Last time: These two sides met at the quarter final stage of this competition last year. Real Madrid’s 3-1 victory in the first leg was enough to see them through.
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Real Madrid now need to beat a third English Premier League in a row to claim the Champions League for a 14th time. They have seen off Chelsea and Manchester City in dramatic fashion in the last two rounds and can complete the set by overcoming Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
Although no team is lucky to reach the final of this competition, the English side have definitely had the easier route. After navigating a potentially tricky group and seeing off Inter in the round of 16, Liverpool have faced Benfica and then Villarreal to reach this point. Neither of those ties were straightforward – but they were definitely the most welcome draws on paper.
Real Madrid and Liverpool now meet in the final for the third time. Alan Kennedy scored the only goal back in 1981 to claim their third title, while Gareth Bale scored two wonder goals in a 3-1 victory in 2018 for Real Madrid.
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid full time result odds
We have enjoyed some exciting Champions League nights this season. But this final promises to be a classic. Liverpool come into the game after losing out on the chance of winning a quadruple. Whereas Real Madrid can follow up the La Liga title with the most coveted prize in European football. A close game is on the cards and the draw after 90 minutes, priced at 11/4, looks like good value.
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid both teams to score odds
Both sides got through the group stage conceding very few goals. But it has been a different story since then. There are plenty of players on both sides that are able to trouble opposing defences, but it is the back lines of both Liverpool and Real Madrid that have struggled in recent rounds. Even if this match starts off at a slower pace, it still feels as though both teams will score – and that is priced at 8/13.
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid correct score odds
We have been here before, when two attacking teams make it to final, scoring lots of goals along the way, only to park the bus and grind out a Champions League victory by any means necessary. But it doesn’t seem as though either Liverpool or Real Madrid will come into this game in that frame of mind. Los Blancos have mastered the art of the comeback against English teams but a scoreline of 1-1, priced at 6/1, seem a good option.
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid first goalscorer odds
With so many potential match winners on both teams, picking one out to open the scoring at the Stade de France on Saturday is a tough task. Salah and Mané will be favourites for Liverpool, while Karim Benzema will be backed by many to extend his incredible record in the competition this season. But it could be worth looking elsewhere and – as long as he gets a decent run out – Luis Diaz looks good value at 13/2.
