Liverpool Lineup Vs Tottenham: Here is how the Reds could lineup against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final.
Liverpool will take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final at Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday. The Reds defied the odds in the Semifinals of the competition by overcoming Barcelona in a spectacular fashion. Spurs, who had one half to save themselves from misery, scored three through Lucas Moura to set up an all-English affair at the capital city of Spain.

Fast forward after the Kyiv heartache, the Reds have worked remarkably to play the Champions League final again. They were on the brink of exit from the competition in the group stages, but they beat Napoli 1-0. Jurgen Klopp’s side breezed past Bayern Munich and Porto, whilst made a historic comeback against Barcelona in the knockout stages.
On the other hand, Spurs were akin to Liverpool by qualifying to the knockout stages on the final day of the group stages. They shredded Borussia Dortmund into pieces before taking on Manchester City in the last eight. The second leg proved to be a madness after the London outfit beat them on away goals. In the last four, Spurs made a historic comeback in the second half of the second leg.

Roberto Firmino missed last three of four games in all competitions in early May, but he is expected to fit for the grand finale. On the other hand, Naby Keita, who picked up an adductor injury against Barcelona in the first leg, will continue to step up his rehabilitation and has been deemed unfit for the final. The Guinean will be the only player to miss the showdown on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp does not have to eject any player through suspension.
