Jose Mourinho believes there is no clear favorite between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur to win the Champions League and that teams may have to be separated by penalty kicks. Liverpool booked their place in Madrid on 1 June, making up for their 3-0 deficit in the first leg against Barcelona, while a Lucas Moura hat trick in the second half in Amsterdam allowed the Spurs to return Ajax.
Mourinho said the two teams would have trouble qualifying for the final after losing their first leg and are now wary of the prediction but expect a fascinating match between two teams that know each other well. Final is coming soon so get your tickets for the champions league final.
Asked for his prediction, Mourinho told Russia Today: ‘I don’t know anymore! This week of football, it destroyed everyone that tried to predict. It’s so, so hard. What can I say? I say that both of them have an incredible opportunity, and both of them come to the final with that feeling of, “we are unbeatable, we made the impossible be possible”.
“So I think both of them go with an incredibly positive state of mind. Two teams from the same country are something that, from my personal point of view, I do not really like. And I think the pressure level is higher for someone to lose and make a team from the same country a European champion. Liverpool would prefer to play against Ajax and Tottenham would prefer against Barcelona.
“Anything can really happen. Nobody knows Liverpool better than a manager who works in the Premier League. Nobody knows Tottenham better than a manager who works in the Premier League. You can study, you can spend the next two or three weeks trying to reduce this unpredictability, but people who work in the same country, who follow the team week after week, know everything about them. “I think the Spurs are going to bring back Harry Kane. I also think that it is impossible for Mauricio [Pochettino] to leave Lucas Moura outside. Play Lucas and [Heung-min] His or just play Lucas and leave him out, but I think it would be really hard for Mauricio to leave Lucas out.
