Liverpool will have the upper hand over Real Madrid when they meet in the Champions League final because Marcelo is terrified of Mohamed Salah.

That is according to Egypt legend Mohamed Aboutrika who watched Salah go toe-to-toe with Marcelo in the Olympics in Rio.

Salah has been virtually unstoppable this season in front of goal and currently has 44 goals in 51 appearances.

Liverpool head into the final in Kiev as the underdogs, but Aboutrika believes Salahs prowess could give the Reds the edge.

Liverpool have a big chance to win the Champions League against Real Madrid, he told beIN Sports MENA.
