REAL MADRID stars touched down in Paris ahead of their Champions League final looking like characters out of Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.
Carlo Ancelotti led his Band of Brothers as they left their Airplane for the team hotel.
And while veteran defender Marcelo looked suave as he prepares for his fifth Champions League final – team-mate Toni Kroos looked like he belonged in I, Robot.
Meanwhile Gareth Bale made his bid to become the first Welsh James Bond ahead of what could be his final game for Real Madrid.
Bale, who has been labelled a Parasite by the Spanish press, has been included in the 26-man squad for the final and after scoring three times in Champions League finals, Ancelotti could call on him for a bit of inspiration.
The Godfather of the Champions League, Ancelotti, is seeking his fourth title and first win since winning La Decima with Real in 2014.
He has history against Liverpool having lost to the Reds with Milan in Instanbul in a final he will look back on as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
The Italian got payback two years later and if his stars overcome Jurgen Klopp’s side he will consider them Goodfellas.
If Real are to win it will likely be The Usual Suspects causing a thorn in Liverpool’s side – Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr.
That pair will have to turn the Heat on Liverpool and are certainly capable of doing so, having scored a combined 18 goals in the competition this year.
