Former Chelsea goalkeeper has backed Liverpool to win the Champions League against Real Madrid when they clash this month in Kiev.

Asmir Begovic is of the view that Real Madrid is the favourite going into the clash after they have gotten to the final in four times in the last five seasons.

Despite being a former Chelsea player, Begovic hopes Liverpool will come out on top against the Spanish giant.

Begovic also advised Liverpool that they are facing a Real Madrid side that has placed all their attention on winning the Champions League, after failing to defend the La Liga

 “It’s a heck of a Champions League final,”

“I mean you couldn’t wish for much more with two huge clubs going at it.

“Real Madrid is absolutely fantastic when they turn it on and they’ve been playing for the Champions League for the last few months now.

“That’s been their only care really so I’m sure they’ll be firing on all cylinders when the final comes around.

“For Liverpool, there are a couple of new experiences for some players.

“I would love the English team to win it.

“For myself living here in England and playing in England, I would love the English team to win it, so I’m hoping Liverpool can pull it off,” Begovic told talkSPORT.
