Liverpool vs Tottenham: A great English showdown in Madrid


The two English teams will play an unpublished final in the Wanda Metropolitano on June 1.

After several seasons in which the Spanish league surpassed without much trouble the English teams in Europe, 2019 has been the year of great change. After the last five Champions League won by Real Madrid (4) and Barcelona (1), the June 1 final of the Wanda Metropolitano will be the English football party.

 Liverpool made history going back to Barcelona 3-0, while Tottenham lifted a 2-0 in 70 minutes, culminating with the goal of Moura in the 95 ‘. Both will play an unpublished final that confirms that the Premier League has raised its level considerably. Four teams came to the quarterfinals, so that finally the final is the representation of English football.


It has not been easy. The British teams have spent several years in the desert of Europe. Only the team of Jürgen Kloop reached the final in the last five years, and they have not lifted the trophy since 2012, when Chelsea was crowned in Munich. And it is a milestone to celebrate, as only Liverpool with its title in 2005 and the aforementioned Chelsea have been the only ones who have managed to raise ‘La Orejona’ since 1999 by the Premier League. And not everything ends here, since Arsenal and Chelsea itself are 90 minutes away from qualifying for the Europa League final.

After a bad season of the great dominator in Europe, a vital opportunity opened for the Catalan team. But no one could have imagined that on January 1, Pochettino’s and Kloop’s paintings would face each other on the continental throne. The resurgence of a league that has been several years in the shade, but has made the final leap to dominate the Champions League 2019.

A unique opportunity to demonstrate that the level of competitiveness of the Premier League is better than that of La Liga, who lost one member in groups, two in the round of 16 and one in the semifinals. As if it were about the 70s, England is once again at the top of Europe.

Shane Long scores fastest goal in Premier League history

Shane Long has entered the history of the Premier League on Tuesday. The Southampton striker has become the player who has scored the fastest goal in the history of the English league in its current format. The striker took six seconds to beat the Watford goalkeeper, which allows him to surpass the previous mark of Ledley King (Tottenham) of 2000 (10 seconds against Bradford).

Long took advantage of a failure of defender Cathcart to stand against Ben Foster and beat him with a precious Vaseline to give Southampton advantage on Vicarage Road.
