Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool – 2019 Champions League Final

After months of fighting between all of Europe’s top clubs, the Champions League Final is set to be fought between Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in a fixture conducted at Atletico Madrid’s Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Both managers possess a massive point to prove, Pochettino without a trophy since joining Spurs in 2014 and Klopp arguably more in need of silverware due to arriving at Anfield in 2015, promising the world, and only delivering appearances in finals and a runner-up place in the Premier League.

Fans of Liverpool are left with a feeling of disappointment following an incredible ninety-seven point season which still saw them pipped to the post by an absolutely unstoppable Manchester City. The Reds’ only defeat came to Manchester City, leaving the seven draws they picked up along the way as their only shortfall.

Playing weakened teams in EFL Cup and FA Cup fixtures in order to prioritise the Premier League title race and a chance at the Champions League came back to bite them, but it will all be worthwhile if they can live up to the hype of being favourites for this meeting, especially after they featured in last year’s final.

Inconsistency has been the death of Tottenham Hotspur, ruling themselves out as one of the stronger sides in the Premier League to result at fourth in the table behind a Chelsea side that were underwhelming throughout. A prolonged injury for Harry Kane ruled out their best player, with both Heung-Min Son and Lucas Moura stepping up when it mattered.

Kane is expected to return to the side for the final, making a potential conundrum for Pochettino, but Spurs can be impossible to face when playing to their fullest ability, so this game should be an exciting matchup between two of the Premier League’s most exciting teams.

Tips and Predictions for the Champions League Final

Any final is difficult to predict as teams can either live up to expectation, play even better than usual, or fall apart at the first sign of pressure. It was originally expected that Ajax would be facing Liverpool, but a massive turnaround in the second leg between Spurs and the Dutch side saw Poch’s men clinch a place in the final against all odds.

The fact that Liverpool appeared in last year’s Champions League Final makes it easier to see Liverpool lifting the trophy. Defeating Spurs is what the bookmakers are expecting, pricing Liverpool at EVENS to win the game. To include the expected threat of Spurs, we’d predict Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 3/1. Both Premier League meetings finished in this way over the last season too, so it makes the most sense to get behind this outcome.

More than one player is capable of scoring here, with those betting expected to bet on all of Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane, Sadio Mane, Heung-Min Son, Roberto Firmino, Lucas Moura and several others to get on the scoresheet. As Sadio Mane has been one of the most impressive players this season, scoring the joint-most amount of Premier League goals, and even scoring in last year’s Champions League Final, we’d advise getting behind him at 13/8 to score at any time.

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah proved he wasn’t a one season wonder after scoring another twenty-two Premier League goals, claiming the Golden Boot alongside teammate Sadio Mane and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
