CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL PREVIEW: LIVERPOOL VS REAL MADRID

The UEFA Champions League Final throws two European colossal clubs at each other in a rematch of the 2018 decider in Ukraine. Real Madrid won that night 3-1 in a controversial and truly bizarre show, which featured Liverpool kingpin Mohamed Salah’s infamous exit after 30 minutes due to injury.

Real Madrid were completing a historic Champions League threepeat back then. Liverpool could claim their own treble here, with League Cup and F.A. Cup trophies already in the locker for the 2021/22 season. Only a set of final day shenanigans stopped them from claiming the Premier League title last week. But this is the one that should matter most to the Reds.

In 2018, Real Madrid were legitimately a superior side on talent. But there were multiple events on that night on Kyiv that would be tattooed in the memories of Merseyside fans. Sergio Ramos, for one, who became public enemy no. 1 for his apparent “involvement” in Salah’s departure.

Then there’s Karim Benzema poking his foot out to stop Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius’s throw back into play, which rolled into the back of the net. All this despite the Real striker clearly being yards offside during the play before Karius had his mitts on the ball.

Vengeance will be the dream for many. But Jürgen Klopp and his men are more than just a team to play any game out of spite. They are one of the most exciting, well-rounded and best managed clubs that the Premier League has ever seen. And clear favourites to win on the Betfair Exchange.

Real Madrid did the unexpected and came from behind against Manchester City in the semi. They are deserving finalists and top competition for perhaps the greatest Liverpool side we have seen. Can the Reds attacking brigade of Salah, Sadio Mané and Diogo Jota be enough of a force, or will we see we great number 9 Benzema step up to the plate for his side once again – and carry Real Madrid to another trophy?

BETTING STRATEGY | MATCH ODDS

It is hard to go past Liverpool, falling a whisker short to Manchester City in the Premier League this past weekend. Liverpool will be burning and will not want to let this slip. You can’t discount the attacking force and style of play Real Madrid have provided in 2021/22, with players like Vinícius Júnior and Benzema on the pitch, but we expect this Liverpool defence to hold strong and walk away with their 7th European title.

BACK — Liverpool at $2.16+

BETTING STRATEGY | OVER/UNDER 2.5 GOALS

I would definitely be looking at the overs in this market. As mentioned above, Liverpool present one of the great front lines. If there’s one thing we know about Real Madrid, they can score a handful of goals in a short amount of time. Expect both sides to be on the front foot early, with both sides only failing to score in 1 Champions League game this season.

BETTING STRATEGY | CORRECT SCORE

With Liverpool putting away at least 2 goals in every Champions League game this season bar one, we expect that trend to continue on. It will take some defensive effort from their competitors to stop such a well drilled and talented attack. Real Madrid are no strangers to a high scoring affair, but with defenders like Van Dijk, Alexander Arnold and Alisson in goal, it should be enough to prevent too much damage on the scoreboard.

BACK — 3-1 at $18.50+
