Having missed Tottenham’s dramatic semi-final victory over Ajax due to injury, a fit-again Harry Kane will be determined to make an impact when he returns to the side in Saturday’s Champions League final against Liverpool.

The England international has hit 14 goals in 18 matches in this competition and is Spurs’ 27/5 (6.40) favourite with 888Sport to open the scoring at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Considering he has scored five times in nine previous appearances against Jurgen Klopp’s men, he seems excellent value at 2/1 (3.00) anytime odds to underline his worth with a massive goal in Madrid.

Kane’s return probably means Son Heung-min will revert to a supporting role, with the South Korea international a longer 11/4 (3.75) shot to add to his impressive 20-goal haul for the campaign.

The hat-trick hero in that epic comeback against Ajax in the semis, Lucas Moura is priced at 3/1 (4.00) to steal the headlines once again with another big European performance.

At the other end of the pitch, Mohamed Salah will be desperate to banish the memories of last season’s crushing Champions League final disappointment.

The Egyptian star was famously forced off through injury early on in the Reds’ defeat against Real Madrid 12 months ago, but is the 4/1 (5.00) favourite to put that behind him with the opener or 7/5 (2.40) with an anytime goal.

Sadio Mane grabbed Liverpool’s only goal in that 3-1 defeat and has scored 10 of his 14 Champions League goals in the knockout stages, making him a tempting 31/20 (2.55) bet to prove the man for the big occasion yet again.

Like Kane, Roberto Firmino will be looking to hit the ground running after finishing the league season on the sidelines due to injury, and is available at 11/5 (3.20) to add to his 15 goals in 22 Champions League starts by scoring against Tottenham for the third encounter in three this campaign.
