The teams will meet Saturday in Kiev, Ukraine, in the 2018 UEFA Champions League final. Favored Real Madrid is vying to win European soccer’s elite competition for the third consecutive season and 13th time overall, while underdog Liverpool hopes to lift the European Cup for the first time since 2005 and sixth time in club history.

They also react to Unai Emery’s appointment as Arsenal’s new manager, with Marcus explaining how the Spanish tactician came to replace Arsene Wenger and predicting how his reign will play out.
