Tottenham Hotspur endured heartbreak at the weekend as they lost 2-0 to Liverpool in their first ever Champions League final.
The loss was even harder to swallow for Spurs fans after they watched their team dominate the possession, shots, and shots on target stats through the final.
However, Tottenham were unable to convert time on the ball into chances in front of goal, and eventually succumbed to a second place finish.
No trophy, less prize money, no name in the history books, there are few positives to take from a loss in the final of club football’s biggest competition.
However, by losing to Liverpool in Madrid, Spurs at least avoided forced participation in the Club World Cup next season.
The club world cup is an annual competition involving the champions of six continents, with the Champions League winners entering at the semi-final stage.
While this doesn’t sound too bad, it becomes a real pain once you realise the competition is held in December, in the middle of the season, and over 3,000 miles away in Dubai (BBC).
Spurs Web Opinion:
The tiniest of silver linings for Tottenham; at least they will be able to concentrate on their main four competitions next season. Who knows, Liverpool jetting off to Dubai to play in the Club World Cup could somehow play into Tottenham’s hands in the Premier League, you never know. I just want to see Spurs win something next season, even if it’s just a League Cup to get things rolling.
