EXCITEMENT is mounting in the countdown to the 9pm kick off of the UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham in Madrid.
Fans are heading into the Wanda Metropolitano stadium and many others without tickets are making do with enjoying the football dominated atmosphere in the Spanish capital, all of them hoping to see their side clinch the title.
Liverpool is looking to win its sixth Champions League after losing to Real Madrid in last year’s final. But the Reds finished two places above Spurs in the Premier League.
“This year we learned a lot,” Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said at a press conference on Friday.
If Tottenham beat Klopp’s team it will be the first time the London side wins the competition and the first trophy for Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.
