Two all-English football finals, but how English are the teams?

Lucas Moura Tottenham Ajax Champions League

Tottenham midfielder Lucas Moura couldn't hold back his tears watching a Brazilian replay of his Champions League semifinal late-game heroics against Ajax on Wednesday.

Recent wins and successes go out the window as a well-thought out match plan and an opponent that seems to have all their weaknesses exploited are what make a historical night as we have seen at Anfield when Liverpool defeated Barcelona 4-0.

It ended Ajax's fairytale run in the Champions League, having upstaged holders Real Madrid and Juventus en route to the final four and star defender De Ligt rued what could have been for the Eredivisie side.

In no other European League are you guaranteed to have clubs in the Europa League with such massive finances, so whoever of the six misses out each season on Champions League qualification via the Premier League, will be going all out to win the Europa League.

The final four of the Champions League earn £10.3m in prize money per club.

"Sometimes you think, 'oh, this manager is a nice guy, this manager has a nice relation with the players, oh the players they like the manager'. We know there's the final still to come so we've got to take it all in and prepare for that".

"We said we had 45 minutes to give everything". It's like one that game is decisive for the rest of the championship.

The 34-year-old was signed from Swansea back in 2017 but has only scored twice in the Premier League since. The possibilities for the future are endless.

Tottenham's path to the final is even more remarkable when you consider that they were matched at [680.0] on the Exchange in the Champions League Winner market after collecting just one point from their first three group stage games.

This is their third consecutive Champions League campaign.

Kane has been sidelined with an ankle injury since last month's quarterfinal first leg against Manchester City.

The German manager will be looking to ready his team for the final, as they come up against the North London club in what will be a thrilling match.

"You can not be measured against the big sides, we have been competing throughout the season with good and bad moments".

Frank Rejwan, Managing Director at Travel Republic, said: "For the next three weeks there will be little respite from gloating Spurs and Liverpool fans at work, in the pub and every time people turn on the radio or open a paper".
