The 2021/22 Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid is a clash of rich European heritages, as the two giants seek to claim supremacy at the biggest stage of club football in Europe.
Football loving GOtv customers are set to get a first-hand experience of this crunch clash on their decoders via Pop-Up channel 38 dedicated to broadcasting the much-anticipated football tie as well as other Champions League content.

Both teams have won a combined 19 Champions League titles between them and they stand tall as the most successful team in their respective countries. Real Madrid tops the chart with 13 wins, while Liverpool is joint-third with 6 wins.
They also share history as one of the few teams to have successfully defended their European cup triumphs. Real Madrid famously won the first five editions of the old European cup competition between 1956-1960 and more recently won a three-peat between 2016-2018 under Zinedine Zidane.
Bob Paisely’s Liverpool won the European Cup in 1977 and successfully defended it the following season. The English team then proceeded to defeat Real Madrid at the 1981 edition in Paris, coincidentally, the same venue for this year’s edition.
But, ahead of this tie, recent history favours Real Madrid. Spanish teams have dominated English teams in European cup finals over the last 16 years, one of those include a tie between the two teams which ended in Madrid’s favour back in 2018.
As such, Jurgen Klopp’s men will need to draw lessons from that defeat and their 2019 triumph to outclass the Madridista. Klopp will be aiming to add another Champions League medal to his cabinet to remedy his initial disappointments at the 2013 and 2018 finals with Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool respectively.
On the other hand, Carlo Ancelotti is on the brink of clinching a record fourth Champions League medal and becoming the most successful manager in UEFA competitions. He boasts a cabinet that comprises 3 Champions League, 3 Super Cups, and 1 Intertoto Cup.
The Italian manager famously ended Los Blancos’ wait for La Decima in his first stint with the club back in 2014, he will be hoping to repeat that feat. He returned to the club last year after he abruptly ended his one-year stint with Everton, Liverpool’s bitter city rivals.
Without a doubt, both teams can stake a solid claim for the most coveted trophy in club football and they would go all the way to emerge the champions of Europe when the match kicks off on GOtv’s pop-up channel 38 by 8pm.
