Verstappen doesn't believe F1 can produce Champions League-style shocks

However, as we've already seen in this season's Champions League, it ain't over till it's over.

His goals, and the performances of his team-mates, are now set to bring in very welcome additional revenue for the club worth €102 million (£88 million).

"But to get to a final is an unbelievable feeling for myself and the team".

The figures for the four English clubs in the competition this season were broken down by Swiss Ramble, a football financial Twitter account.

"As it stands: #LFC €107m (€81m), #THFC €102m (€61m), #MCFC €93m (€64m), #MUFC €93m (€40m)".

Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen does not believe that Formula 1 can produce the sort of shocks that the UEFA Champions League has done in the past few days.

In the second half though, Spurs introduced striker Fernando Llorente and changed their style of play to suit the substitutes qualities as the Spaniard caused problems for the Ajax defence and created space for Lucas Moura.

Gareth Southgate has said England's hopes of winning the inaugural UEFA Nations League next month will be "complicated" by Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur reaching the Champions League final.

Trailing 1-0 from the first leg Spurs got off to the worst start possible in Amsterdam when first half goals from Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech saw them go into the interval 2-0 down on the night, 3-0 on aggregate.

Spurs clearly didn't want Liverpool to hog all of the headlines this week and chose to let Ajax have a 2-0 lead on Wednesday night and let Lucas Moura take the limelight with his hat-trick.

"We give five minutes to the masseur, physio, doctor and sports science". No country has ever produced the finalists for the Champions League and the Europa League in the same year before now. "Hopefully, the final will be as exciting as the semis". The difference was they were clinical in front of goal, we conceded and we didn't score.

Davinson Sanchez joined the aforementioned trio on the sidelines for the Ajax tie with a thigh injury and he remains absent for Sunday's game.

Compare this to the dominant period between 1977 and 1984 when an English manager lifted the European Cup seven times in eight seasons: Bob Paisley (Liverpool: 1977, 78 & 81), Brian Clough (Nottingham Forest: 1979 & 80), Tony Barton (Aston Villa: 1982), and Joe Fagan (Liverpool: 1984).
