There’s little doubt that Liverpool had had an easier route to the Paris showdown, overcoming the challenges of Inter, Benfica and Villarreal in order to take their place in the 2022 showpiece.

On the flip side, Real Madrid have been the betting outsiders for their respective ties. Against Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City, although some courageous performances from Carlo Ancelotti’s side means that they’re a game away from making history.

      Liverpool v Real Madrid Head to Heads

      Wednesday 14 April 2021: Liverpool 0-0 Real Madrid

      Tuesday 6 April 2021: Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool

      Saturday 26 May 2018: Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool

      The clash in 2018 was actually the Champions League final. That occasion was particularly pertinent, with Mohamed Salah getting injured during the first half of that clash. The Egyptian would go on to the World Cup that summer and not be completely fit, so he’ll want to right some wrongs.

      However, Real Madrid have enjoyed the upper hand over Liverpool in the past few meetings. And they knocked Jurgen Klopp’s side out of the competition last season. A 3-1 first leg advantage proved too sizeable and that was followed by a goalless draw at Anfield.

      What Are the Best Champions League Final Tips?

      We actually think Liverpool could be a decent bet at evens to win this game. This implies that they have a 50% chance of winning in normal time and we think it’s actually a little bigger. Real Madrid have been carved up defensively in the Champions League this term and ridden their luck along the way.

      However, Los Merengues are a team who carry a goal threat and it seems written in the stars that Karim Benzema will score. The French striker and current Ballon d’Or favourite found the net home and away against Manchester City. While he was able to pilfer hat-tricks against Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

      Therefore, Liverpool and BTTS Yes could be the bet to have. This brings some tasty correct score bets into play, with a Reds 2-1 win and 3-1 win potentially worth covering to give us a decent run for our money.

      What is the Best Champions League Final Bet Builder?

      There are some interesting Bet Builder tips & options and we can get the ball rolling by including a Liverpool win and BTTS Yes as per the above explanation. If we work on the basis that there are going to be a few goals scored, then we need to consider which players are going to find the net.

      The Real Madrid side of things is probably more straightforward and Benzema is clearly the focal point of the attack. While Liverpool have a number of attacking players who can find the net. We think Sadio Mane could be the best shout based on the fact that he’s a certain starter.

      If we’re looking at players to receive a card, it could be that Casemiro is vulnerable in the midfield engine room. While Dani Carvajal is going to have his hands full whoever he is tasked with marking.
