Liverpool: Spurs matches the ‘toughest games we’ve played’
Liverpool’s star fullbacks have different takes on how last season’s final in Kiev affects Saturday’s match in Madrid, but they agree on one thing: The opposition is a huge challenge.
Many have installed the Reds as favorites to win the European Cup against Tottenham Hotspur, but both Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold remember the dogfights against Spurs this season.

Liverpool won both battles 2-1 but walked away with plenty of respect for the defeated North London side. Here’s Robertson, from the BBC:
Alexander-Arnold said it’s going to be a tactical battle and “very difficult for both sides.”
But when it comes to what the 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in 2017-18 does for the club, well, the boys are at odds.
Robertson claims last season’s loss is “irrelevant,” though he admitted the players can use that experience (so perhaps not entirely irrelevant, Andrew).
Alexander-Arnold, on the other hand, sees it as fuel.
