The dream of winning an unprecedented poker in English football is still alive, despite Saturday’s draw against Tottenham.
Overcome the commitment against Villarreal, the Champions League is parked until May 28. It will be then that Liverpool try to return the blow that Real Madrid dealt them in 2018, winning the final in kyiv 3-1 with an early injury to Salah. “It was a sad day for all of us, I think the time for revenge has come,” said the Egyptian when the poster for the Paris final was revealed.

Those of Anfield arrive in good form to this final stretch. They haven’t lost for two months and Firmino is the only casualty they drag. Although the Brazilian returned to training and could soon return to competition. They haven’t missed it too much. Diogo Jota and Luis Díaz keep alive the offensive threat of a team that aspires to everything. An aspiration that could come in handy for a Real Madrid that has already done its homework at home. With no option in the cup, but already champion of the League, Ancelotti’s men are already preparing for the continental final. It will be good for them if their opponent in said appointment continues battling for other matters with Chelsea and City. Or maybe not. Perhaps keeping this competitive mentality will help the English to be more plugged into Paris. Either way, Liverpool has no rest. Not for now.
