MANILA, Philippines – As Roberto Firmino returns to training after nursing a thigh injury, expect him to provide impact once again to Liverpool’s lethal attack in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) final against Tottenham Hotspur.
In 11 games, the Brazilian international netted 4 goals in 16 attempts and made one assist in the 2018-2019 Champions League season.
Even if the 27-year-old forward sat out Liverpool’s classic 4-0 comeback over Barcelona in Anfield to book a UCL final slot, he looks to nab a place in Jurgen Klopp’s starting 11.
Liverpool is aiming for its first championship in the top-flight league in 14 years.
The match will kick off on Sunday, June 2, 3 am (Saturday, June 1, 3 pm, Madrid time). (READ: How to watch UEFA Champions League final 2019 in the Philippines) – Rappler.com
