The heartache of the 2018 UEFA Champions League final seems to be fresh in the mind of Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, as he eyes Real Madrid’s scalp in this year’s final.

With the current UCL campaign reaching its end, only two teams remain with Liverpool and Madrid making it all the way to the final that will be played on the 28th of May in Paris.

For Reds, Salah and company needed to see off a spirited Villarreal outfit in the semi-final while Los Blancos managed to beat Manchester City in dramatic fashion, considering that the English club was one of the favourites to go all the way.

As six-time and 12-time winners of the tournament respectively, Liverpool and Madrid will now square off in a repeat of the exciting 2018 UCL final that took place in Kyiv.

While Madrid ran out as eventual 3-1 winners on the night, one of the biggest talking points about the encounter was that of Salah being replaced early on in the tie, following a rash challenge by Sergio Ramos.

The Egyptian was seen shedding a tear as he left the field, with Liverpool having to make do without their star man for the rest of the game.

Now though, it appears that the former Chelsea has not forgotten about the 2018 final as seen in one of his latest social media posts.

As he looks to plot revenge on the Spanish giants, Salah tweeted, “We have a score to settle,” while sharing images of their semi-final clash against the Yellow Submarine.
