England – Premier League
Match start: 17:00 (GMT+1)
On last Wednesday the names of the football teams of the final match of the Champions League were determined (Real Madrid-Juventus). On Thursday we have learnt the names of the challengers for the 22nd last berth to the main net of the European Champion Clubs' Cup that is given to the new winner of the Europa League for 3 years in a row.
So, on the 24th of May, Wednesday in Stockholm will be held the final match between two most popular clubs of the English and Holland football. Naturally, these are Manchester United and Ajax.
After the final semifinal winning of the Mancunians over the Spanish Celta (2:1) the head coach of United José Mourinho had officially declared about the aims of his team during the final part of the current season.
And now it is quite clear that during three last matches of the championship of EPL with Tottenham (14th of May), Southampton (17th of May) and Crystal Palace (21st of May) the main aim for the coaches of MU is to preserve the health of their leaders for a decisive Swiss battle for the berth into the Champions League. As if the team of José Mourinho wins this berth no one will remember about the current 6th position of MU.
Another mistake of Liverpool during the previous round against Southampton (0:0) before time had made Tottenham a new Vice-Champion of EPL. This is really unique situation when a new champion is not officially named and the boss of London club from White Hart Lane Mr. Daniel Levy is taking congratulations on the first Vice-Champion title for the last 54 years (1962/1963).
Is he really pleased to take them? As one week ago his team was a real challenger for the English football crown…
Calling a spade a spade, after its defeat (the 5th of May) at the Olympic Stadium to West Ham (1:0) the team of Daniel Levy has completely lost its motivation. And right now due to amazing calendar schedule the Mancunian club that is now getting ready for the decisive match of the Europa League had come to White Hart Lane.
So, what’s now? That is one of the most interesting matches of the English football. And here the best bet will be the bet on the minimal number of scored goals.
Tottenham – 1,75, draw – 4,00, Liverpool – 5,25;
tip: Both teams to score No - odds 1,95 Bet365
