Liverpool will take on Real Madrid in the 2022 Champions League final.

The Reds saw off Villarreal at the semi-final stage, with a brief scare in the second leg of that contest at El Madrigal overcome as Jurgen Klopp’s side prevailed 5-2 on aggregate.

The Blancos appeared to be down and out heading into the closing stages of their heavyweight last-four showdown with Manchester City, but staged the most dramatic of late turnarounds.

Rodrygo netted twice in stoppage-time time to send an enthralling contest to extra-time, before talismanic frontman Karim Benzema converted from the penalty spot to send Carlo Ancelotti’s side through.

Liverpool are looking for European title number seven, while record-setting Real after pursuing a 14th triumph, and their latest meeting will deliver a repeat of the finals from 1981 and 2018 – with the two sides boasting one win apiece.

How can I buy tickets for the 2022 Champions League final?

Of the 75,000 tickets up for grabs, UEFA has announced that 52,000 will be made available to supporters and the general public.

The two teams that reach the final will each receive an allocation of 20,000, with 12,000 tickets being offered for sale to fans across the globe.

Each of the finalists will give away 10,000 tickets free of charge to followers of their club, with European football’s governing body eager to “reward the lifeblood of the game for their loyal support during the pandemic”.

Those sides competing for the grandest of continental prizes will organise their own ticket sale process, including the handing out of free passes.

All remaining tickets will be split between the local organising structure, UEFA and national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters, and the official hospitality programme.

Tickets available through UEFA’s official portal will not be sold on a first come, first served basis, with a ballot being put in place that needs to be registered for when applying.

Those fortunate enough to be picked out of the draw, along with supporters of the two clubs involved, will have four price categories available to them, with the cheapest seats available for €70 while the most expensive will go for €690.

Where will the 2022 Champions League final be played?

Stade de France in Paris, France will host the 2022 Champions League final.

The 2022 decider was originally intended to be held at the Gazprom Arena in St Petersburg.

The Russian city was, however, stripped of hosting rights in the wake of Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade neighbouring Ukraine – with sanctions quickly put in place by UEFA and FIFA.

With an alternative venue required, the decision was made to hand the final over to Stade de France in Paris.

That stadium, which has a capacity of 80,698, has previously staged the Champions League final on two occasions – Real Madrid’s 3-0 victory over Valencia in 2000 and Barcelona’s 2-1 triumph over 10-man Arsenal in 2006.
