Liverpool vs Real Madrid Betting Preview  

After missing out on a dramatic English Premier League title to winners Manchester City and with it the hopes for an unprecedented quadruple, Liverpool will shift their attention to the Champions League final. The Reds are unbeaten in the last 18 outings, having recorded 15 victories and 3 draw. They have only lost once in 2022, a 0:1 home defeat to Inter Milan in the last-16 round (they won 2-1 on aggregate, having beaten the Serie A outfit 2-0 at the Stadio San Siro). In Champions League, Liverpool reached the final by narrowly beating Inter Milan (2-1 on aggregate) and then easing past Benfica and Villarreal.

Real Madrid ran away with the La Liga crown a couple of weeks ago, having dominated the league since the early stages. They finished a whopping 13 points ahead of runners-up Barcelona, and lost just four matches all season in domestic league. Los Blancos were impressive in Europe too as they knocked out Chelsea, PSG and Manchester City coming from behind on each occasion. Karim Benzema, who is leading the Top Goalscorer chart with 15 goals netted so far, scored in five consecutive knockout fixtures - including back-to-back hat-tricks against Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea and the deciding penalty against Man City.

Real Madrid are unbeaten in the last five meetings between the sides. They locked horns in the 2018 UCL final. Gareth Bale scored twice that day in a 3-1 win for Real Madrid. The Welshman brings his time in Spain to an end this summer but may be a part of the Real squad for this final.

Best Odds

Liverpool are 6/5 to win in regular time with 10Bet, with Real Madrid 5/2 to upset the Reds with Unibet. A draw is priced at 11/4 with SpreadEx.

Probable Line-Ups

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konatè, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; L.Diaz, Manè, Salah

Jurgen Klopp will be sweating about the availability of key players such as Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara while Joe Gomez remains a doubt. Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah should both return to the side but Divock Origi is definetely out through injury. The Egyptian should join Luis Diaz and Sadio Manè in attack (with Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino as backup options) while the Dutchman should be flanked by Ibrahima Konatè, who is favourite over Joel Matip. The starting full backs will be Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson.

Real Madrid (4-3-3): Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius

David Alaba looks set to be in contention after a month on the sidelines. The Austrian should start as centre-back alongside Eder Militao, while Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy are favourites for the full back spots. Up front, Karim Benzema will spearhead the attack as usual, while Vinicius Jr. and Federico Valverde should start as wingers. The likes of Rodrygo and Marco Asensio provide further options. No changes are expected in midfield where Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are expected to flank Casemiro.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Betting Tips  

On paper, Liverpool is the better team. The Reds have won 27 of their last 31 matches (D3 L1) but they looked shaky in the first half of the semifinal's second leg, when Villarreal opened a two goals lead to knot the aggregate at two apiece. Real Madrid were outplayed for long periods by PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City but somehow found a way through each of those tough ties. Carlo Ancelotti's men clearly have class and experience to take advantage from every little mistake. Consider that Liverpool will be also more fatigued than Real, this could be a very tight affair. A 2-2 draw at the end of regular time is our pick. The Both Teams To Score bet is also appealing. As to the winning team, Liverpool to lift the trophy is our recommended bet (William Hill are offering 30/1 for this bet!).
