Spurs v Liverpool Champions League final line-up, score and betting predictions

After watching Chelsea triumph over Arsenal in the Europa League final, it is time to turn all the attention to the Champions League where Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspurs.

The Reds will no doubt be the favourites with the bookies after an amazing season, in which two of the three joint-top goalscorers in the Premier League play for the Anfield club, which saw them push PL winners Manchester City to wire. If you are looking to make the game more interesting with a wager you would be silly to overlook the Betfair promo code on offer.

Tottenham were challenging for the title until the midway point, and looked like they may well shape up for a three-way battle, but a torrid winter saw them fall from challenging for the title, and ended up having to scrape into a top four spot, losing out on third to eventual Europa League winners Chelsea.

Of course none of the above matters any longer, with a one-off match to be played in the Spanish capital of Madrid to decide who will be crowned kings of Europe.

Naby Keita is the only key player to be confirmed as missing the game thus far, albeit with question marks over the fitness of both sides main striker. Roberto Firminho is expected to be fit to start the match, having missed the previous few matches with a groin injury, while the heavily reported injury of Harry Kane is expected to magically disappear, causing hysteria amongst some Spurs fans who will be trying to figure out whether they want him to play from the start or not.

Predicted Spurs XI:

Trippier  Alderweireld  Vertonghen  Rose
Dier  Sissoko
Erikssen  Alli  Moura

I fully expect Kane to feature, but I feel like he will be used from the bench, although others will no doubt predict Son out wide instead of Lucas Moura, with the England star up top.

Predicted Liverpool XI:

TAA  Van Dijk  Matip  Robertson
Fabinho  Henderson  Wijnaldum
Mane  Firminho  Salah

James Milner will be tough to leave out the side, especially given his crucial penalty goals this season, but I feel that both Fabinho and Henderson will be favoured.

This game will be tense for both sets of fans but unlike last night, I feel like the attacks will be flowing from the off. Liverpool know nothing more than playing at full speed, and I feel as if they will be piling forward from the off.

This could go a number of ways, but I feel like the opening goal will dictate things. If the Reds fail to open the scoring before half-time you can expect the second-half to be ever so scrappy, but I feel as though Liverpool are going to grab an opening goal inside 30 minutes, forcing their opponents to open up.

Regardless of Kane’s inclusion, I expect there to be goals from both sides, but I foresee Liverpool ending their impressive campaign with a much-deserved trophy.

I’m going for a 3-1 win to the Merseyside club, priced up between 12-1 and 15-1 depending on your bookmaker. A shorter price worth looking at is Liverpool to score in both halves at around about 2/1 respectively.

What are your predictions for the big game?
