Who will win the Champions League final: Liverpool or Tottenham?
Down 3-0 to Lionel Messi and one of the most powerful sports teams in the entire world, no one gave Liverpool a chance to win. They were without Mohamad Salah and Roberto Firmino, two of their top players, and two former Liverpool players, Luis Suarez and Coutinho, were extra-motivated to silence Anfield. But the Reds proved no matter the odds, they were going to fight until the very end.
Liverpool mounted one of the greatest comebacks in Champions League history, scoring four goals to advance to the final. Without Salah and Firmino, the Reds leaned on lesser known role players Divock Origi, Georginio Wijnaldum and Trent Alexander-Arnold. If Liverpool has this kind of talent, depth and grit, there is no way Tottenham, who has only won once against the Reds in its last 14 tries, will win.
Throw the past matchups out the window. This is a one-and-done final where anything can happen. And after roaring back against Ajax's stingy defense, Tottenham has what it takes to beat Liverpool.
When it comes to championship games, anyone can be the hero. Just ask Lucas Moura.
The Brazilian national stepped up on the biggest stage in the biggest moment. He scored all three goals to send the Spurs to the Champions League Final, including the game-winning goal in the final seconds of stoppage time. That kind of momentum goes a long way, and they have that belief they can beat anyone in the world.
"Spursy" is dead. Tottenham is going to win the Champions League.
