Over 3.5 goals at Real Madrid vs Liverpool in Saturdays Champions League final 11/10

Competition: Champions League final

Market: Over 3.5 goals

Odds: 11/10 @ Bet365

Over a decade on from their last Champions League final, on Saturday night Liverpool will travel to Kiev to face the two-time defending champions Real Madrid.

For Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid side, although Los Blancos will be looking to win their third consecutive Champions League title, after finishing second in the Group stages, The Whites have been far from their best. Only coming past Juventus courtesy of a late controversial penalty, Real also had to survive a late surge from Bayern Munich and the defending Champions have now kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 in all competitions. Unsurprisingly, while Real have drastically struggled with defensive issues this year, both domestically and in Europe, Zidane will be reliant on talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to carry on another emphatic year in the Champions League. Along with scoring the winner against Bayern Munich in the semi-final, the Portuguese international now has 15 in the tournament this year and leads the goalscoring charts.

As for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side, coming off the back of a 4-0 win at home to Brighton and securing a Top Four finish for another season, The Red’s will be looking to lift their first piece of silverware when they travel to Kiev. After topping Group E and putting on dominant performances against the likes of Roma and Manchester City, while Madrid may have Cristiano Ronaldo, Liverpool have arguably the best attacking trio on the planet. With Mohamed Salah topping the Premier League charts and being crowned PFA player of the year, Salah, Firmino and Mane now sit second, third and fourth in the Champions League goalscoring charts and have scored an astonishing 29 goals between them in Europe this year.

Bet: Over 3.5 goals at Real Madrid vs Liverpool in Saturdays Champions League final 11/10 @ Bet365>>
