In the second all-English European final of the week, Tottenham and Liverpool lock horns in Madrid, for the honour of being crowned the best team in Europe. It all looked so different just a month back. Both sides were on the verge of elimination after poor first leg efforts in their respective semi-finals; two inspired comebacks have led us to this unlikely final, with Barcelona and Ajax still reeling from a historic 26 hours of football.
In all honesty, form goes out of the window in fixtures like this. Neither team has played a competitive match in just under three weeks, with both their domestic campaigns finishing in relative disappointment having lost out on the title (Liverpool) and third place (Tottenham).
Making their debut in a European Cup final, Tottenham is looking to become the latest newbies to pick up the trophy after Chelsea were the 22nd team to be crowned Champions of Europe in 2012. They are the 40th side to grace such final, with Pochettino over-achieving with a side that continues to leap hurdle after hurdle.
Harry Kane’s return to the Tottenham side is an intriguing prospect. Spurs have arguably faired better with the England captain missing from the side, with the likes of Lucas Moura, Heung-min Son and Llorente filling the void with relative success. Still, Kane will always be one of the first names on a Tottenham team sheet when fit, with the striker relishing the opportunity to take on Virgil van Dijk on the biggest stage.
Keita’s omission from the Liverpool side isn’t a huge concern for Klopp. With combinations of replacements at his disposal for a midfield spot, Wijnaldum may well get the nod in Madrid with a small re-shuffle needed. Roberto Firmino’s return to fitness is a huge boost for the Reds; the Brazilian played just 11 minutes of Liverpool’s last five games of the season.
This fixture can be won and lost in the blink of an eye. Both have shown vulnerabilities on the road this season without the home comforts of Merseyside and North London, but Liverpool’s resolute defence – coupled with their flying wingbacks – should cause Tottenham frustrations from kick-off. If Spurs overcommit, they’ll be stung on the break by this fluid Liverpool attack, buoyed by redemption having lost the final twelve months ago. Spurs have nothing to lose in this fixture – unfortunately for them, this mentality will leave too many holes for Salah and Mane to penetrate.
