LeBron James predicts Champions League triumph for Liverpool
LeBron James has a stake in Liverpool, and the NBA great is in a confident mood ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Liverpool fan and part-owner LeBron James has predicted a seven-goal thriller success for the Reds in the Champions League final.
Jurgen Klopp’s side, who most recently won the competition in 2019, face Real Madrid in Paris on May 28.
They have already won two trophies this season – the EFL Cup and FA Cup – and could still be in line for an unprecedented quadruple by the time the final rolls around.

“4-3 US!!!! YNWA,” James responded.
Following Liverpool’s penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday, James tweeted “YESSIR!!!!!! WE ARE THE #EmiratesFACup WINNERS!!!!!!! @LFC.”
