Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool - UEFA Champions League FinalImagine Dragons perform before the UEFA Champions League Final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on June 01, 2019 in Madrid, Spain.

It's highly, highly unlikely that come the 2020 Istanbul final, the names of Kosovan side Feronikeli, Gibraltar's Lincoln Red Imps, San Marino champions Tre Penne or Andorran FC Santa Coloma are in contention to claim the title, but today all four clubs made their own bit of Champions League history being the first four sides to participate in the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League preliminary round.

All four clubs will compete in a "Final 4" style event in Pristina (Kosovo) with the final taking place on June 28 and the winners moving through to the first qualifying round on 9/10 & 16/17 July, with their opponents decided in the draw which is set to be staged on 18 June.
