Tottenham fans will be surprised by the overwhelming number of Liverpool fans in the Wanda Metropolitano tomorrow night.
That’s the opinion of Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.
The Reds will face their Premier League rivals Tottenham in the Champions League finals at the 67,829 capacity stadium in the Spanish capital.
It will be Merseyside’s second Champions League final in a row as Klopp’s men will be hoping to win this time after having lost to Real Madrid in Ukraine.
But Carragher thinks Liverpool will be backed by a large contingent in Madrid, with both sides officially handed 16,000 seats of the stadium’s capacity.
And while this will be Spurs first ever European Cup showpiece, the former defender thinks Tottenham will be shocked to see the massive gathering of Liverpool fans who will be inside the arena before the kick-off.
Carragher told The Anfield Wrap: “There isn’t anyone I know who isn’t going. I think what helps is that it’s not a bad place to get to, before [the previous finals] you think of Athens, Istanbul, Kiev – not the easiest place to get to.
“I think Tottenham are going to get a mighty shock, their supporters, and see how many Liverpool fans are there.
“I don’t think they’ll be expecting this.
“I’m sure there’ll be a lot of Tottenham fans travelling and rightly so, first European Cup final.
The Red’s fans played a massive part in the Liverpool’s road to the final as the atmosphere at the Anfield helped Jurgen Klopp’s team to win 4-0 on aggregate over Barcelona in the second leg of the semifinal clash, after being 3-0 down in the first leg.
So, Liverpool and Tottenham fans are waiting for the fixture and would be hoping for their club’s to win Europe’s prestigious club competition. The Merseyside club Liverpool will be looking to win their first European cup with Klopp while Tottenham’s first European final.
