Carlo Ancelotti has already won the Spanish league with the Blancos, and now he wants to win his second Champions League title at the helm of Real Madrid.

In England, the first meeting was won by Klopp with Liverpool, by the minimum difference, in a match corresponding to the FA Cup. In the Premier League, they faced each other in mid-2020, with a goalless draw and another two-goal draw in October of the same year.

The most recent duel between Klopp and Ancelotti, as coaches, dates back to the beginning of 2021. On that occasion, Everton beat Liverpool 0-2 at Anfield, with the presence of Colombian James Rodriguez.
