Liverpool Starting XI Prediction vs Tottenham Hotspur (Champions League Final)



Are Liverpool FC just built for European competition? Is it simply in their DNA to succeed in the UEFA Champions League? Saturday evening might bring more credence to this idea as the Reds go for their sixth UCL/European Cup in Madrid against Tottenham Hotspur.

Like United in the league or Arsenal in the FA Cup, the UCL seems to be Liverpool’s specialty. That’s part of why they’re so heavily favored this weekend. If you’re doing any sports betting this week, you’ll see the UCL final odds strongly on the side of the Reds. The main reason for their status as heavy favorites though is their extremely dominant form. It hasn’t resulted in a trophy yet, but that is likely to change in a couple days.
