The UEFA Champions League final is here, with Liverpool and Tottenham set to do battle at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, Spain. Kick-off is scheduled for 5am (AEST) on Sunday, June 2.
The Champions League is widely considered as the biggest club football competition in the world, with Europe’s best clubs competing across the course of the year, first through a group stage, then in knockout matches to be crowned the champion.
Liverpool staged a dramatic comeback to make the final against Barcelona. After dropping the first leg of their semi-final 3-0, they came back to win the second leg 4-0 at Anfield.
Tottenham were also involved in a monumental comeback to set up the all-English final against Ajax. Dropping the first leg 1-0 and being behind 2-0 in the second, they ran on three unanswered goals, including a 96th-minute winner to make the biggest club football match of the year.
