Real Madrid vs Liverpool Betting Predictions
Road to the Champions League Final
To reach the final, Real Madrid played in a tough leg against Bayern Munich. In the first leg, they fell behind early at Allianz Arena in Germany. But goals to Marcelo Vieira and Marco Asensio setup the 2-1 comeback victory as they headed back home. In leg 2, the German side scored in just the 3rd minute and had the run of play. But once again, Real Madrid showed their class as they held on for a 2-2 draw.
Meanwhile for Liverpool, they’ll be playing in their first European Cup final since a 2-1 loss to AC Milan in 2007. On their way to the final this season, they thrashed Roma 5-2 with doubles to Salah and Firmino at Anfield. While in the 2nd leg, Liverpool survived a late flurry of goals (4-2 Roma) to reach the Champions League final by an aggregate of 7 to 6.

Champions League Final Preview
In this matchup, we’ll be watching two of the best attacking teams in the Champions League. Real Madrid has Cristiano Ronaldo up front and he’s the leading goal scorer this season with 15 in the back of the net. While for Liverpool, Mohamed Salah is the key to their success. He broke the record for goals scored in an EPL campaign this season and definitely earned player of the season. His goal scoring form has also continued in the Champions League with 10 goals this campaign. Roberto Firmino is another player to watch for Liverpool as he’s also scored 10 total goals. So with the amount of attacking options to look for in this matchup, the over total goals at $1.50 is one of the safest bets in the final. You would also have to figure each side is going to find the back of the net ($1.36 odds) after scoring multiple goals in the previous round.
