Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool Preview

Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool

Competition – UEFA Champions League Final

Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano

Date: 1st June 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Liverpool have been one of the best sides in Europe this season and it is criminal to think that Jurgen Klopp’s men can end this season without a trophy.

The Reds finished runners up in the Premier League by a single point after amassing 97 points, the highest ever not to win the Premier League and the 3rd highest ever by any team in the Premier League era.

They can make all of that make sense if they win this game and earn their 6th Champions League crown, but Tottenham would be keen to put a spanner in the works.

The Londoners showed that they can do what Liverpool can by coming back from 3-0 down with 45 minutes left to play to beat Ajax in the semifinals.

Mauricio Pochettino is also a well-respected tactician and the Argentinean is trophy-less in England just like Jurgen Klopp so it will be interesting to see who comes out tops in this game.

Jurgen Klopp hasn’t been fortunate when it comes to finals.  This will be the German’s 3rd Champions League final and he has lost the last two.

As the manager of Liverpool, this will be his fourth competitive final and he has no trophies to show for it.

Liverpool fans would feel that they have had enough heartbreaks and this should finally be their time to rejoice.

Whenever these teams have met recently, there has been goals so expect a lively final even if the opening 20-30 minutes are tight.

Bookmakers have priced Liverpool up as slight odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game while Tottenham will start the final as underdogs.

As with most Liverpool games, Mohamed Salah is clear favourite to score the opening goal however Harry Kane is expected to return for Tottenham and he is a close second favourite.

This game gets underway at 20:00 BST and can be watched live on BT Sport in the UK.  International listings will vary.
