Jurgen Klopp's side could win their third trophy of the season on Saturday evening and their seventh European Cup overall.
Gerrard is a boyhood Red and won the competition as Liverpool captain in 2005. It's only natural he'd be in Saint-Denis to support his team.
What's caused controversy however is the former England international appearing on Liverpool's Twitter account.

"Hello everyone, I'm just here in Paris for the final," Gerrard states while sat inside the Stade de France. "All the players training in the background and preparing. You can feel the atmosphere building.
"I'd like to wish everyone at Liverpool the best of luck. I hope you get the outcome everyone wants. I'm getting excited for the game. Fans are building up nicely outside the stadium hopefully it'll be a fantastic game.
"I predict a 2-0 Liverpool win."
It's a nice message, but some aren't happy a current Premier League manager is opening supporting another team on social media.
One commented: "Doesn't he have another team to be worried about?"
Another said: "This is really weird."
While someone tweeted: "Stuff like this just shows that Gerrard doesn’t give a f**k about Villa all just to impress the Liverpool hierarchy so he can get the job after Klopp."
A lot of Villa fans believe it's an overreaction however and are backing their manager.
One user put: "In all fairness, he has deserved a break after sorting major business early."
A second added: "If you're an Aston Villa fan and getting rattled by this video, you need to give your head a wobble."
It was also summed up with: "No issue with this at all. No conflict with Villa and he's an ex-Liverpool player and fan."
Villa finished 14th in the Premier League this season and are already making serious moves in the transfer window.

In the past week, they've announced the signings of Boubacar Kamara and Diego Carlos.
Kamara arrives as a free agent after leaving Marseille and is regarded as a top talent in midfield.
Meanwhile, Europa League winner Carlos will arrived from Sevilla for an undisclosed fee.
They also completed the permanent signing of Philippe Coutinho earlier this month after a successful loan spell from Barcelona.
It's fair to say Gerrard has probably earned a bit of a break isn't it?
