The fixture marks the second ever all-English final in this competition and both mounted magnificent comebacks to reach this stage.

 

Spurs were trailing 3-0 on aggregate at half-time in the second leg against Ajax but a Lucas Moura hat-trick saw them through. Meanwhile, the Reds overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit to progress 4-3.

 

Jurgen Klopp's side also have extra motivation having lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in this competition's final 12 months ago and are aiming for their club's sixth title, while this will be the Lilywhites' first European Cup final.

 

Spurs are hopeful that talisman Harry Kane will be fit after recovering from an ankle injury, but Ben Davies misses out and there are doubts over Victor Wanyama.

 

Liverpool's only absentee is set to be midfielder Naby Keita and Klopp's selection quandary looks to be in the middle of the park, with both James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum battling for a place.

 

The Merseysiders won both Premier League games between these sides 2-1 and have lost just one of their last 14 meetings.

 

However, Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to take advantage of his opposite number's poor record in finals, having lost all three of the showpiece matches that his side have reached since taking over at Anfield in 2015.

 

BETTING ANALYSIS

 

In what is the biggest club fixture on the planet, Tottenham take on Liverpool as both clubs seek European glory. 

 

Both clubs produced footballing miracles in order to book their place in this final. Liverpool’s 4-0 victory over Barcelona at Anfield will go down as one of the most incredible games in the history of the sport. 

 

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s epic second-half comeback against Ajax will no doubt be remembered as one of the all-time greatest moments in football. 

 

This entire Champions League season has been packed full of surprises, comebacks and memorable moments – according to many this may very well be the greatest season of Champions League football we have ever seen. 

 

Nevertheless, it all comes down to two teams this Saturday night and the bookmakers are currently siding with Liverpool following their strong end to the season. 

 

Spurs, on the other hand, have been priced at 16/5 and a lot of that is down to their woeful form over the past two months. 

 

It’s hard to believe but Mauricio Pochettino’s men have only managed two wins from their last eight games. Comparatively speaking, Liverpool have won 13 of their last 14 games in all competitions. 

 

When looking at the head to heads, once again it is the Reds who hold a slight advantage. Jurgen Klopp’s side have won three from their last five encounters – this includes a Premier League double this season. 

 

However, despite the form, despite the head to head record and despite a number of potential injury absentees, the recommendation in this game is to back Tottenham. 

 

There have been a plethora of surprises in this season’s Champions League and who says it cannot happen again in the final. 

 

What’s more, Spurs are priced at 16/5 and offer a lot more value for money in a largely 50/50 contest.
