Liverpool and Tottenham both qualified for the Champions League final in spectacular fashion, highlighting how anything can happen in Madrid.
However, the Reds have to be rated as a form pick to lift this trophy for the sixth time after beating Spurs twice in the Premier League this season.
We’re happy to take 17/20 for Jurgen Klopp’s side to prevail in normal time for our initial Tottenham vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham looked dead and buried at half-time of their semi-final second leg in Amsterdam, as they trailed Ajax 2-0 on the night and 3-0 on aggregate.
However, Lucas Moura’s stunning second-half hat-trick, with the third coming deep into stoppage time, turned the tie on its head and sent Spurs through to a first European Cup final.
Mauricio Pochettino commented: “It’s difficult with words to describe my feelings and my emotions, I think everything was amazing.
“It is going to be an amazing final between two English teams that for sure we are going to enjoy.”
Tottenham also upset the odds when knocking out Manchester City at the last-eight stage, so they can’t be taken lightly and constantly look dangerous going forward.
Spurs do invariably appear fragile in defence when facing elite-level teams, though, so 5/2 for the Reds to win and both teams to score stands out from the Tottenham vs Liverpool odds.
Harry Kane’s fitness has been a big talking point in the build-up to the final but Spurs head coach Pochettino was giving little away regarding his selection plans this week.
Whether or not the England striker does start, it will be asking a lot for him to be at his peak after almost two months out.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool incredibly overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit by crushing Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield – and they did it without injured stars Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum each hit a double as the Reds ran riot on a wild night on Merseyside, spurred on by an amazing atmosphere.
The Reds can now draw on the experience of having reached last season’s decider, when beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in Kiev.
Liverpool held their own for an hour that night, but a brilliant overhead kick by Gareth Bale and two errors by goalkeeper Loris Karius proved their undoing.
“Last year, we really felt we have to go back,” said Klopp. “We have to go back, we cannot let it stand like this, that’s not possible.”
With outstanding shot-stopper Alisson since replacing Karius as the final piece of Klopp’s jigsaw, Liverpool look well placed to go one better.
Klopp has an appalling record in finals, losing the last six showpiece events he has contested as a manager, but insists that does not faze him.
He added: “If I were to sit in the room and think it is all about me, I am the reason, if I saw myself as a loser, then we would have a problem, but I don’t see myself as this.”
Both of this season’s domestics meetings finished 2-1 in favour of the Reds and 31/4 for a repeat of that scoreline is added to our Tottenham vs Liverpool betting tips.
Firmino has been passed fit for the Reds after missing the last three matches with a thigh problem.
