Liverpool To Win

Real Madrid have been absolutely dominant in this competition, lifting the Champions League in three of the past four seasons but they could will struggle to beat Liverpool over 90 minutes in my opinion. Zinedine Zidane’s men have struggled defensively against the better attacking sides all season long in La Liga and they won’t face many better than Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane who have netted 29 of Liverpool’s 40 Champions League goals this season.

They are vulnerable to the counter-attack and also have a poor record against English opposition of late – Real have won just one of their last four Champions League meetings against English opposition! Get 85/40 on Liverpool winning in 90 minutes under the watchful eye of Jurgen Klopp.

Both teams to score

Now this is a selection that is going against the grain of these sides head to head records! Real Madrid have met Liverpool five times in competitive matches throughout history and not once has both teams to score landed.

However, I believe that history will be made in Kiev on Saturday night when both nets ripple. Liverpool have had 28 matches involving both teams to score this season, including eight of their 14 Champions League matches this season.

Real Madrid have defensive issues which I have already raised and the fact that they have been in both teams to score fixtures in 10 of their last 11 matches is proof of that. 188BET are offering 2/5 on this landing.

Enhanced odds

188 are giving you the enhanced odds special of Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 4/1 which is a combination of my two selections, so that will be my one 2018 Champions League final tip on Saturday. Thanks 188BET!
