Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kostas Tsimikas were spotted wearing brain sensors in Liverpool training as preparations for the Champions League final continue

Liverpool have stepped up their preparations for the Champions League final by using brain sensors in their training. Brain sensors are a form of sports technology that helps athletes get into an optimum mental state to perform at a very high level.

And there’s definitely no grander moment this season for The Reds than when they will face Real Madrid on Saturday. Fullbacks Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kostas Tsimikas were seen wearing the electrodes during a session training on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will be hoping to lift their third trophy of the season. They have already beaten Chelsea twice in the Carabao Cup and FA Cup this season. Their dream of a historic quadruple was squashed when Manchester City successfully defended their Premier League title.

Focus has now shifted on how to get better of Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid. A lot will be a stake with Liverpool looking to exact its revenge over the Los Blancos. The two sides met in the 2018 final, where Real Madrid won their 13th crown in Kyiv.

This time round, the final is slated for Paris. The Sun reports that Liverpool have employed the services of German neuroscientist Dr Niklas Hausler who is the founder of the brain sensors.

The technology gathers data that helps to tailor individual training programmes. Dr. Hausler has previously been quoted by The Mirror saying,

When you are able to perform at your best, you let your motor output run automatically. You don’t have to think about it. What we do with the player is we decipher with them and figure out what parts of this process help him or her to get into that brain state.

Klopp is said to have approached the German scientists over enhancing setpiece taking ability of his side. That seems to have worked with Alexander-Arnold being a constant menace on pinpoint deliveries.

The Reds faithful will hoping the technology might have a thing or two to do with the outcome on Saturday
