In the 1980/81 edition of the European Cup, the Reds emerged victorious at the Parc des Princes with a 1-0 win, with Alan Kennedy scoring the only goal of the game in the last 10 minutes.
A lot more happened in the other final which took place in the 2017/18 campaign. Real Madrid won that one 3-1 as fans witnessed arguably the greatest goal ever scored in the final, with Gareth Bale leading up to fire a miraculous overhead kick into the top corner to seal the crown for Los Blancos.
That night was one to forget for Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, who made a high-profile error.
Interestingly, both sides have won three games each and each of the three wins have come in a run.
The biggest win for either side came in the 2008/09 campaign as Liverpool won 4-0 in the last 16 at Anfield, with Steven Gerrard scoring two, and Fernando Torres and Andrea Dossena scoring one each.
