Tottenham v Liverpool - Champions League Final Betting Tips
Tottenham and Liverpool meet in the Champions League final for the first all-English affair since Manchester United and Chelsea met in 2008. It’s a familiar scene for Liverpool who managed to reach last year’s final in Kiev. But for Spurs, it’s their first Champions League final in their history, and they will be hoping it isn’t their last. Both sides have injury worries heading into the match, with Roberto Firmino and Harry Kane still both doubtful for a return in Madrid. For the latest Champions League betting odds, head over to Bet UK’s online betting markets, where you can find football betting odds on all football this summer.

Tottenham’s Road To The Champions League Final
Tottenham have reached their first Champions League final in Madrid and have done so in breathtaking fashion. They were first drawn in Group B with Barcelona, Inter Milan and PSV, arguably the ‘Group Of Death’ in this year’s Champions League. It took a late equaliser at the Nou Camp and a PSV goal against Inter Milan to ensure that Tottenham went through in the final matchday of the group stage. After finishing second, they faced a Borussia Dortmund side that had only been beaten once that season. Surprisingly, Spurs won both legs and established themselves as European competitor for the first time. Against Man City in the quarter finals, Spurs’ 3 away goals sent them through despite last minute drama at the Etihad. That seemed like as good as it would get, but Spurs’ season peaked in Amsterdam. After losing the first leg 1-0 and losing 2-0 at half time at Ajax, Lucas Moura turned the game around. A second half hattrick, including a last minute winner, ensured that Spurs would be facing Liverpool in Madrid. During the campaign, Spurs’ games have averaged just over 3 goals per game. Hopefully they show up for another memorable final on Saturday.

Liverpool’s Road To The Champions League Final
Liverpool reached their second Champions League final in 2 years, but it turned out to be more difficult than last year. The campaign started by being drawn against PSG, Napoli and Red Star Belgrade in Group C. Liverpool scraped out of the group in second place, losing 3 times and only advancing on total goals scored. Finishing second in the group gave them a tougher draw against Bayern Munich in the round of 16. They comfortably won the second leg 3-1 to take them through to the next round, where they beat Porto over two years for the second year running. Their semi final tie against Barcelona got off to an awful start with a 3-0 loss at the Nou Camp. However back at Anfield, Liverpool produced a remarkable comeback to win 4-0 and move onto the final. Unlike last season, Liverpool’s front three haven’t blown teams away. Instead, Divock Origi has emerged as a cult hero thanks to late goals in both Europe and the Premier League. With Roberto Firmino’s injury still unsure, expect Origi to start again and try to cement his name in Liverpool folklore.
Where’s the value bet?
Despite Liverpool’s improved defence this season, Tottenham are one of the few teams that have managed to score against Liverpool in both games this season. In fact, 8 of the last 10 matches between the two sides have seen both sides scoring, so that’s something we can expect in Madrid. On top of that, Liverpool have the much better form in matches between the two sides. Since 2012, Spurs have only beaten the Reds twice, with Liverpool winning 8 times. We also have to take the occasion into account, with none of Spurs’ squad having experienced a match of this size. All signs point towards a 6th Liverpool Champions League win.

Bet UK’s Headline Betting Tip
After coming so close last season, we expect Liverpool to go one step further this time around. Tottenham might struggle on the big stage but with such a young squad, they will be back competing again in years to come.
