20:50 A musical performance percedes kick-off.

19:00A minute's silence will be held for Jose Antonio Reyes before the Champions League final after the former Arsenal, Real Madrid and Spain forward was killed in a car crash on Saturday. Reyes was 35.

18:00The traditional pre-match team photograph before the Champions League final will feature the entire squads of the two sides for the first time and not just the starting lineups, UEFA said.

17:00In terms of European pedigree, Liverpool are clearly ahead as they prepare for a ninth appearance in the final of this competition. Their last win was the memorable come-from-behind victory over AC Milan in Istanbul in 2005.

15:30 Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp is looking to put right a dismal personal record of six straight defeats in finals when his side take on Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s Champions League showdown on Saturday but the German has dismissed suggestions he is unlucky.

14:30 Tottenham coach Pochettino faces some tough decisions with striker Harry Kane back to fitness after seven weeks out and his replacement, Lucas Moura, having scored a hat-trick in the semi-final win against Ajax Amsterdam.

13:30 And while scepticism has greeted the perfection of Manchester City's star-studded squad in England, approval has also followed Liverpool and Tottenham's nurturing of youngsters.

13:00 Klopp and Pochettino have been singled-out as two of Europe's best coaches after crafting teams that reflect their personalities -- Liverpool thrilling and fearless, Spurs brave and unrelenting.

12:15 Combined, it has been 18 years - seven for Liverpool, 11 for Tottenham - since either lifted a trophy, despite huge strides made in recent years under the much-praised Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino.

11:30 Among the rewards for the Champions League winners on Saturday will be silverware, status and history but the greatest prize awaiting Liverpool or Tottenham might be an end to the agonising wait.


Stay tuned as match is due to start at 21:00 Cairo time (GMT+2)
