After both teams overcame the odds in their respective semi-final ties, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool will go head-to-head in Madrid for the Champions League trophy. In what is the second of two all-English European finals this year, the Premier League duo will be doing everything they can to come out on top at the newly built Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool Match Preview
Tottenham and Liverpool overcame Ajax and Barcelona respectively in two of the greatest comebacks European football has ever seen in order to reach the final of the 2019 UEFA Champions League, with both sides hoping to put disappointing domestic finishes behind them as they head to the Spanish capital. Spurs will be taking part in their first ever Champions League final, while Liverpool are five-time European champions.
Brazilian Lucas Moura scored a second half hat-trick, including a 96th minute winner, against Ajax in order to send the North Londoner’s through to the final on away goals, while Liverpool recovered from a 3-0 defeat at the Camp Nou to get the better of Barcelona in another famous night at Anfield.
Having finished second in the Premier League, it is Liverpool who are the favourites for victory at the beginning of June, however there is little to choose between the duo when it comes to the betting odds from major online bookmakers. For those looking to place a bet on Europe’s biggest club competition, let’s take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham Hotspur Team News & Form
A draw with Everton on the final day of the Premier League campaign meant that Spurs had to settle for a fourth-place finish in the standings, however their main focus over recent weeks has undoubtedly been the Champions League. Having been without star man Harry Kane since back in April, the likes of Moura and Son Heung-Min have stepped up to the plate in a big way, however manager Pochettino is still hopeful of having the England skipper fit enough to play some part in Madrid.
Elsewhere, Spurs are also sweating on the fitness of defender Jan Vertonghen, who suffered a foot injury against his former team Ajax a matter of weeks ago. With fellow defender Davinson Sanchez also struggling, Spurs can certainly not afford any other setbacks in this area of the pitch ahead of the final. Spurs have seen off Dortmund, Man City and Ajax in reaching their first ever Champions League final, with their goal threat making them a match for any team in Europe, including Liverpool. Perhaps little should be read into their recent Premier League form, with the Lilywhites having lost to the likes of West Ham and Bournemouth at the end of the season.
Liverpool Team News & Form
As for Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp will be looking to put the disappointment of missing out on a first ever Premier League title on the final day of the season behind them at the earliest possible opportunity, with his sides 4-0 second leg victory over Barcelona demonstrating just how much of a threat they are at present. Commanding centre-back Virgil van Dijk recently picked up the Premier League Player of the Year Award, demonstrating just how effective he has been since his move to Anfield, while the attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino will undoubtedly cause the Spurs backline problems.
Liverpool saw off Bayern Munich, FC Porto and Barcelona in reaching the final in Madrid, meaning that it comes as little surprise that they are the favourites to add to their five European titles this year. Meanwhile, having lost just once in the Premier League all season, coming against eventual title winners Manchester City in January, Liverpool will head to Spain full of confidence. Their pressing style of play has seen them become one of the most difficult teams to play over recent times, while full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson are effective at both ends of the field.
