It is no news that Liverpool are one of the most successful teams in the elite competition and are favourites to win the competition again since 2006.

2. History favours the Reds

The Anfield giants have won five of their previous European Cup finals, having lost to AC Milan in the 2006-07 and Madrid in the 2017-18 in their last two finals.

But against Mauricio Pochettino's side, last season's experience may count for Liverpool's quest for a sixth title.

3. Quality of teams Liverpool have met enroute to the finals

Tottenham have been given the credit for beating a giant-killing side like Ajax, who knocked out Real Madrid and Juventus. But Spurs have only managed to beat a Man City side who have been struggling to go past an English side in the competition.

However, Liverpool's journey seemed over when they lost 0-3 to tournament favourites, Barcelona despite being the better side at the Camp Nou. But scored four goals in the second leg which has been regarded as the biggest comeback in history. They also knocked out Bayern Munich on their road to the final.
