Champions League Final line-ups

Harry Kane and Harry Winks both start despite injury concerns, as Tottenham Hotspur face Mohamed Salah’s Liverpool in the Champions League Final.

It kicks off at Atletico Madrid’s new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

There will be a minute’s silence before kick-off following this morning’s tragic death of Jose Antonio Reyes in a car accident, aged just 35.

Spurs are seeking their first ever Champions League victory, having completed last-gasp comebacks to qualify, knocking Ajax out in a dramatic semi-final.

Coach Mauricio Pochettino, who has been linked with the Juventus bench, chooses to start Kane and Winks, who have barely featured in weeks due to injuries.

Lucas Moura, who scored a hat-trick in Amsterdam, is left on the bench.

Kieran Trippier, who was a target for Napoli and is now suggested as a Juventus option, starts at right-back.

Liverpool were in the Final last season, losing to Real Madrid, and hope to end Jurgen Klopp’s infamous run of Final defeats.

Former Roma players Salah and Alisson Becker start, with Roberto Firmino and Saido Mane in attack.

Midfielder Naby Keita is out of action, but Firmino shakes off his injury to start.
