Liverpool: Remarkable Season
The quadruple dream is over for Liverpool. Having already lifted the League Cup and FA Cup trophies, for a time on Sunday it looked like the Reds would win the Premier League title too. Trailing Manchester City by one point going into the final round, Liverpool watched Aston Villa score twice on the road against the Citizens. The Reds managed to beat Wolves 3-1 but the Citizens scored three times in six minutes to turn their game against Villa on its head. City’s victory meant they got crowned champions of England for the fourth time in five years.
Jurgen Klopp might have missed out on the Premier League crown, but victory this weekend would secure a brilliant cup treble and give Liverpool the edge over City in terms of overall achievements this term. Liverpool may have shown signs of tiredness of late, but despite allowing first in each of their final four Premier League fixtures, they still managed to collect ten points in the process.
Ahead of the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday, revenge is on Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah’s mind. He hasn’t forgotten what went down in the 2018 final against Real Madrid in Kyiv. The painful moment happened in the first half when Sergio Ramos tackled him and he landed heavily on the ground, dislocating his left shoulder.
Liverpool is fully packed with world-class attacking players and Jurgen Klopp added some extra value to his attacking line by signing Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz. Unfortunately, they also have some injury issues. Last weekend against Wolves, Thiago recognized a problem in his leg and called for a substitution, limping off to the sidelines. His injury was described as not serious but whether the time is on his side remains to be seen. Fabinho resumed training on Wednesday in a boost for Jurgen Klopp ahead of the Champions League final. This is the most important match of the season for both teams so including one of them in your soccer picks and parlays is not the smartest thing to do.

Real Madrid: Hollywood Story
The Champions League always has been and always will be Real Madrid’s competition. It is in the club’s DNA to fight until the death, especially in this, the most glorious European competition. During this UCL campaign, Los Blancos had already performed the unlikeliest of rescue acts to defeat both Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 and Chelsea in the quarter-finals but, given the stakes and how close they were to defeat, the comeback against Manchester City was surely the most dramatic one.
They have been crowned La Liga champions, but their European campaign defies both belief and description after a series of sensational comebacks. They have been grateful to Karim Benzema’s superb campaign, while youngster Rodrygo has been the very definition of a hero in the most important games.
Real Madrid wants to quickly forget about Kylian Mbappe and turn its focus back on the Champions League final. Four days before the most important game of the season, everyone in Real Madrid’s camp tried their best to avoid talking about France forward and his decision to stay with Paris Saint-Germain. Ancelotti, who can become the first coach to win four Champions League titles, will have Madrid at full strength on Saturday. If you’re betting online, you should wait for the official lineups.
Real Madrid Expected Lineup for UCL Final: GK T. Courtois, DL F. Mendy, DC Eder Militao, DC David Alaba (quest), DR D. Carvajal, MC Casemiro, MC Luka Modric, MC Toni Kroos, FWL Vinicius Junior, FWR F. Valverde, FW K. Benzema.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Head-to-Head
The teams played each other on three occasions in the last four Champions League seasons. Last year Real managed to knock out Liverpool from the quarter-finals of the competition but they also lifted the trophy in 2018 beating the Reds 3-1 in the final. Two of the last three head-to-heads between the two sides produced four goals with both teams contributing to the scoresheet.
Los Blancos will be eager to win their 14th European title on Saturday at Stade de France. This will be their fifth Champions League final in eight seasons. They’ve won 13 of the 17 European finals they’ve played in the continent’s top club competition. Madrid won its 10th European Cup eight years ago with Ancelotti as a coach, then clinched three straight titles between 2016 and 2018 with Zinedine Zidane as their manager.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Betting Lines
Liverpool vs Real Madrid Props
The hosts enter this clash as favorites being priced at +105 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 2½.
As we previously stated, we will avoid the winners’ market and focus on the best props offered by our sportsbook. Karim Benzema enjoyed a magnificent season with Los Blancos with the Frenchman commanding the spotlight, scoring 15 goals to help steer his side to the Champions League final. He’s priced at +130 to find the back of the net, a great value bet for the final.
The two teams love their corners and we have a special pick for this market. Real Madrid’s corner line is set at 3½. That’s banker material, an unreal line for such an outcome. Liverpool’s backline players love to put their bodies between the ball and the net, many times offering corners to their opponents, so we see Real Madrid winning at least four corners.
Usually, these types of finals are boring and low-scoring. We don’t expect this to happen between two of the best teams in European who are both playing positive football. That being said, we expect goals from both sides and at least three goals in the match priced at +100.
Pick: Real Madrid Team Corners Over 3½ at -110
