Of course, if you want to keep up with Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool, the OneFootball app will have live updates and stats throughout the game. Liverpool have participated in the European Cup or Champions League 23 times, winning five titles, and have been runners-up a further three times; UEFA ranks them as 8th in the all-time European Cup or Champions League standings. They have also won the UEFA Cup three times and finished second in 2015-16. Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, are ranked 73rd with five European Cup or Champions League participations and no titles. However, Spurs were the first British club to win a major European competition, taking the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1963; they also won the UEFA Cup in 1972, the competition’s first year of existence, and again in 1984. That first UEFA Cup win was again an all-English affair, with Spurs seeing off Wolverhampton Wanderers across two legs 3-2.

While that might be considered a good omen, the following season Liverpool won the UEFA Cup, beating Spurs on away goals in the semi-finals, the only time prior to this season’s Champions League finals when the two teams have met in European competition. Jurgen Klopp will be contesting his third Champions League final – he finished runner-up with Borussia Dortmund in 2012-13 and with Liverpool last season, losing to Real Madrid. His only other European final again finished in defeat, as Liverpool finished runners-up in the Europa League to Sevilla. He’s currently the joint 15th coach for overall dugout appearances in the competition with 60, tied with Vincete de Bosque Diego Simeone. Mauricio Pochettino has, of course, never featured in a European final as a player or coach, though he has won a domestic cup competition as a player, winning the Copa del Rey twice with Espanyol. Only European-born coaches have won the Champions League, although two non-European bosses won the European Cup twice and both were, like Pochettino, from Argentina: Luis Carniglia with Real Madrid in 1958 and 1959, and Helenio Herrera with Inter Milan in 1964 and 1965. In the Champions League era, two non-European managers have guided teams to the final twice each, and both have lost both times; Hector Cuper took Valencia to consecutive finals defeats in 2000 and 2001, including a loss to German manager Ottmar Hitzfeld’s Bayern Munich; Diego Simeone took Atletico Madrid to two all-Spanish finals in 2014 and 2016 and lost both. Of course, Cuper and Simeone are both from Argentina. Between 1997 and 2002, only the 2000 final didn’t see a German coach; in total, a German-coached side has won the Champions League four times, and lost a further five, including the all-German coached final of 2013 – two of these losses were under Klopp himself. Jupp Heynckes is the only German coach to manage a team from another league to a Champions League win so far, steering Real Madrid to the title in 1998. Indeed, of the four coaches in the Champions League era to have won the competiton with two different teams, two are German, including Heynckes: Remarkably, if Klopp wins, he will become only the second coach in the Champions League era to win the title having first lost a final – Fabio Capello was beaten in 1993 as coach of AC Milan by Raymond Goethals’ Marseille, but won the following year with AC Milan against Johan Cruyff’s Barcelona. And the youngest Champions League winning coach? Pep Guardiola, who was just 38 years and 129 days when he guided Barcelona to the title in 2009, and who was put out this season by Pochettino. Three of the five youngest European Cup champions are from the Ajax side of 1995: Nwankwo Kanu Patrick Kluivert Iker Casillas Clarence Seedorf Carlos Alberto.

Should he appear and Liverpool win, Rhian Brewster would displace Carlos Alberto by over 100 days. More impressively, but perhaps less likely, Spurs’ Oliver Skipp could be a Champions League winner aged just 18 years, eight months, and 16 days – that would make him the youngest winner, should he feature and Spurs take the title. Interestingly, Seedorf is also the only player to win it with three different clubs: Ajax in 1995, Real Madrid in 1998, and AC Milan twice, in 2003 and 2007. Neither side is replete with Champions League experience. Only Spurs’ Hugo Lloris and Lucas Moura have over 50 Champions League appearances to their name, both turning out for French sides in the competition before moving to north London. Mohamed Salah has 21 Champions League goals, the most of any player appearing in the final. Next is Roberto Firmino with 15. Of course, Liverpool’s top scorer in Champions League games overall is Steven Gerrard, who amassed 30, the highest of any pure midfielder (as opposed to winger or attacking midfielder) in the competition’s history. Spurs’ highest scorer in Son Heung-Min, with 14, five of which were scored back in 2014/15 for Bayer Leverkusen. Interestingly, if Hugo Lloris lifts the Champions League trophy, he will become only the fourth captain to do so not of the same nationality as the team he leads. Peter Schmeichel captained Manchester United to the win in 1999, while Fernando Redondo was the on-field captain for Real Madrid in 2000 and Javier Zanetti skippered Inter Milan in 2010. Lloris would be the third goalkeeper, after Schmeichel and Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas to lift the Champions League. Both Liverpool’s captain and vice-captain are, of course, English.
