Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur clash in the final of the UEFA Champions League in Madrid on Saturday.
The Reds are playing their second consecutive final in the competition, though this time they come in as clear favorites; Jurgen Klopp's side suffered a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid last season. Their path to the final included an incredibly impressive comeback against Barcelona, turning a 3-0 deficit into a 4-3 aggregate win.
On the other hand, Spurs' journey to their first-ever Champions League final is nothing short of a roller coaster. After being placed in arguably the group of death, the North London club were on the brink of an early exit, as they just managed to accumulate just one point after three matches. However, Mauricio Pochettino's men registered seven more in the remaining three and qualified ahead of Serie A side Inter Milan because of a better head-to-head record.
Then at the quarter-final stage, Spurs were up against fiery Manchester City, where in the second leg they were saved by VAR as Raheem Sterling's stoppage-time winner was ruled out because Sergio Aguero was offside. If that drama was not enough, they made one of the best comebacks in the history of the competition, scoring three goals in the second-half of the second-leg during the semi-final against Ajax, with Lucas Moura scoring the winner in the 96th minute.
In the previous 44 meetings between both teams, Liverpool have won 20 times versus Spurs' 12.
