Liverpool v Tottenham UEFA Champions League Final Tips, Predictions and Preview - Reds to prove too good

Who will lift the Champions League trophy? (PA Images)

Liverpool and Tottenham collide in the UEFA Champions League Final on June 1. Who will lift the coveted trophy?

The Reds made it this far a year ago only to fall to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid, so can they go one better and finally end Jurgen Klopp’s miserable run of form in major cup finals. Or can Tottenham sprung another surprise to finally give Mauricio Pochettino some silverware to go along with the plaudits he has received during his time in North London?

Ahead of this huge all-English showdown in Madrid our we take a look at how the final will unfold.

Match Preview


Liverpool have looked superb this year and, perhaps if it was any other season, they would be preparing for the Champions League final with the Premier League trophy safely stowed away somewhere in Anfield. 

However, they were beaten by a Manchester City side that were able to pick up just one more point than them across 38 games in a supremely entertaining season. 

This is one of many reasons why I think the Reds will win this one. There is something incredibly unjust about Jugren Klopp’s men picking up 97 points and only losing once and, amazingly, they actually lost far more games across their Champions League campaign than in their domestic one, with three defeats in the group-stages and a loss to Barcelona in the first-leg of their semi-final. 

Clearly, either Liverpool are living a charmed life in Europe, or it is just written that they will win the 2018/19 edition of the competition, and with the likes of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino likely to start, they can prove too much for Spurs.

Liverpool won both of their meetings with Tottenham this season and, in fact, the Reds have lost to Spurs only once since Klopp arrived on Merseyside, so history certainly favours them here. 

The Reds’ defence has improved dramatically over the past 12 months, but Spurs scored in both of their Premier League meetings with Klopp’s side this season and both teams have now netted in each of the last four encounters. 

If you want to look back further, seven of the nine meetings since Klopp became Liverpool boss have seen both nets bulge, so history could well repeat itself in Madrid as the Reds claim the trophy.
