Choose your color -- red or white. The bars and stands around Paris' Stade de France, the venue for Saturday's Champions League final, have certainly nailed their colors to the mast.

Walk past some and you could hear Liverpool's famous anthem, 'You'll Never Walk Alone,' blaring from outdoor speakers. 

Thursday evening in the French capital had been somewhat quiet; certainly it would have been hard to guess than European football's showpiece event, moved from St. Petersburg follow Russia's invasion of Ukraine, would be taking place on Saturday.

Come Friday morning, however, it was a completely different story. Hundreds -- if not more -- fans of both sides started arriving and began filtering through the city.

Some ended up in bars and pubs, others made a beeline for the Stade de France on the outskirts of the city, already keen to take in the atmosphere ahead of what promises to be a memorable final.

This, after all, is a rematch of 2018. Real got the better of Liverpool that day thanks largely to Gareth Bale's sublime overhead kick, perhaps the greatest goal to ever grace a Champions League final.

Liverpool, though, was left with a sense of what might have been following Mo Salah's early exit due to an injury caused by Sergio Ramos.

You can call it revenge or, as Salah put it in the aftermath of Real's semifinal comeback against Manchester City, there is a "score to settle."
