The UEFA 2019 Champions League final promises to deliver what has been a wonderful effort by the English teams. Having overcome massive odds in the semi -finals both teams will want to show a good account of themselves (www.inews.co.uk/sport).
Liverpool’s Route to Champions League Success
Liverpool’s journey wasn’t simple. After losing to Napoli and Paris-Saint Germain early in the campaign, they were lucky to get out of the group.
Bayern Munich and Porto though proved no match for The Reds and were clinically dispatched until their 3-0 loss to Barcelona in the semi-final first leg.
Liverpool, motivated by that loss attacked Barcelona and the return leg at Anfield didn’t disappoint. The Reds display of high intense press, allowed Barcelona few opportunities to get into their rhythm and as a result Liverpool simply blew them away.
Tottenham Hotspur Route to Glory
Tottenham have been equally impressive during the qualifying rounds. Having looked significantly off the pace in the opening group, Pochettino’s management allowed Spurs to overcome some tricky fixtures against Barcelona, Inter Milan and PSV.
After just slipping through, they soon found momentum. Spurs went on to dispatch Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and then Ajax in a classic encounter. They have now everything to play for and nothing to fear.
They, will not be daunted by the Reds and will surely have Harry Kane available for the final.
This could be one of the greatest European finals and a first contested by two English teams. The winner will get the glory and an earned total of around £65 million pounds awaits the victor in Madrid (www.msn/sport.com).
