Champions League Final Odds - What Do the Bookies Think?

Real Madrid vs Liverpool.

The Champions League final is tomorrow and people can’t wait for it. That is perfectly understandable, especially when we consider the fact that the Champions League final is the most important game in European club football. Both Real Madrid and Liverpool have had wonderful seasons this year in their domestic leagues, but also in the Champions League. Real Madrid won La Liga with ease and Liverpool didn’t manage to win the title in the dramatic match last week. But, when it comes to the Champions League, it is safe to say that Liverpool had a much easier path to the final. Sure, they had easier opponents, but they simply showed better football. No disrespect to Real Madrid, who blessed us with a heroic display against PSG, Chelsea, and Manchester City. But, who will win the title? That is the question most people are asking today. We don’t have the answer to that question, but we can see what the bookmakers think.

The Odds

If you are a football enthusiast who loves betting, the final on Saturday may be a complicated one for you. Why is that? The answer is simple, Real Madrid and Liverpool are pretty similar this season. That is why there is not much difference when it comes to the odds.

Most bookmakers, like the ones who make Betiton odds, for example, have found little to separate the sides. At least on paper. When it comes to the odds in the final, this is the situation. Bookies determined that the odds are 8/5 (160) on Madrid to win the title and 11/10 (110) for Liverpool. Many experts think that the Reds will finish the job after 90 minutes. We can agree that Liverpool are the mild favorites, but we saw how Real Madrid plays when they are losing. They have the champions mentality and they shouldn’t be underestimated. That is why one of the best options is the goalless draw. The odds for a goalless draw are 4/1. When you consider that this game will be a strategic battle between Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp, that may be the best option.

Other Bets

If you have experience when it comes to soccer betting, you know that trying to guess the final score reaps greater rewards. For example, you have the 10/1 odds to guess the 2:0 Liverpool win as the final score. When it comes to the first scorer stakes, Salah is priced at 4/1 to hit the target first with Madrid marksman Benzema priced at closer to 5/1.

If you want to guess the man of the match, you should know that Salah is also available at 7/4 odds. For example, the odds for Real Madrid to win and both teams to score is priced at 6/1 at some bookmakers.

Predictions For The Game

We have discussed numbers today, but what can you expect from the game on Saturday? That is the question many people are asking today. One thing is for sure, the battle between Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp will be one to watch. Carlo is one of the most successful managers in European football, but Klopp is one of the best in the last five years. Both of them know how to play attacking football and there is a good chance that there will be many goals. But, when you consider the importance of the game, 0-2 goals is a more likely scenario. Here are the players to watch.

Karim Benzema

The Frenchman has scored 15 goals in the Champions League this season and he is having the best season of his career. He will probably be the biggest threat to the Liverpool goal. Virgil van Dijk will have his work cut out for him. That will be the most important battle on the pitch.

Mohamed Salah

If Benzema is the man for Real Madrid, then Salah is the man for Liverpool. For Salah, this game is personal. He wants revenge for the 2018 final. Sergio Ramos is not at Real Madrid, but Salah said on social media that he seeks revenge. Will he get it? We will see on Saturday.
