By the time the Champions League and Europa League second leg semi-finals had been played bragging rights were firmly with the EPL.

For the first time in the history of Eurpoean club competitions 4 clubs from one nation will feature in both European cup finals.

Champions League

Tottenham Hotspur followed Liverpol's lead in their Champions League 2nd leg away fixture by turning round what seemed like an impossible position to reach the final.

They did so by conceding two first half goals allowing Ajax to lead 3-0 on aggregate at half time. Then a Lucas Moura hat-trick, completed in the 96th minute, ensured Spurs won on away goals.

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur face each other in the final at Atletico Madrid's stadium on 1st June 2019.

Europa League

Not to be undone, Arsenal made light work of their 2nd leg tie away to Valencia with a 2-4 win on the night (3-7) on aggregate. With an Aubameyang hat-trick. 

Chelsea's 2nd leg semi-final ended with a penalty shoot out, which Chelsea won 4-3, with Hazard scoring the winning penalty.

The final takes place on 29th May 2019 in Baku Azerbaijan.
