Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino says his team can beat Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26 in Kiev.

The Brazilian forward also confessed his love of former Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho.

On Real Madrid:

We know about Real Madrid. They are always winning titles in the Champions League and in the Spanish league too. I've never played against them, but I've watched their games and they're very competitive. However, this is a final; a one-off game, a one-off moment. They'll also be up against Liverpool – a team and a club with a great pedigree. We are going to fight until the end.

On Ronaldinho:

I started out at youth level as a holding midfielder. Later, I played as a [more attacking] central midfielder. I always modeled myself on Ronaldinho. He was one of my favourites who I followed a lot – his magic, made us want to imitate him and his football. Is my goal celebration a tribute to him? Yes, of course. I like him a lot.
