Result wise, Spurs, haven’t actually been great before their upcoming weekend clash. Mauricio Pochettino’s men lose three, drew one and win one out of their last five games.
Although Spurs were setting their focus fully on the Champions League, but they could still put on better results. Nevertheless, being in Champions League final is a special experience that they never forgets.

The Reds themselves ending their season in a strong fashion, winning four and only losing one of their last five games. Those positive result will put their confidence still pretty high ahead of this weekend clash.
Jurgen Klopp’s side might feel slightly disappointed seeing their failure in getting the Premier League title. That’s why grabbing the Champions League remain massively important for them.
Pochettino’s side will still be missing some names for next weekend clash with Serge Aurier, Harry Winks and Janssen potentially out. Harry Kane himself will still be doubtful, but he should be available for selection.
Tottenham should still rely on their important names such as Christian Eriksen, Delle Ali and Son Heung Min. They will also hope that Hugo Lloris can produce big performance for them on Saturday.
Klopp’s team themselves won’t have too many absentees with Naby Keita the only player confirmed to be out. Roberto Firmino and Robertson should already be fit enough to take part on this upcoming final.
Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Firmino remain as The Reds most potential threats. Alisson is also expected to put on a strong display so they can pick up positive result this upcoming weekend.
Head to Head Records:
The last five meetings between both teams have been in favor of Liverpool with three wins, one draw and one defeat.
Their latest matchup happened on March 31, 2019, which ended in a 2-1 victory for The Reds.
Playing in a one off final is not an easy battle to play, including for both of this teams. Liverpool will be hoping that they can get back into winning ways after losing in the final against Real Madrid.
Spurs themselves won’t be feeling any scare on Saturday as their focus is only in trying to win the trophy. The Reds might be slightly favored, but this game can easily go either way.
Final Score: 2-1
