Premier League Teams To Headline Europa League And Champions League Simultaneously For First Time Ever

Premier League teams will simultaneously headline both the Champions League and Europa League finals for the first time in history.

Liverpool made a remarkable comeback on Tuesday night by thrashing Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to overcome a first-leg 3-0 deficit in the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur would take a page out of the Reds' book and thwart Champions League dark horses Ajax from reaching the final, with a Lucas-inspired hat-trick on Wednesday night at the Johan Cruyff Arena completing their comeback and knocking the Eredivisie side out of the competition.

With the stage set for the Champions League, both Arsenal and Chelsea progressed to the Europa League final after defeating semi-final opponents Valencia and Eintracht Frankfurt respectively.
