Chelsea and Liverpool will be only the second pair of teams to contest both the FA Cup and League Cup finals in the same season, after Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday in 1992-1993, when they clash on May 14.
Chelsea's Thomas Tuchel, who has lost his three domestic finals since taking charge at Stamford Bridge last season, was pleased with his side's recovery after the disappointment of their 5-4 aggregate Champions League defeat by Real.
"It's been a very challenging week physically and mentally. It was not easy because we played three games in three different competitions," Tuchel said, with Chelsea having also thrashed Southampton 6-0 away in the Premier League last Saturday.
"The performance was very controlled, very serious," he added.
"I am happy to be a part of it [the FA Cup final] again. I cannot be more excited and proud because it's a huge competition. We will be ready."
