When Jürgen Klopp took over in October 2015 as new coach at the Liverpool Football Club, he promised at least one title in the first four years. Barely half a decade later, the native of Schwabe actually has the opportunity to realize this then still rather unrealistic goal.
The ex-Dortmunder has made it with the “Reds” in the second season successively into the final of the Champions League and would next Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in the Spanish capital Madrid against the league rivals from London on his personal memorial in the Build Beatles City.
Tottenham vs Liverpool Champions League Tips 2019
In the run-up to the highly anticipated Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool, the odds are a clear favorite in favor of the LFC, right after the semi-final return match against FC Barcelona and last season’s final experience should unite the own side.
In terms of dramatic comeback story Spurs are the Liverpoolern incidentally in any way. While the “Reds” caught the 3-0 deficit by beating the reigning Spanish champions thanks to a 4-0 home win, Tottenham needed just one half and a towering Lucas Moura to draw 0-3 in the second leg , Finally, the more scored away goals led to the first-ever final play-off in the premier class.
At both clubs the anticipation has been noticeable for several weeks, which is why we can look forward to an intense and, above all, highly emotional match. Although the coaches Jürgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino are trying these days to radiate laxity and coolness, the tension in the form of a too strong feeling of “winning must” in the end could make the difference. But because Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Co. were already in a similar position last year, in our eyes, between Tottenham and Liverpool, the prediction that a tip will pay off for the newly crowned runner-up in England seems more obvious.
Tottenham – Statistics & Current Form
For over ten years the fans of supposed underdogs had to wait before, for the first time since 2008 (Chelsea), with the Tottenham Hotspurs Football Club, a newcomer reached the final for the coveted Henkel pot. The potentially 23rd different winner in the history of the most important UEFA competition has definitely earned the summer’s unlikely endgame participation.
In the preliminary round Mauricio Pochettino’s team had their backs to the wall in the meantime and qualified for the round of the last 16 at FC Barcelona thanks to a 1-1 draw on the final day of the match. After two successes, Borussia from Dortmund came on eliminated. In the quarter-finals, the two dramatic matches against Manchester City, in which the “Spurs” showed irrepressible will and met despite staffing problems at the Etihad Stadium three times. The 3: 4 in the second leg was finally enough to put the top-favorite on the title in their place. As if the success in Manchester had not been emotional enough, followed the semi-final games against Ajax Amsterdam, which brought in terms of drama in fact, an increase. The Brazilian Lucas Moura became an absolute match winner with a flawless hat-trick as well as his last-minute goal to make it 3-2 and thus caused collective cheers at the “Lilywhites”.
The enormous feelings of happiness after the surprise final draw could certainly be one of the psychologically valuable reasons to at least keep an eye on the odds of a success of the Premier League fourth on Saturday night between Tottenham and Liverpool. Despite the multiple positive mentality, however, it must be stated that the Spurs won only half of the twelve games in the competition (two draws, four defeats). Historically, the club’s trips to the premier-league triumph over the weekend could add to the trophy pool in UEFA competitions as the sixth club, but not necessarily to Spain’s success. To date, Londoners have never won on the Iberian Peninsula. A bad omen in terms of the biggest game in the club’s history so far?
“I feel good and ready.” With these words, Harry Kane made great hopes for blue-and-white supporters during the week. Whether the English striker after just two months break and his now fifth foot injury in the past three years, however, is fit enough to run aground from the beginning, seems more than questionable.
“I feel good and I’m ready. There are no problems so far. For me, it’s about getting as fit as possible. ” – Harry Kane
Well possible that Pochettino gives the semi-final hero Lucas Moura the confidence and his captain – depending on the game – only substitutes. Otherwise, the staff situation has relaxed significantly and the Argentine coach can almost draw on the full.
Expected lineup of Tottenham:
↪ Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Sissoko, Wanyama, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Moura

Liverpool – Statistics & Current Form
Jürgen Klopp is considered one of the best coaches in the world. The football teacher, who grew up in the Black Forest, has been very successful in all his stations so far. “Kloppo” led Mainz into the Bundesliga, with Dortmund including the Double and is currently mainly responsible for the fact that Liverpool for the second time in a row has moved into the Champions League final. Only the yield in big finals might not really satisfy the perhaps most authentic people in the professional business.
After all, the 51-year-old has lost all of his six recent finals. Particularly bitter were the Pleiten 2013 with Borussia Dortmund against Bayern and 2018 with Liverpool against Real Madrid, which prevented the big coup in the premier class. The native of Stuttgart alone is in three lost title games (Europa League, League Cup, Champions League) as well as the recently fixed runner-up championship in the Premier League. The greater the will of all parties involved to end this curse and to bring the Henkel pot for the first time after 2005 and for the sixth time on the Merseyside.
Similar to Tottenham, Liverpool not only once faced the (early) knock-out in the current competition. In the group stage, the previous year’s finalist by no means stained with fame and battled with three losses in the second place in the second round. In the two encounters with Bayern, however, it became clear that the English top team is quite capable of two gears up to switch.
“I really do want that, but not for me. But for my players and this big club. It would make me happy if we could do that. ” – Jürgen Klopp
The 3-1 away win in the second leg at the Allianz Arena was definitely one of the most important milestones on the way to Madrid. In the last eight, FC Porto were easily eliminated before the Reds made it to the Reds in the semi-final second leg at home against Barcelona, which is likely to be a “perfect 90 minutes”. With 4-0 won the upturned Klopp protected at the home Anfield, creating one of the craziest comebacks in football history.
From a statistical point of view, it would be useful in the Champions League final against Tottenham. Liverpool give a tip to the Premier League runner-up. The LFC not only won both league games against the Spurs in the current season, but is also undefeated in the recent five European games against English representatives (three wins, two draws). Although the kickers from the north-west of the country have lost four of Spain’s past five appearances, the overall record on Iberian soil remains positive (seven wins, five draws, six bankruptcies).
Probably the biggest advantage that causes us to make a prediction on the “Reds” in the final between Tottenham and Liverpool, we see in the experience. Alone in the recent three Champions League triumphs of Real Madrid you could see how important it is at this level to have already learned his lessons. Since Jürgen Klopp also revealed that he and his team see painful defeats as medicine in order to become even better in the future, we are firmly convinced that the time will be ripe next Saturday. Liverpool is against Tottenham according to the odds rightly favored. Personally, all important players are available except for Naby Keita. Therefore, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino should return to the starting eleven in comparison to the second leg against the Catalans. Despite his two goals Divock Origi must take accordingly on the bench.
Expected formation of Liverpool:
↪ Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino
Last Games from Liverpool:
⚽️ 12.05.2019 – Liverpool Vs. Wolverhampton 2: 0 (Premier League)

⚽️ 04.05.2019 – Newcastle Vs. Liverpool 2: 3 (Premier League)
