REAL MADRID vs LIVERPOOL BETTING PREVIEW
Real Madrid came through the semi finals with a 4-3 aggregate win over Bayern Munich. They bat the Bavarians 2-1 away from home in the first leg and held on at the death in Madrid to draw 2-2 in the return match. Prior to that they survived a scare against Juventus altough they beat the Italian champions 3-0 in Turin. They are currently on a 27 match scoring streak in European games. Los Blancos have bagged 3 Champions League title over the past 4 campaigns and now look to break another record, amid a very disappointing La Liga campaign under Zinedine Zidane – where they failed to cope with pace-setters Barcelona.
Real Madrid are expected to have a fully fit squad to choose from with Zinedine Zidane revealing Ronaldo would be 100% fit for this clash. Dani Carvajal returned from injury against Villarreal and will start as right back, with Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Marcelo completing the back four. Isco and Lucas Vazquez are in contention for the third berth in attack alongside Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. No changes are expected in midfield where Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are likely to retain their starting berth.
Liverpool beat Roma in the semi-finals to advance to this showpiece clash. The Reds overcame the Giallorossi 7-6 on aggregate, courtesy of a 5-2 win at Anfield in the first leg match. Prior to that, Jurgen Klopp's men beat Manchester City home (3-0) and away (2-1) while in the first knockout round they delivered a 5-0 aggregate win over Porto with all the goals coming in the first leg in Portugal. They were unbeaten in 11 UCL games before to lose 4-2 at the Olimpico. In the Premier League Liverpool finished in fourth place, 25 points adrift of Man City, 6 behind Manchester UTD and 2 shy of Tottenham.
The Reds will also take an almost fully fit squad to Ukraine, with Emre Can and James Milner both returning to training this week. Jurgen Klopp, who will be only without long-term absentees Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Gomez for the final, will keep faith in his usual 4-3-3 formation in which Sadio Manè, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah will lead the line. At the back, Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold should get the nod over Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno as full back, with Virgil Van Dijk and Dejan Lovren confirmed as centre-backs. Milner, Georginj Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson should form the midfield trio.
