The German has managed in three previous finals, and his fourth appearance will take him joint-second with Marcello Lippi, Carlo Ancelotti and Miguel Munoz on the all-time list (one behind Real boss Carlo Ancelotti).
His other two appearances have come as Liverpool manager, starting with 2018’s 3-1 defeat to Real in Kyiv.
He was a back the following year, though, this time steering the Reds to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham (opens in new tab) at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.
Should Klopp guide Liverpool to their seventh European crown, he will become the fourth German* coach to win the competition twice – after Dettmar Cramer, Ottmar Hitzfeld and Jupp Heynckes.
