Champions League Final Tips

Saturday is the final of arguably the finest football tournament in the world. Real Madrid take on Juventus in Cardiff. Its been a cracking tournament and the final is between arguably the best two teams in Europe at the moment. Perhaps the mighty Bayern Munich should be here instead of Real but they are certainly the top 3 teams in Europe now.

Madrid, I think were lucky to get past Bayern. A couple of sending offs really did help them. They were fortunate to have killed the tie off with Atletico at home too as they were heavily under pressure in the return leg. Madrid have been free scoring but they haven't come across this Juventus team who are really tight. The only conceded two in the group stages and shut out Barcelona over 2 legs. Barcelona didn't even look like scoring in the whole 90 minutes. They only conceded one to Monaco in the knock out stages.

In terms of who is going to win this, you could make an argument either way. I do prefer Juventus though. They are hard to break down and Dybala is one of the best strikers I've seen this year. Ronaldo getting a little old now and not banging them in as much as he has done in previous seasons. I'd price this up as a coin toss type of bet. Any of the 3 results wouldn't be a surprise.

Looking at the way Madrid are slight favourites, it makes sense to oppose them for the value. On the Asian Handicap you can get Juventus +0 at 2.07. Draw no bet which is the same is only 1.9.

At bet365 they have the bore draw offer too. I can see this being a tight game with a single goal deciding it. Juventus 1-0 is 8.0 whereas Madrid 1-0 is 7.5. If you bet on these and it ends 0-0 you get your money back.
