And after a very long time, the Champions League final will an all-English affair.
Liverpool outclassed Barcelona in the semis, winning the two-legged tie 4-3 as they beat the La Liga 4-0 at Anfield.
On the other hand, Spurs who had failed to sign a single new player during the past two transfer windows beat Spurs in sensational fashion.
Spurs won the semi-final on away goals as Pochettino’s men thumped three goals past Ajax away from home.
While most people are placing their bets on Liverpool winning the Champions League this season but given the kind of heart and courage that Spurs have shown, it is not advisable to write them off.
And now to add more glamour to the final in Madrid, UEFA have announced a sensational opening ceremony.
The governing body of football in Europe released a statement in which they confirmed that US alternative rock band Imagine Dragons will be the guest stars of UEFA Champions League final.
The band who had made hits like, Radioactive and Believer will perform before the Champions League final kicks off.
