Fresh from picking up a trophy of their own, the Squawka Talker returns to make their predictions for the showpiece all-English European finals.

Will Dele beat Lampard and Gerrard to another record? Is Alexander-Arnold's Marcelo impression going to be enough to unleash Liverpool's own Didier Drogba? Will Lucas Moura be the man to finally dribble past Virgil van Dijk?

There's also Europa League predictions involving some carefully crafted theories including Petr Cech, Eden Hazard and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. As well as a review of the Playoffs, Copa del Rey final and bonkers Serie A finale.
