IT'S being billed as the "revenge" final after Liverpool star Mohamed Salah said he has a "score to settle" with Real Madrid.
But how much prize money will be bagged by the winners of this year's Champions League final?
A Liverpool triumph would see the Anfield club bank £93m from the competition overall, according to the Mirror.
And while that is certainly not to be sniffed at, Real Madrid will collect a whopping £102m in prize money if they come out on top.
Even if they lose on Saturday Carlo Ancelotti's side will bank around £98m, which is £5m more than the figure Liverpool will earn if they lift the trophy
Champions League takings are impacted by a club's past performance in the tournament.
While Liverpool have reached the final in three out of the last four seasons, Real have won it entirely four times in the last 10 years.
All 32 clubs to reach the group stages receive a base payment of £13.1m, plus another payment bases on their coefficient.
Each group stage win was worth £2.4m, and a draw £784,000.
Qualifying for the knockouts banked another £8.1m, then £9m for reaching the quarters, and £10.5m for making the semi-finals.
The finalists then get £13.1m each, with another £3.8m for the winners.
So all in all a seventh crown would bag Liverpool just under £100m, while Real Madrid would break the £100m mark if they win.
However those earnings do not take into account any matchday or broadcast income, which would significantly boost the figures.
Liverpool also get 30 per cent of Uefa's £253m broadcasting pot for finishing second in the Prem table last season.
