Keane Backs Ronaldo To Help Madrid Edge Liverpool In UCL Final

Keane Backs Ronaldo To Help Madrid Edge Liverpool In UCL Final

Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes his former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, can decide Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool.

Ronaldo is looking to lift the famous trophy for the fifth time in his career and also to land Madrid’s third straight UCL title.

The Portuguese skipper has scored 15 times in 12 matches in this season’s campaign.

And Keane who played with Ronaldo from 2003 to 2005 at United, thinks the Spanish side will be too strong for the Reds.

“Who do I think will win it? I think Real will win it,” Keane was quoted by dailystar.co.uk  after Ireland’s training session ahead of Monday’s game in France.

“Why? Ronaldo. And there are some good support acts too. But I wouldn’t begrudge Liverpool.

“I think Liverpool are playing some good stuff but in my opinion, Real would probably just edge it because of Ronaldo.”

In his 11 past meetings against Liverpool, Ronaldo has only scored three times and has been on the wining side seven times, with three defeats and one draw.
