Liverpool v Real Madrid Champions League Final Betting Tips 28/05/22

Champions League Betting

Liverpool and Real Madrid face off in the 2021/22 Champions League final on Saturday, so sit back and enjoy our Liverpool v Real Madrid Champions League Final Betting Tips 28/05/22. The Reds ended their Premier League campaign last weekend as narrow runners-up to Man City. But Jurgen Klopp’s side still has the chance to notch a treble winning campaign in the final this weekend. Madrid stormed to win La Liga by 13 points this season, and their Champions League campaign has been nail-biting following late drama against Man City and Paris St Germain in the knockout stages. These two heavyweights of European football are well set for a massive clash in Paris. The match kicks off at 8p.m, and it will be shown live on BT Sport. 

Team News/Form

Liverpool ended their Premier League season with a 3-1 home win over Wolves, but it was not enough to snatch the title from eventual winners Man City. The win ensured the Reds ended their season with four consecutive wins, and they are unbeaten in their last 18 in all competitions. Real Madrid finished their La Liga season with consecutive draws at Cadiz (0-0) and at home against Real Betis (1-1). But Los Blancos had already wrapped up the league title in late April. 

For the team news, Liverpool midfielders Fabinho and Thiago are doubtful and striker Divock Origi is ruled out. Madrid pair Gareth Bale and David Alaba could be in contention, but defender Miguel Gutiérrez is unavailable due to injury. 

Matchwinner Betting Odds

Given their impressive recent form in the second half of the season, Liverpool are the slight favourites against Real Madrid in the Champions League final. Despite reaching the final, Madrid relied on some late goals and extra time victories to get there. Los Blancos lost two of their last three European matches, falling to defeat at Man City (4-3) and at home against Chelsea (3-2). As a result, the Spanish champions are slight outsiders to win, with Coral offering the best odds at 13/5. However, a draw could be likely, considering Carlo Ancelotti’s side has seen stalemates in their last two. Also, Liverpool has not beaten Madrid in their last five meetings, including a 0-0 draw in the last head-to-head. At 14/5 odds, SpreadEx has the best value for a draw. After winning ten of their 12 Champions League matches this season, we are backing a Liverpool win in Paris. Klopp’s side has also won ten of their last 14 in all competitions, and SportNation has the best odds for a Reds victory at 11/10. 

Under/Over Total Goals Bet

Both Liverpool and Real Madrid have been among the goals this season. Liverpool has scored two or more goals in 11 of their 12 Champions League matches, while Madrid has seen over 2.5 goals in their last five European matches. As a result, there is decent value on backing over 2.5 goals in the final, with 10Bet providing 3/4 odds. However, the Champions League final is often a cagey encounter, and the last three have ended with under 2.5 goals and the last two with under 1.5 goals. As a result, we’re backing SpreadEx’s offer of 6/5 for a result of under 2.5 goals in Paris. 

Anytime Goalscorer Bets

Because a cagey game is expected in the Champions League final, one star could make a difference for either side. For Liverpool and Madrid, there are a couple of standout picks in the anytime scorer market. The Reds’ striker Sadio Mane ended the season in top form, hitting seven goals in his last ten, including one in both legs against Villareal in the Champions League semi-finals. As a result, there is good value backing another Mane goal at 9/4, provided by Sky bet. However, one player who has lit up the Champions League this season is Madrid’s Karim Benzema. If Madrid are to keep their remarkable European campaign going this season, the French forward could be key to their success. After scoring 20 goals in his last 16 matches, including ten in the Champions League, Benzema is a strong choice in the anytime scorer market. At 6/4, we are tipping a Benzema goal via Bet365
