WATCH: Aston Villa boss Gerrard tips Liverpool to beat Real Madrid

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is backing former club Liverpool to be comfortable winners against Real Madrid in tonight's Champions League final.

Gerrard has confidently predicted that Jurgen Klopp's side will beat Los Blancos 2-0 in Paris, posting a video message on the club's official Twitter account.

Gerrard, who lifted the Champions League title with Liverpool in 2005, was filming from inside the Stade the France where he was in attendance for Liverpool's final training session before the final.

"You can feel the atmosphere building. I'd like to wish everyone at Liverpool the best of luck, and I hope they get the outcome that everyone wants," Gerrard said.

"I'm getting excited for the game and the fans are building up nicely outside the stadium.

"Hopefully it'll be a fantastic game and I predict a 2-0 Liverpool win."
