As for the 2018/19 Champions League season, the biggest surprises are coming from the Tottenham Hotspur. Even the finals alone had not expected the football world – but with the way in which the final was achieved, the Londoners shot off the bird.
Even the group phase had not survived the team completely stress-free. The FC Barcelona had nothing to oppose (0: 3), and also with Inter Milan, the British had to fight (1-1). Ultimately, however, it was enough to reach the knockout round – in which the team was to fight historic battles.
The round of sixteen was still smooth and tensionless: The Dortmund Borussia bought not necessarily playful cutting off, but thanks to brutal efficiency they were the Bundesliga still in the barriers (1-0, 3: 0). Nerve Strength Day was left to the team – otherwise it would have been over in the quarterfinals.
Against Manchester City namely Tottenham was the individually defeated team, the underdog with fewer game shares. In the first leg, however, the Spurs had their only real chance to win (1-0) before the return match to the drama became unparalleled: in a game for the history books, the pressurized Manchester dominated, but Tottenham never got stuck and ultimately came in third : 4-defeat, which meant the semi-final entry thanks to the away goals rule. However, if Citys Raheem Sterling had not been off the beaten track in the final seconds, his 5: 3 goal would have been recognized and Tottenham eliminated.
Luckily, the Spurs were on hold and the team were again challenged against Ajax Amsterdam: The semi-final first leg were lost to the team 1-0 – the young surprise team from the Netherlands also caught the Spurs ice cold. In the second leg Tottenham was under pressure of pressure – and just when it came to the biggest success in the club’s history, as the team grew beyond itself: With a 0-2 deficit, the Londoners came from the half-time break before the big hour of Lucas hit. With his hat-trick, the Brazilian was the executor for a strong-playing Tottenham. He rewarded his team for the unbelievable pressure that unfolded – and as if the drama was not already big enough, he scored the all-important 3-2 victory in the fifth minutes of stoppage time.
Bottom line was Tottenham’s way to the first CL final in club history as spectacular as it is possible. Against this backdrop, Coach Pocchettino’s team is confident in the endgame against Liverpool despite modest performances in the league: against Everton (2: 2) and Bournemouth (0: 1) brought the Spurs on the final Premier League matchdays just one point, which was the long-believed third place still lost to Chelsea.
Possible lineup Tottenham Hotspur
Pocchettino is used to restrain, rather passive football play let. And he will trust his usual powers. The following formation seems to be expected:
Lloris – Trippier, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Rose – Sissoko, Winks, Eriksen – Alli – Son, Lucas
Liverpool FC – Statistics & Current Form
The last three results: 2: 0 vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers, 4-0 vs. FC Barcelona, 3: 2 vs. Newcastle
It’s bitter: there are the 97 points – club record – and still remains only the second place in the end. Despite an outstanding Premier League season, Liverpool have to settle for second place this year. Because Manchester City collected a single point in 38 match days (98).
To blame the Reds in view of their famous achievements really nothing – but medially, the result is considered “typical Klopp”: The star coach once again proved his outstanding leadership qualities – but for a title it was not enough in the end. Once again.
Klopp has now lost six finals in a row, in addition to the superficially missed championship title 2019. Should now also lost the Champions League final – as in the past year (1: 3 vs. Real Madrid) – it would be the prestige re-inflict sensitive damage on the trainer.
After all: Liverpool is in the run-up to the final favorite – for a good reason. Because not only national dominated the Reds this season. They also played great in the Champions League.
The group phase was anything but easy with opponents like PSG and Naples, but at the end of the exhausting preliminary round was the knockout stage.
There, the next heavy chunk awaited with Bayern, but thanks to a world-class return leg, they sat down highly deserved (0: 0, 3: 1).
In the quarter-finals Liverpooo had with FC Porto no problems (2-0, 4: 1) – but all the more so with semi-final opponents Barcelona.
Against the Catalans lost the team in the first leg 0: 3, accordingly, the Champions League-off seemed already sealed. In the second leg but the team turned the tables, they won thanks to a sensational performance with 4-0 – and thus celebrated the biggest comeback of recent CL history. It is one of many reasons that has brought Liverpool many sympathies: but to crown the excellent season appropriately – and not to sunk in the Valley of Tears as last year – it needs one last victory. The most important for years.
Possible line-up Liverpool FC
Klopp can draw almost completely from the full. He will muster the strongest Elf he can nominate. It could look like this:
Becker – Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Matip, Robertson – Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum – Salah, Firmno, Mané

It was already in the final year in the finals stood (1: 3 against Madrid), previously in the Europa League final, and especially for Jürgen Klopp it should be after almost ten important finals as coach hardly any surprises. This year, he will reward himself and his Reds.
