Why bet on Real Madrid
It’s always tough to bet against a team with experience in a competition, and Real Madrid has that in spades. Their 12 European Cups is the best of any team in Europe, and they have picked up 3 of those in the last 4 years, including the last two. Much has been made about the fitness of Cristiano Ronaldo, but you also wonder how much of it is just the media trying to make something of nothing. He will start, and whenever he is on the field, you can expect something special to happen. Even if Ronaldo is off his game, Madrid still has the likes of Benzema and Bale to count on in the attacking front, so the Liverpool defense is going to have their work cut out for them in the final.
Why bet on the Liverpool
There were a lot of folks who believed that Liverpool would fall at the quarter-final hurdle when they had to go up against Manchester City. They won that tie with relative ease, going through 5-1 on aggregate. If that was Liverpool at their best, then the semi-final showed their weaknesses in a big way. After going up 5-0 over Roma in the home leg, Liverpool gave up a pair of late goals to make things very nervy in leg 2, which they lost 4-2. This is a defense that is prone to gifting goals, but with Salah, Mane, and Firmino all leading the charge, Liverpool can afford to get drawn into a shootout and still come away with the win. A lot of the pressure is going to fall on Virgil van Dijk in the heart of the defense, as he will need to organize the troops and keep them compact at the back if Liverpool is to win.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
It’s been a long time since I have been looking forward to a game as much as I am this one. If we get an early goal here, the floodgates might open. I have Madrid making it 3 in a row in a high-scoring affair.
Predicted Score: Real Madrid 3 Liverpool 2
