The Reds go up against Real Madrid in Kiev tonight hoping to win and secure their sixth European Cup.
Somehow, Rusev has muscled into a little part of the pre-match discussion after giving his controversial opinion on the challenge Liverpool pose.
He’s a well-known Madrid supporter and sounds very confident about their chances of winning:

He said: “It’s going to be the easiest game of our whole season.
“Liverpool aren’t supposed to be there and they know they’re not supposed to be there.
“They’re just like ‘eh, we’re lucky and we can have second place, we’re okay with that. Madrid will win three in a row and that’s fantastic.
“How do you go against a team like that and think you can beat them? No you cannot.”
Somehow we don’t think he’ll get a positive reception when WWE is next in Liverpool.
Despite Rusev writing them off, and Liverpool being underdogs, Jurgen Klopp’s men have been very impressive in the Champions League this season and can’t be written off going into tonight’s game – even if Madrid have won back-to-back trophies.
