Tottenham v Liverpool Betting Tips
Against all the odds, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have scrambled into the 2019 Champions League final which means we’ll definitely have an English team lifting the European Cup at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday 1 June.
It’s Liverpool who are favourites to record a sixth European Cup victory, with the Reds having somehow overcome a 3-0 first leg deficit against Barcelona when winning 4-0 at Anfield and the Merseyside outfit will feel it’s their destiny to triumph after losing in the final of the competition last season.
Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino should return for this game and it was a fine achievement to beat Barcelona without the attacking duo, while Andrew Robertson should also recover from the injury sustained during the semi-final second leg encounter.
Similarly, Harry Kane appears optimistic that he’ll be part of this massive occasion, with the Spurs captain having been sidelined with an ankle injury over the past few weeks although he was able to race on to the Amsterdam pitch after Tottenham pulled a rabbit out of the hat.
Mauricio Pochettino will feel confident that the north London club can win the European Cup for the first time in their history, especially when you reflect on the recent meeting at Anfield where Tottenham should really have won the match on the balance of play.
Lucas Moura had an outstanding match at Anfield and the Brazilian will be buzzing after that virtuoso hat-trick away at Ajax as his team somehow contrived to recover from a 3-0 deficit to enjoy an away goal triumph in the Netherlands.
We’re tempted to get with Spurs although the bottom line is that two teams from the same country meeting each other adds an element of unpredictability and there’s also the fact that Liverpool have finished streets ahead in the Premier League standings.
Therefore, we’ll plump for both teams to score instead. In both top flight meetings this season, this has been the case and we’re confident enough that both sides will go on the attack in search of goals.
