2019 UEFA Champions League Final

Coming up on June 1, the finale of the 2019 UEFA Champions League is set to take place at the Estadio Metropolitano in Madrid. Two of this year’s top clubs, Tottenham Hotspurs will face Liverpool to compete for all the glory. Liverpool punched their ticket to the final after defeating Barcelona 4-0 in a very unlikely matchup. Liverpool was down in the deficit prior to the game but capitalized behind two goals from Divcock Origi. Tottenham also showed perseverance to get to the final, after finding themselves behind 2-0 at halftime, the Spurs and Lucas Moura notched three straight goals to book their trip to Madrid. Estadio Metropolitano, this year’s venue, is home of Atletico Madrid and has a capacity of over 63,000. The stadium was recently built in 2017 and is located north-east of downtown Madrid. In the 2018 edition of the Champions League Final, Real Madrid recorded their third straight final appearance with a win over Liverpool by a score of 3-1. This year Liverpool is back in that very same position, but a powerful Tottenham club could leave them empty-handed yet again.

Whale Insight on the Road to Madrid

In an absolute thriller in the second leg, semifinal matchup between Barcelona and Liverpool, the Reds were able to overcome a 3-0 goal deficit and put four goals behind Barcelona’s defence. Goals were spread amongst two of the Red’s players; Divcock Origi (7’, 79’) and Georginio Wijnaldum (54’, 56’). Wijnaldum’s two goals, back to back, early in the second half gave his club the momentum they needed to persevere. This year, Liverpool is closing out a tremendous season sitting at 37 wins and 29 losses, only second in winning percentage behind Manchester City.

Ajax Amsterdam and Tottenham Hotspurs met in another exciting match in the second leg. Ajax went into the game with a 3-2 aggregate lead over the Hotspurs. After going up 2-0 in the first half, Ajax was countered with Tottenham scoring two goals (55’, 59’) early in the second half. In extra time, the hero of the night, Lucas Moura struck one into the back of the net to send Tottenham to their first UEFA Champions League Final. Moura played one of the best performances football fans have seen all season, scoring all three goals for his team and pulling off the upset against Ajax Amsterdam. The match score 2-3 tied the aggregate at 3-3 but the Spurs were able to come out with the victory on away goals. This Champions League Final is poised to be a fantastic matchup. With Harry Kane likely returning to the pitch for Tottenham and Liverpool’s consistent offence, a lot is in store for June 1st.
