However, they had to battle from being having gone into half-time two goals behind before Fabinho, Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane marched the Reds into final.
