Sawiris to fast on UEFA Champions League final to support Mo Salah

Frank Lampard has insisted that Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo are completely different ahead of Liverpool FC's clash against Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday evening. Facing one of Europe's most successful clubs will be the biggest test for Liverpool and Mohammed Salah this season.

Bob Bradley will be more than an admirer as he watches Egypt play in the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation next month.

Madrid also suffered an injury blow minutes after Salah's departure as Dani Carvajal also left the field in tears after pulling up with a muscle injury to make way for Nacho.

"It's reminiscent to the scenes we saw in the European Championship final when Ronaldo had to leave the field for Portugal".

But both Salah and Ronaldo stand locked on 44 goals for the season in all competitions heading into the final.

"Not really. It's completely different", Ronaldo said when asked whether he and Salah had much in common as converted wingers who score in torrents.

"Cristiano knows that a player can have hard moments".

"If they win the final it will be an unprecedented event in their history".

The Reds lost home and away to los Blancos in the Champions League group stage in 2014.

However, as Muller and Owen have alluded to, the silverware a player wins-particularly the Champions League-has become increasingly important in deciding the voting for the Ballon d'Or, seemingly more so than how well the player actually played.

Nevertheless, Liverpool's hopes of winning a sixth European Cup depend to a large degree on Salah. I think he now feels, and rightly so, that it is a case of him versus Ronaldo. "We will see what happens".
