Long-Awaited Rematch of 2018 Final

Liverpool Slightly Favored

This is it, folks, as the best soccer-club tournament in the world comes to an end Saturday. There’s two historic teams fighting for the gold. First, no squad has won more UEFA Champions League titles than Real Madrid’s 13 trophies. However, Liverpool could match AC Milan in second place with seven.

Los Blancos come in as champions of La Liga, while the Reds come in as bridesmaids of the English Premier League. Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp’s team dominates the soccer odds with a +110 price. You don’t want to miss this game, so get a “Do Not Disturb” sign.


Check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Champions League odds for Liverpool vs Real Madrid. There are plenty of Soccer predictions for you to consider.

Liverpool Fully Loaded

Playing last Sunday, Liverpool defeated Wolverhampton, 3-1, in the EPL. However, unfortunately for the Reds, they couldn’t snatch the title from Manchester City. They still have the chance to finish the season with three titles, already having won the EFL Cup and the FA Cup. That’s an accomplishment greater than any other team from the top five European leagues.

Regarding the continental tournament, the Reds are 10-1-1, only losing against Inter Milan in the second leg of the Round of 16. Liverpool is the second-highest scoring team with 30 goals. Only Bayern Munich has scored more with 31.

Mohamed Salah, who didn’t start against the Wolves, has had an amazing season thus far. The Pharaoh has scored 31 goals in all competitions. He also leads the EPL in assists with 13. For Salah, Saturday’s game is even more special. In the final of 2018, he exited the field prior to the 30-minute mark with an injury issue. The Reds lost, 3-1.

Besides Salah, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota could also be difference-makers. Mane has scored 23 goals in all competitions, while Jota has scored 21. Plus, it’s well known that Real Madrid’s defense doesn’t respond well to speed. All three run like Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes. We think that’s justifies Liverpool being the betting favorite.

Thiago Alcantara and Divock Origi are listed as questionable, but Klopp already said things aren’t good. Thiago would be missed, but Origi not particularly.

Liverpool Expected Lineup for UCL Final: GK Alisson, DL A. Robertson, DC I. Konate, DC V. van Dijk, DR T. Alexander-Arnold, MC Naby Keita, MC Fabinho (quest), MC J. Henderson, FWL Luis Diaz, FWR M. Salah, FW Sadio Mane.
Liverpool Injuries for UCL Final: M T. Alcantara QUES, D Joe Gomez QUES, M Fabinho QUES, F Divock Origi OUT.

Real Madrid: Another Comeback?

Real Madrid have a very special relationship with the UCL. Some even say it’s mystical. In this edition, Los Blancos came from behind against PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City. There’s another adjective for that…insane.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team lost the first leg against the Parisians, and was down,1-0, in the second one. Then, in a 10-minute span, the Spanish side had a 3-2 lead. Against Chelsea, they won the first leg, 3-1. Then, at home, they were losing, 3-0. The game ended, 3-2. Recently, they were down by two goals against Manchester City before scoring two goals in stoppage time and a third in extra time to win it, 3-2. Again, insane.

If Liverpool have Salah, Real Madrid have Karim Benzema. The Frenchman has scored 44 goals in all competitions. He scored in Los Blancos’ last five UCL games. Vinicius Junior (21 goals) and Rodrygo (nine goals) have been his best allies to date.

“We’re preparing calmly for the game, focusing on what we need to do and how we want to do it. The excitement and motivation around the place are huge,” Ancelotti said in a press conference.

The Italian manager could become the first one ever to win four UCL titles.

Real Madrid won the La Liga title several weeks ago, which allowed Ancelotti to rest some players. However, last week, the usual starters played against Real Betis to stay in shape and in rhythm.

Los Blancos are offering a +245 price in the Soccer betting. You won’t find a more tempting deal than that.

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.
Real Madrid Injuries for UCL Final: D David Alaba QUES, F Gareth Bale QUES, D Miguel QUES,D Marcelo QUES.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Head-to-Head

  • Previous Matches: 8
  • Liverpool Victories: 3 (8 goals)
  • Real Madrid Victories: 4 (10 goals)
  • Draws: 1

These two met for the last time in the quarterfinals of the 2020-21 edition. Real Madrid won the first leg, 3-1, while the second finished scoreless. However, that series cannot be considered as the 2018 final rematch.

Speaking of that final game, that finished with a 3-1 victory for Real Madrid. Benzema and Gareth Bale were the scorers. Nevertheless, Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Loris Karius, was a factor in the result. He made two huge mistakes that ended in the first and third goals of the match.
