2019 Champions League finalists

Tottenham Hotspur

Prior to this season, Tottenham had never progressed beyond the quarter-final stage of the Champions League.

But despite becoming the first side in Premier League history to not sign a single player during the course of a season, Spurs have beaten the odds to reach the final. They were 25/1 to win the competition at the start of the campaign. Now they’re 6/4 to lift the trophy.

They’ve already faced another English side in this year’s competition. The North London club were drawn against Premier League champions Manchester City.

City were 5/1 pre-tournament favourites, and many expected them to knock Tottenham out in their quest for a historic quadruple. But a Son Heung-Min goal gave Spurs a 1-0 lead in the first leg, before a thrilling 4-3 City win at the Etihad, which meant Pochettino’s side went through on away goals.

Spurs semi-final win over Ajax was even more dramatic. They were 3-0 down on aggregate with little more than half an hour of the tie to play.

But two quick-fire goals from Lucas Moura gave them real belief before the Brazilian completed his hat-trick right at the death to seal another away goals victory.

If Tottenham do go on to win the tournament, they would probably be the most unlikely winners since Liverpool in 2005.

Liverpool

This current Liverpool side is much better prepared for success than the side featuring the likes of Djimi Traore, Igor Biscan and Milan Baros were in 2005. After losing last year’s final, Jurgen Klopp’s side are clear 8/15 favourites to go one better this time.

They’ve just racked up 97 points in the Premier League, the third-highest tally ever achieved.

Alisson and Virgil van Dijk have made them much more solid at the back, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold may well be the most effective full-back partnership in Europe, and their attack can tear teams apart.

Two of their front three – Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane – also finished as joint-top Premier League scorers with 22 goals each.

Liverpool have tended to do well against English sides in Europe in their recent history. They beat Manchester United in the Europa League last-16 three years ago. The Reds also knocked Arsenal and Chelsea out of the Champions League in 2008 and 2005 respectively. They were also drawn in Chelsea’s group in 2006, though both matches finished goalless.

They haven’t done so well in recent finals. They’ve lost three finals under Jurgen Klopp – last year’s Champions League final, the 2016 Europa League final and the 2016 EFL Cup final.

Klopp himself has finished on the losing side in three European finals during his time in charge of Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool. He’ll be desperate to put an end to that unhappy streak in Madrid.

Liverpool were 10/1 to go all the way at the start of the tournament, behind European giants Man City, Juventus, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Having done very well last season, they’ve confirmed that they are one of the best sides on the continent this term.

English teams in the Champions League

English sides have been involved in some of the most incredible moments in Champions League history, especially when it comes to comebacks.

As well as Tottenham’s fight back against Ajax, Liverpool pulled off a miracle of their own to get to this year’s final.

After a Lionel Messi masterclass inspired a 3-0 Barcelona win in the first leg, they seemed to have no chance of getting through.

An early Divock Origi goal gave them momentum at Anfield, before two goals in two minutes from Giorginio Wijnaldum levelled the tie with over half an hour to play. With 11 minutes remaining, Alexander-Arnold’s clever corner caught Barcelona off-guard, allowing Origi to get the winner.

Of course, the Reds also pulled off another incredible comeback in the 2005 final.

Liverpool were 3-0 down to a superb AC Milan side in the first-half and staring down the barrel of a humiliating defeat. But three quick goals from Steven Gerrard, Vladimir Smicer and Xabi Alonso turned the tie around. Milan never recovered and Liverpool went on to win on penalties.

Manchester United also looked to be down and out in the 1999 final against Bayern Munich. They were 1-0 down in injury time, when a David Beckham corner fell to Teddy Sheringham, who levelled the tie. Bayern barely had time to pick themselves up, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored from another Beckham corner two minutes later to complete the treble.

There was also a previous all-English final in 2008. Chelsea battled their way to the final, where they faced Manchester United.

A tight match saw goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Frank Lampard cancel each other out, before it went to penalties.

Chelsea legend John Terry stepped up to take the club’s fifth penalty. If he scored, Chelsea would win. But he lost his footing and missed, inspiring countless memes. United went on to triumph 6-5 in the shootout.
