Liverpool gets advantages over Tottenham from UEFA ahead of final clash

Liverpool have been handed an advantage over Tottenham ahead of their Champions League final in Madrid.

The Reds have been handed the home dressing room.

Liverpool will file out against Tottenham in a huge all-Premier League final at the Wanda Metropolitano on June 1

Liverpool were originally nominated as the away team for the game but UEFA have opted to switch things round for security reasons.

It means Liverpool will benefit from the much larger and more luxurious facilities usually awarded to the Stadium owners, Atletico Madrid.

Tottenham will now be relegated to the much smaller away dressing room.

UEFA also decided to give Liverpool fans the south side of the stadium with more Reds fans expected in Spain than their Premier League counterparts.

“Before we took our decision, we made an evaluation between the away fans, the Spanish police and the city of Madrid,” Wanda Metropolitano Stadium manager Fernado Fariza told Sky Sports News

“We took into account the number of fans of both of the finalists, the metro lines and the fan meeting points in the city.

“Taking into account all these issues, the final decision was that Liverpool fans should arrive at the south stand and they will have all their tickets in the south stand.

“On the other hand, Tottenham supporters will arrive at the north stand and they will have all their tickets in the north stand.”

Both teams have been allocated 16,613 tickets at the 68,000-capacity stadium.
