Real Madrid vs Liverpool | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
This is it, the biggest game in club football is almost upon us, with the Champions League Final set to take place next Saturday between Real Madrid and Liverpool. These two sides are two of the most successful teams in the history of the competition with Real Madrid having won it a record 12 times, whilst Liverpool have lifted the trophy five times.
Real Madrid will be seeking to win the trophy for a third successive season after beating Juventus and Atletico Madrid in the last two finals. Liverpool will be looking to win their first Champions League trophy since their dramatic win against AC Milan in 2005. The Reds found themselves 3-0 down at half time in that game, before engineering one of the greatest comebacks in football to win the trophy on penalties. Kiev will be hosting the final in its national stadium on what is sure to be a dramatic night in Eastern Europe.
Real Madrid Form
Real Madrid came through a dramatic semi-final against Bayern Munich in a game in which they could easily have been eliminated. Real Madrid won the tie 4-3 on aggregate, but considering the amount of chances which Bayern Munich spurned, they could easily have lost. Real Madrid ended their domestic campaign with a 2-2 draw against Villarreal, a result which meant they are destined to finish in 3rd place. Cristiano Ronaldo returned from injury in that game and has declared himself “120% fit” for the final on Saturday.
Gareth Bale comes into the game on a superb run of form with the Welsh forward having scored five goals in his last five appearances. Manager Zinedine Zidane has often left the wing wizard on the bench in the biggest games though and it will be interesting to see whether Bale has done enough to warrant a starting berth in the biggest game of all.
Liverpool also came through a highly dramatic semi-final against Roma, eventually winning 7-6 on aggregate. The scoreline makes the game look closer than it was though, and despite a couple of late goals causing the nerves to jangle, Liverpool never really looked in danger of blowing their 5-2 first leg lead. Liverpool finished their season on a high with a 4-0 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion, a result which guaranteed their participation in next season’s Champions League. Mohamed Salah scored his 32nd Premier League goal in that game and sealed his Golden Boot win.
With Liverpool’s season finishing a week before Real Madrid’s, Jurgen Klopp has taken his side to a training camp in Marbella and they appear to have been enjoying some relaxing times ahead of the final. Emre Can has linked up with the Liverpool squad in Spain and the German midfielder could well be pushing for a starting spot as he returns from injury. Liverpool come into the game with plenty of key players missing though, with Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all out injured.
Real Madrid vs Liverpool Head to Head

Real Madrid vs Liverpool Top Betting Tips: Real Madrid to win
Anything can happen in a Champions League, as Liverpool demonstrated in 2005 and both sets of fans will come into this game full of hope and expectation. Real Madrid will start the game as favourites and when you consider their recent European exploits you have to respect that. Something just feels right about this Liverpool side though and their run in this competition feels destined to end in success. I fancy Liverpool to do something very special in Kiev on Saturday and I’m backing The Reds to lift the trophy for a sixth time at the end of the match.
- This is Real Madrid’s third consecutive final appearance and fourth in the past five seasons, with the Spanish side winning on all those previous final appearances.
- This is Liverpool’s first final appearance since 2007, when they lost to 2-1 AC Milan.
- Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer in this season’s competition with 15 goals, whilst Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have found the net 10 times each.
