It may have been good news for Tottenham Hotspur in Amsterdam but our traders aren’t predicting much joy for the North Londoners in the Champions League Final next month.
Both clubs have enjoyed remarkable journeys to reach the final. So much so that 35/1 was the price on offer for both teams to reach the final prior to the semi-final second-leg matches.
One plucky punter had even more reason to celebrate after backing Tottenham hero Lucas Moura to score a hat-trick against Ajax at 100/1 with a £10 stake.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “What a week it’s been for English sides in Europe. Having both completed incredible comebacks, it’s Liverpool who’ll head to Madrid as clear favourites to lift the trophy.”
