All Four European Finalists Have Lost To Wolverhampton Wanderers This Season

For the first time in history, all four finalists in the two European finals are English sides but even more shockingly, every one of those sides have been beaten by the mighty Wolverhampton Wanderers this season.

After producing incredible comebacks in Champions League semi-final second legs, Liverpool and Tottenham will play out the final at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano on June 1.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Chelsea set up a second all-English final having beaten Valencia and Frankfurt respectively in the Europa League semis last night.

But we're in all agreement that it's Nuno Espirito Santo's boys that are the best team in European football given their results against the four finalists.

They beat both Arsenal and Spurs 3-1 home away from home, bested Chelsea at home and drew away as well as running out 2-0 winners over Liverpool in the FA Cup third round at Molineux.

Wolves still have to play title-chasing Liverpool at Anfield on what could be a dramatic final day of the Premier League season.

Another mad stat that has come about in regards to the Champions League final, is the fact that both Gini Wijnaldum and Moussa Sissoko will be lining up opposite one another three years on from being relegated with Newcastle.
