Champions League Final Preview, Saturday 1st June 2019, Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid
For around 80 seconds on the final day of the Premier League season, Liverpool fans thought it might just be their day. After they had taken the lead at Anfield against Wolves, Brighton scored the opening goal on their patch against Manchester City. Alas, that hope was short-lived for the Reds as City equalised almost immediately, and went on to win 4-1, clinching the Premier League title by a single point.
Of course, Reds fans still have this game to look forward to, but can Jurgen Klopp’s men do the business in Madrid or will Spurs steal the glory?
Spurs ended the season in fourth spot after their form really deserted them towards the end of the league campaign. Losing three and drawing one of their last five league matches meant Chelsea pipped Tottenham to third spot by a single point. This will clearly have frustrated Mauricio Pochettino, but he’ll have turned his attentions to this game and put the faltering end to the league out of his mind.
Liverpool Have Upper Hand
Liverpool have the advantage over Tottenham when it comes to past meetings between the sides. The Reds have won 82 times against Spurs, with 42 draws and 48 victories for Tottenham.
In recent times, the scales have been firmly tilted the way of the Merseyside club. Of the last 14 meetings between the sides in all competitions, Liverpool have won nine, with three draws and just a solitary triumph for Spurs (a 4-1 home win in the Premier League in October 2017).
There has not usually been much between the sides in terms of goals (with that 4-1 Spurs win aside). In the last 10 meetings, four wins (all for Liverpool) have been with one-goal margins, one win for the Reds by two goals, that three-goal margin for Spurs and four draws.
Note also that five of the last six matches between them have produced three or more goals, and that eight of the last 10 have seen both sides score.

Champions League Final Betting Verdict
We can’t see either of these usually expansive sides playing it too safe in Madrid and we anticipate a game that will be full of thrills and spills. We can’t see either side keeping a clean sheet in this one and backing both teams to score looks like a very sensible opening bet that might well pay out by half time.
To get something at slightly longer odds, we think Liverpool’s superior attacking quality and recent dominance over Spurs will give them the edge. We’re backing the Reds to win in 90 minutes with over 3.5 goals being scored in the game.

Spurs’ Route to the Champions League Final
For the first time since 2008, two English teams have booked their place in the final of the Champions League. It’s been one of the most memorable editions of Europe’s elite club competition of recent times with no shortage of drama during both Liverpool’s and Tottenham’s path to the final. In case you’ve somehow forgotten any of it, here’s a quick reminder of how each team booked their place in Madrid.
Tottenham return from the brink
One point from their opening three Champions League matches put Tottenham on the verge of an early Champions League exit. Their fate was almost sealed in gameweek four but a dramatic Harry Kane brace against PSV kept their hopes alive. Another late strike, this time from Christian Eriksen, secured an even more vital three points against Inter as Spurs moved into second in the group.
VAR comes to the rescue
Having breezed past Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, Tottenham’s reward was a quarter-final test with Manchester City. A truly staggering start to the second leg, which saw five goals in the opening 21 minutes, stunned the Etihad crowd but there was far more drama left to come. In the dying seconds of the game, Raheem Sterling won the game for City…or so he thought. VAR cut the wild celebrations short as it revealed Sergio Aguero was marginally offside in the build-up.
Moura the hero in Amsterdam
Trailing 3-0 to Ajax on aggregate and with only 45 minutes left to play, Tottenham were again in danger of exiting the Champions League with a whimper. Mauricio Pochettino’s men refused to give in though and two quick fire goals from Lucas Moura injected life into the tie. Time appeared to be running out for the London club but their Brazilian wizard popped up in the 96th minute, slotting home to complete an incredible turnaround.
Liverpool’ Route to the Champions League Final
Like Spurs, Liverpool started slowly and only just made it through their group. Three away defeats, including one to Red Star Belgrade, left Liverpool needing to beat Napoli in their final group stage match. Anything less would have seen the Reds out at the expense of the Italians but a fine Mohamed Salah goal and a heroic late save from Alisson got the job done.
Progression to the knockouts couldn’t have been much nervier but Liverpool fans didn’t have to sweat as much in the round of 16 or quarter-finals. Three away goals gave Jurgen Klopp’s men a surprisingly comfortable win against Bayern and things were even easier against a distinctly inferior Porto during the quarter-finals.
Reds involved in another epic
Visiting teams rarely fare well against Barcelona in the Champions League and Liverpool were no exception despite putting in a spirited display. A 3-0 loss was harsh on the Merseysiders, with late Lionel Messi magic seeming to give Barca an unassailable lead, though they did squander late chances to make it 4-0.
Despite the 3-0 loss, given Liverpool’s history of epic European comebacks, few dared rule out the possibility of a miracle at Anfield, even when news broke that Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah would miss the game through injury. Lacking two of their regular heroes, up stepped an unlikely one in the form of Divock Origi who stuck the first and last goal of an incredible 4-0 win.
