Man City v Liverpool Champions League Final still possible

Postby Amberexile » March 15th, 2019, 1:47 pm

Champions League quarter-finals draw:
Spurs v Man City,
Barca v Man Utd,
Liverpool v Porto,
Ajax v Juventus

Have the top two from a Country's league ever played each other in a Champions League final before or would that be unique if everything falls into place for it to happen?

So long ago that it might have been the Inter Cities Fairs Cup but I remember Spurs v Wolves in a European Final.

That's damn close, it was 2002-3 Milan v Juventus at Old Trafford but Milan finished third that season in the league

It was indeed long ago, 1972 and was the UEFA Cup
Spurs finished 6th and Wolves 9th that season

and Google is knackered after looking all those up for me
