Can this just be the match hype and build up thread with the main Matchday thread created closer to the date?

Just easier to look back... It's bound to become a messy 10 pages long before the day so will be cool to have that fresh crisp thread there for lineups and kickoff.

One of those ones where common sense tells you Liverpool but Spurs are no mugs, especially if they get Kane back. Genuinely can’t call it

Fun fact. This will be the first Champions league final of the 21st century where neither finalist has won a league title inside that century. 😶

The irony if Arsenal win the Europa League but than Spurs win the Champions League two days later :ph34r:

Liverpool will win this.

When clubs from the same country have played each other in the CL final, the most prestigious club of the two have always come on top (Real vs Valencia in 2000; AC Milan vs Juventus in 2003; Man Utd vs Chelsea in 2008; Bayern vs Dortmund in 2013; and Real vs Atlético Madrid, in 2014 and 2016), and I expect no differently here.

Tottenham have done well, but they are the Monaco of this decade's CL.

Champions League final: Damir Skomina to referee Spurs v Liverpool

Slovenia's Damir Skomina will referee the all-English Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool.

The 42-year-old awarded Manchester United a controversial late penalty in their last-16 victory over Paris St-Germain in March.

PSG forward Neymar was later given a three-match ban after he called the decision "a disgrace" on social media.

The Champions League final takes place at Estadio Metropolitano in Madrid on Saturday, 1 June at 20:00 BST.

Skomina was in charge when United beat Ajax in the 2017 Europa League final as well as the Uefa Super Cup match between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid five years earlier.

He was the fourth official at the 2013 Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich and has been the referee in four of the competition's matches this season, including Liverpool's 1-0 win over Napoli which secured a place in the knockout stage.

He will be assisted in the final by his compatriots Jure Praprotnik and Robert Vukan. The fourth official will be Antonio Mateu Lahoz from Spain.

The video assistant referee role has been assigned to Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands, who will be supported by countryman Pol van Boekel, plus German officials Felix Zwayer, and Mark Borsch.

Italian referee Gianluca Rocchi will take charge of Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal in Baku on 29 May.

Should have moved it to Villa Park, kept the 16K allocations each and save on the travelling.

Sounds like we expect Firmino to be fit. He won't have started a game in over a month though come 1st June. From what I was reading Liverpool might arrange a behind closed doors friendly in the run up to the final

5 years ago if you said these two were in a final against one another you would have assumed it was the League Cup.

Eh?

They played a friendly against New England Revolution in USA, full-strength squad and Loftus-Cheek ended up getting injured.

Just think it's pretty stupid to fly all that way just to play a friendly when you've got a big game coming up and risk losing key players...

Ah right. Yeah I wouldn't agree with that because that doesn't have the manager or players needs as a priority. I wouldn't be against a behind closed doors friendly for those who might need the minutes though. Three weeks is a long time to wait to play the final

Champions League final: Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino avoids touchline ban

Mauricio Pochettino has avoided a touchline ban for Tottenham's Champions League final against Liverpool.

The Spurs manager has been given a one-match ban linked to the delayed start of the semi-final first leg with Ajax, but his suspension has been deferred for a probation period of one year.

Spurs have also been fined 10,000 euros (£8,758) for the incident.

The club has also been fined 5,000 euros for a pitch invasion in their quarter-final with Manchester City.

Managers of both clubs are held responsible if a Champions League game does not start on time, regardless of the circumstances, and it is the second time it has happened to Tottenham this season.

One question for the ticket holders on this forum (regardless of the club). If for example i have a friend who is a season ticket holder, and he can't make it for any reason. Can he sell me his ticket for the final and would the club regard it as illegal? Also not taking anything from what Stan posted above.

I think it really all boils down to how the ticket is sold. If its put up for auction based on who is the highest bidder then I can see that being an issue but if you've got a ticket from a friend I can't see how they'd ever be able to track that?

As long as it's for face value of the ticket or less then it wouldn't be considered illegal. Some clubs, including Liverpool, have ticket collections on the day of the game for away games in Europe for a select number of tickets and the person collecting must be the name on the ticket and ID. This is just to stop people buying the ticket and not travelling but claiming the credit/loyalty points for future games.

Trent Alexander-Arnold will make history should he start the Champions League final.

If selected in Liverpool’s XI in Madrid, the right-back would become the first ever player aged under 21 to start consecutive finals in Europe’s premier club competition.

The previous youngest to do so was Christian Panucci with AC Milan in 1994 and 1995. The former Italy international was 22 while playing in the latter showpiece versus AFC Ajax.

Alexander-Arnold, meanwhile, does not turn 21 until October.
