One day to go - one day until Liverpool could be crowned Premier League champions. Yes, the ball remains very much in Manchester City's court, but if Tuesday night at Anfield proved anything, it's that miracles do happen, especially when it comes to the Reds. It's fitting, then, that the latest Allez Les Rouges podcast, hosted by Peter Hooton, and featuring Kieth Culvin, Spirit of Shankly chair Joe Blott, and the ECHO's own Dan Kay, kicks off by looking back on the truly incredible win over Barcelona, which sealed Liverpool's place in the Champions League final for the second season running. But where did it stand in the long list of great European nights? And what must happen next if it is to surpass Istanbul? As well as the atmosphere, there are words of praise for Jurgen Klopp's man-management and tactical nous, so much so that they even had Jose Mourinho impressed, the bravery and maturity of Jordan Henderson, and the unlikely rise and rise of Joel Matip and Divock Origi. The showpiece showdown with Tottenham Hotspur is discussed, as is the outrageous prices fans will have to pay to get a ticket for the final and to get to and stay in Madrid, and what can be done about it in the future. And after the first 30 minutes fly by, talk turns to the last-day Premier League title decider. It's City's to lose, but if the defending champions do indeed retain their crown, the panel are in doubt that this will be the first season of many that Klopp's resurgent Reds challenge for the top prize in English football. That said, they're not ruling out more incredible drama, especially if Liverpool do one thing against Wolves. Enjoy our final podcast before the match - it's a cracker.
