The showpiece event of European soccer is an all-English affair this season, as Liverpool and Tottenham go head-to-head in the Champions League final on Saturday in Madrid, Spain.

It's 11 years since two Premier League clubs have contested the final of club soccer's most prestigious prize and both teams pulled off near-impossible feats to reach the final. Having lost the first leg of the semifinal against Barcelona 3-0, Liverpool produced a memorable comeback at Anfield, thrashing the Spanish champions to reach a second consecutive final.

Spurs also trailed going into the second leg after losing 1-0 at home to Ajax, but came from behind to win 3-2 in Amsterdam, thanks to a Lucas Moura goal deep into injury time.

However, while both sides arrived in the final in dramatic fashion, their pedigree at this level couldn't be more different. In their ninth European Cup final, Liverpool are looking for a sixth trophy, while Spurs have never played in a Champions League final before.

Team news

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will make a last minute decision over Harry Kane, who has not played since April 9, when he damaged his ankle ligaments in the first leg of the quarter-finals against Manchester City.

However, the England captain has traveled to Madrid and said earlier this week he was ready to play if called upon.

"I started to feel my way back with the team at the end of last week," Kane, who scored 24 goals in all competitions this season, told the BBC.

"This week now is to get the fitness as high as possible.

"Then it's down to the manager. The manager will assess it and decide whether I'm ready to go or not but, so far, I feel good and ready."

Liverpool, meanwhile, has injuries problems of its own as Jurgen Klopp will be without Naby Keita. The Guinean midfielder suffered an adductor injury in the first leg of the semifinal against Barcelona and earlier this week Klopp admitted he would not be available

However, Roberto Firmino is set to make his return against Spurs. The Brazilian forward missed the last four games with a groin injury but he's fully recovered.

"Bobby [Firmino] was part of training last week and will be a part again tomorrow and he's looking good so he will be part of the final I'm sure," Klopp was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
