Last night, Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 in the Champions League final at Wanda Metropolitano. Goals by Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi have brought the trophy to the Reds for the sixth time.

On the contrary, it is the first time Spurs have ever been to the final of the most prestigious European tournament.

London clubs have not been honoured by playing in the final games of the competition very often.

For the very first time, it happened in 2006 when Arsenal were defeated 2-1 by Barcelona at Stade de France.

Then, Chelsea’s turn came up. In 2008, at the Luzhniki Stadium, the Blues lost to Man United in a very dramatic fashion, with John Terry’s infamous slip in the penalty shootout.

In 2012, however, they finally prevailed, beating Bayern Munich on the hostile ground on penalties as well. It capped an unlikely path to the title which featured a change of manager in the middle of it.

The achievement of the team led by Roberto Di Matteo is unique not only for Chelsea, but also for all the clubs from the English capital.
With Tottenham losing to the Reds, nothing changes in this respect.
