Reds definitely go into the final with the favourite tag. The three week difference between the final game of the Premier League and Champions League final must have helped Spurs cause. They got many of their key players back to fitness like Kane, Winks and Vertonghen.
Jurgen Klopp’s men already have experience of playing a Champions League and that will surely count for something in the final. Both the teams made stunning comebacks to reach the final in Madrid.
Liverpool will definitely be more dominant on the ball with Tottenham defending tactically against Salah and co. Battle on the wings will be an important factor in deciding the result of the final.
We expect Mane to be the key player in the final and his performance can decide the game. Our final verdict will be a Liverpool win in the final.
