Stats: Why Liverpool is the UCL final favorite

Stats: Why Klopp's Liverpool is the favorite to beat Tottenham in UCL final

May 31, 2019 By Ali M.
The Reds will take on Tottenham in Madrid in the highly-anticipated final and the numbers back Klopp's men triumphing.

The Champions League final is upon us. Liverpool and Tottenham are gearing up for a highly-anticipated showdown on Saturday, with the victorious team set to be crowned the champions of Europe.

Both sides overcame the odds to book their ticket to Madrid. The Reds came back from 3-0 down and won 4-0 at Anfield -- 4-3 on aggregate -- without Salah and Firmino to knock out Barcelona. Spurs, on the other hand, performed two miracles to make the final, first eliminating Man City and then fighting back from 3-0 down on aggregate to eliminate Ajax in the penultimate round.

However, despite the wonders performed by Pochettino's men, the numbers favor a triumph for the Merseyside giant this weekend. Here are the stats that favor Salah and Co. winning the Champions League.

Liverpool's record against Tottenham

First is the elephant in the room: Liverpool has a far more superior head-to-head record against Tottenham. In their 170 encounters, the Merseyside giant emerged triumphant a whopping 79 times, losing 48 times.

Klopp's record against Spurs

Klopp has crossed paths with Pochettino's men on nine occasions since arriving in Merseyside. It should be noted that the German boss has lost only once against Tottenham back in October 2017, winning four and drawing the remaining four.

The one and only time these two sides met in Europe

Their only previous European showdown came in the 1972-73 UEFA Cup semi-final. Surprise, surprise; Liverpool knocked out the north London outfit, albeit on away goals after a 2-2 draw, before lifting the title.

The one and only time these two sides met in a final

These two teams have locked horns in a major final only once before and that was in the 1982 English League Cup final. England's second most successful club came from behind to win 3-1.

And finally, Pochettino's leaky defense

The 17 goals that Vertonghen and Co. have conceded is the highest in this season's Champions League. Factor in that Liverpool have had nine different goalscorers this term, second-best to only Porto (10), and Hugo Lloris could be in for a busy night.
