◼️ The latest results of the Reds in the Premier League jeopardize the Champions League 2018/19; another reason to beat Madrid in Kiev …
Liverpool has plenty of reasons to want to prevent Real Madrid from winning the Champions League for the third time in a row. But their poor performance in the last weeks of the Premier League gives the Reds another compelling reason to keep the continental title.
Jurgen Klopp’s team, which will face the Whites in the Kiev final on 26 May, have not won in the English league since April 14, when they beat Bournemouth in Anfield. Since then, he lost seven key points in the fight to enter the Champions League next year: tied with West Bromwich and Stoke City, in addition to falling in his visit to Chelsea last weekend.
Those three punctures in a row put one of the finalists in Europe against the ropes. Liverpool had his ticket to the Champions 2018/19, but it was complicated more than advisable and now Tottenham and Chelsea are on the lookout.
Those of Klopp are, only for the moment, achieving the goal: they are third with 72 points in 37 games, behind the two Manchester clubs (94 City and 77 United). But the Spurs, with one game less (they play Tuesday against Newcastle), have 71 points. And the Blues, who also owe a match have 69.
In this way, seriously endangers the fourth place (the last one that gives access to Champions) for Liverpool, which will close its participation in the Premier receiving a Brighton And Hove who will play only for the honor. Tottenham will be left to welcome Leicester (no goals), while Chelsea will visit a Newcastle who does not fight for anything either.
