Have a look at the Premier League table. Liverpool lost just once; Tottenham Hotspur 13 times. There was a 26-point difference between the teams. Surely, then, the Champions League final should be a foregone conclusion? That's the question that Neil Fitzmaurice asks regular sidekicks Joe Rimmer and Caoimhe O'Neill to kick-off a Poetry in Motion podcast that is a must-listen for all Reds fans before the massive match in Madrid. Closer inspection of the two games between the sides that took place earlier this season should also raise confidence among Koppites - as should the experience of last year's final and, as Joe argues, the fact that the pressure should really be on Tottenham. Fitzy wonders, then, that of all the Reds' near-misses in recent seasons, would defeat on Saturday night be the toughest to take? His guests agree, but rest assured the mood is firmly upbeat, especially when you consider Spurs' selection problems, and given the fact that Harry Kane may well have undermined his manager Mauricio Pochettino. Whoever Pochettino starts up front, they are likely to face Joel Matip, who along with James Milner, comes in for big praise. But even bigger praise is reserved for Fabinho, who signed for Liverpool a year ago today. Caoimhe can't bring herself to give a score prediction, but what about Joe or Fitzy? But what they can guarantee is a warm welcome and a good night at our latest Blood Live event, the details of which are discussed at the end of the pod and which can be viewed in full HERE. Here's hoping we're celebrating number six.
