On Saturday, we see England vs Spain in the Champions League Final, with Liverpool taking on Galácticos aka Real Madrid at Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex in Kiev, Ukraine. As with all major finals, Spreadsheet Betting’s team have been studying the form and we’ve picked out some of the bets we believe offer decent value for your Champions League Final Betting.
As we’ve picked our bets way before the teams are even announced, we’ll be updating this post closer to the start of the match so that you have a good selection of bets. As usual, we pick selections from SkyBet, however, Champions League Odds tend to be relatively similar across the different bookmakers.
As with most bets, they are normally settled over 90 mins unless otherwise stated, but as with a lot of Champions League Finals, the games tend to be quite tight and therefore we’ve taken that into account when making our selections.
Bet 1 – 10/1 £10 stake returns £110
Salah to score, Liverpool to win, BTTS and Ramos to be carded
Salah has scored 10 goals in 12 Champions League appearances with a 74% Shot of Target Ratio. Liverpool has scored 40 goals in 12 appearances, conceding just 13 but have a tendency to concede when taking the lead. Sergio Ramos has 3 yellow cards in 10 appearances, but 7 yellows & 2 reds in 26 La Liga appearances make him the prime candidate for a card in a highly charged game.
Bet 2 – 33/1 £5 stake returns £170
Ronaldo & Salah to score, over 2.5 goals, 4+ corners each team and Ramos & Lovren to be carded
Similar to Salah above, Ronaldo has been on fire this season, scoring 15 goals in 12 Champions League appearances. Only 3 matches across the 24 matches played by these two teams have been under 2.5 goals throughout the Champions League competition, so we expect to see goals scored. The corners bet seems relatively safe at 4 each when you have two offensively minded teams looking to push forward at every opportunity. Whilst Lovren has only 2 bookings across 11 appearances, he is that player that you always feel nervous about doing something silly or mistiming a challenge, so is a good double-act with Ramos.
