Reds to gain Champions League redemption


Saturday’s Champions League Final promises to be a classic as English rivals Tottenham and Liverpool do battle in Madrid.

This will be Spurs’ first ever European Cup final, while five-time winners the Reds will be eyeing redemption after losing last year’s final 3-1 to Real Madrid.

Both engineered incredible comebacks to reach this stage and expect more drama at the Metropolitano.

Liverpool to win and both to score @ 49/20

The pair’s only previous meeting in European competition came in the semi-finals of the 1972/73 UEFA Cup and the Merseysiders succeeded on that occasion, drawing 2-2 overall to progress on away goals before beating Borussia Monchengladbach in the final.

History is on their side, while Jurgen Klopp’s men seem to have Tottenham’s number, having won both Premier League meetings 2-1 and a repeat of that scoreline is 8/1.

In fact, having been defeated in just one of the last 14 meetings, it appears Liverpool’s to lose. Add into the mix that the last eight Champions League finals have ended with BTTS, this looks the way to go.

Salah Anytime Scorer @ 29/20

Football has a funny way of coming full circle and after leaving the field in tears 12 months ago after damaging his shoulder against Real Madrid, Mohamed Salah will be desperate to perform.

The Egyptian is perceived to have had a poor season but was still the joint-top scorer in the Premier League with 22 goals.

After also missing the semi-final second-leg win over Barca, Salah will be raring to go and seems destined to find the net.

Over 2.5 goals @ 5/6

As mentioned above, BTTS has been a feature of recent finals, while there have been over 2.5 goals in Liverpool’s last three European games.

That bet has also occurred in five of the last six meetings between these sides, while both sides have netted in seven of their most recent eight clashes.

An over 3.5 goals bet would have paid out for the last two finals and that is 21/10, but one less is worth a look.
