Champions League Predictions > May 26th

Recommended Posts


It's being labelled as potentially the most attacking Champions League Final of all-time with La Liga club Real Madrid set to face Premier League side Liverpool. So much value to be had here if you're feeling brave. What bets do you guys think are the ones to place ahead of this epic clash? :ok

I will go with Real Madrid win as in previous years, odds are ok-ish. Reasoning being that Liverpool are not the best travellers and Real Madrid is really good in these winner takes all matches. Odds should rise even more, last year against Juventus Madrid was 2.60 I don't think that Liverpool has a realistic chance to win like Juve had last time. Only red cards, own goals and stuff like that can ruin the day for Madrid. Klopp will more often than not fail against big teams and coaches playing away (not home).

Real Madrid vs Liverpool

So here it is! The 2017/18 Champions League Final. How many of us would have correctly predicted this as a potential final? Except the die hard Liverpool fans, of course! It's La Liga side Real Madrid taking on Premier League club Liverpool in a 7:45pm kick-off this Saturday night at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev.

Neither side really threatened to win their domestic league which begs the question if this really deserves to be called Europe's elite competition but maybe that's the fun of it? The level of unpredictability where it might not necessarily be close to the best performing sides in Europe that meet. Hard to argue against either of these sides earning their spot in this final though.

Zinedine Zidane' side hardly impressed during the group stage finishing as runners up to Tottenham in a group that also contained Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia. To their credit, Real only dropped points to Tottenham but the other two sides were not close to competing this season. However, their form has improved as the tournament has progressed with knockout victories over PSG, Juventus, and Bayern Munich. Could it have been any tougher?

Jurgen Klopp's side are the leading scorers in this season's Champions League bagging 40 goals over the duration of the competition. They navigated their way through a potentially tricky group that included Sevilla, Spartak Moscow, and Maribor. The Reds topped the group undefeated scoring 23 goals in the process. Their route to the final during the knockout rounds has been a rollercoaster of emotions with high-scoring ties against Porto, Manchester City, and Roma.

This weekend's final is sure to be a game of attacking play. Both teams rely on their potent attacks. Real possess the likes of Karim Benzema, Isco, Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Luca Modric. Liverpool can boast an attack that includes Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, and Georginio Wijnaldum.

I share the views of many that have posted already about this being a high-scoring game. Who will win? I wouldn't bet against Liverpool. I feel Real Madrid have been papering over the cracks of a crumbling dynasty at stages this season. Their La Liga form has shown how vulnerable they can be. Klopp's sides often raise their game against the big sides. Can Real defy the odds from the start of the season and win a third Champions League title in a row? It'll be tough and I think unless Ronaldo has the game of his life I think this final has the potential to be remembered as Salah's Final if he can finish his season as he's played it.

Real Madrid vs Liverpool

Real Madrid can play a full team in this Champions League final, and Liverpool are lacking three players. However, their offensive trident are healthy, so it wouldn't affect them that much.

Check more information about both teams' analysis at 7msport.com

In terms of strength on paper, the Glaticos are better for sure. However, the AH line of this game is only Real Madrid (-0.25), which is confusing. Besides, there is only 60% buying them in Betfair Exchange. It is obvious that people are not in favor of them with the fears of amazing Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp. Overall speaking, the odds not showing the gap between these two teams in strength and go with people's expectations. Actually, it creates some protection for the favourites.

Therefore 7M Sports believe that Real Madrid are expected to win this game within 90 minutes.

Real Madrid are underpriced in all markets for me - if we go back to the start of the season it was pretty much pickum for La Liga between Real and Barce whilst Liverpool were 14/1 5th favs for the Prem. Now I get there's been a lot of football played in the meantime and I know Real finished some 17 points behind Barcelona, but on my ratings there isn't much between the two Spanish sides - the difference being Barce have better save and conversion rates. In fairness Liverpool are 2nd on my ratings only behind Man City. I do think the gap has closed between Real and Liverpool but not as much as the market suggests, Reals strength in depth and their previous Champions League finals experience is another factor in their favour.

Real Madrid to win @ 23/20 (general)

Real Madrid to lift the trophy @ 4/6 (general)

Everybody and his dog 'knows' this is going to be a high scoring game. Just the occasion when, because each team also know the dangers of their opponents attack, they will concentrate more on not giving anything away.

For me it has all the hallmarks of a 0-0 at 90 minutes.

Having said that, should a goal be scored in the first half, then the game profile changes and a hat-full is possible. But for me that doesn't make the odds of 23.0 available for 0-0 correct score (Skybet) a poor value bet, even if used as a small stake saver with whatever else you think may happen.

One thing I think Klopp and this Liverpool team have in their favour is that they are not underestimating this team one bit. But there's no way they're in awe either.

The problem last year with the Juve final was that the balance of respect for Madrid was off. They overestimated themselves when they were one nil up and then the flurry of goals that followed deflated them. Same as the game Juve played against Barca this year. They weren't professional enough. That's the inbred nature of the Italian leagues coming through, their national team suffers from the same weakness.

The more stats I read and interviews with the teams, the more I am leaning towards this being a lower-scoring affair...

Yeah, I think you're spot on. Klopp loves coming into a game as underdog too. He thrives on it. Can't believe that stat about both teams not scoring more than one goal in so long. Could it happen tonight? I think you're right. Liverpool will need balls as big as boulders. And you know what? I think they've got them!

Just cant see Liverpool having enough in the centre of the park to win this one.

Madrid are better marginally in defense and twice as strong in midfield. Liverpool's attack will cause Madrid problems but they have to score 1st. Klopps comments coming into the match sounds defeatist as hell, talking down their chances at every turn.


Will take Madrid to win in 90mins at 2.30 and a small stake on the game to be decided in ET at 6.00.
