CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL: We preview Saturday’s Champions League Final between REAL MADRID v LIVERPOOL with a recommended BETDAQ bet.


7.45pm On eyes will be in Kiev on Saturday night as the Champions League Final takes place. These two clubs have been here many times before, with Real Madrid having their 16th appearance in a Champions League Final – more than any other club. While this is Liverpool’s eight final – more than any other English side. Both sides play exciting football and have a reputation of being poor at the back, so we could have a very exciting final!

The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Real Madrid 2.3, Liverpool 3.2 and the draw is 3.85. While in the ‘To Lift The Trophy’ market; Real Madrid are 1.72 and Liverpool are 2.38. This is Klopp’s second Champions League final, however no Liverpool played has been here before. Compare that to Real Madrid who have been here in four of the last five now – experience might play a huge part on a huge night.

It would be remarkable if Real Madrid could win three straight Champions League trophies, however you have to feel that they are a little short at 2.3. Liverpool have been very impressive in this competition, and at times in the Premier League. They have had their problems at the back; however they’ve kept six clean sheets in this competition this season – more than any other club.

Real Madrid were a long way off the pace this season in La Liga too, however the same could be said for Liverpool in the Premier League. Perhaps it allowed them to focus on this competition, and both sides should be fully prepared for a peak performance coming into the final. You have to feel that we will see goals with these two sides; there is too much attacking talent on the pitch not to see goals. The markets agree however, with over 2.5 goals trading 1.54 at the moment – that feels a little too short to back considering that we can have cagey starts to finals.

We feel that the value bet of the Champions League Final is to lay Real Madrid at 2.3. Liverpool have shown that they can score from anywhere this season and come into this game in excellent form. From a value point of view, we just feel that this game will be closer than odds of 2.3 on Real Madrid suggest. Hopefully it’s a great game!

Lay Real Madrid at 2.3.
