Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool will face off in the Champions League final on June 1 in what is the biggest game of the season for both clubs.
The Reds narrowly missed out on the Premier League title and will be determined to make up for that in Madrid, while Spurs would love to defy the odds.
It promises to be a memorable encounter, and only one of Jurgen Klopp or Mauricio Pochettino can win their first piece of silverware at their respective clubs.
It could be that the final carries extra significance, with Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez reportedly a target for both teams.
Tuttomercatoweb report that Spurs’ interest is ‘strong’, while Liverpool are a ‘dangerous rival’ in the pursuit.
Whoever wins the final in Madrid will instantly become an even more attractive proposition for the top players.
There is the classic case of Eden Hazard, who announced his transfer to Champions League winners Chelsea in 2012 having been heavily linked with both Manchester City and Manchester United.
The fact that Gomez has been linked with both Spurs and Liverpool gives the final something extra.
The Uruguayan is hot property having reached the 30-goal mark in La Liga for Celta, and he has drawn comparisons to fellow countryman Luis Suarez in the past.
He will surely be an interested spectator and his future may well be shaped by the result of the game.
