Former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness says the Reds will win their sixth European Cup in Madrid in a few week’s time.
His reasoning is very simple: Jurgen Klopp has better players at his disposal than Mauricio Pochettino does with Tottenham.
Having beaten Barcelona, the Reds will fancy themselves against anyone, and certainly are going into the game as favourites.
According to Virgin Media Sports, Souness said: “For Klopp, it’ll be all about the games in the last few years [final defeats]. For Pochettino, it’s all about reminding them about how close they were.
“The last two games that have been Anfield, when Spurs have gone there, this season and last season, Spurs were unlucky on both occasions. But Liverpool will win it. They have better players, simple as.”
He’s not wrong: going into the final weekend of the Premier League season, there are 24 points between the sides in the league table. Spurs have lost 13 games in the league to the Reds’ one, and Klopp’s players have won both of the last two meetings by two goals to one.
The Reds also have the experience of last season’s Champions League run under their belt.
After the pain of last year’s final, it’s been another incredible journey this season. Hopefully, there are even more incredible moments to come, beginning, of course, with this weekend and the conclusion of the Premier League title race.
