"He said it wasn't much, but we'll see tomorrow, we'll do some tests to see the extend of the damage done to his ankle.

Liverpool's main man Mohamed Salah has the same number of goals this term but has played seven more games.

The last time Real lost a final in Europe was in 1981 when the Merseyside club emerged victorious by a 1-0 scoreline.
