Where: Stade de France, Saint-Denis, France
In what will be a rematch of the 2018 Champions League Final, Liverpool and Madrid are set to square off Saturday in Paris in what should be a match for the ages. Having dominated the Champions League from 2014 to 2018, is this the start of another run from the most recent Kings of Spanish football? Or is their propensity for the dramatics finally due to catch up with them against the supremely talented Liverpool?
Let's take a closer look at the latest Champions League Final odds.
Champions League Final Odds: Liverpool @ +100 (Bet $100 to win $100)
Despite coming into this game as the favorite, Liverpool was close to not even making it here after a semi-final battle against Villarreal that they eventually won 3-2 after not taking a shot on target in the first half. Winning all six games in group play (Group B) Liverpool then beat Inter Milan (2-1 aggregate) and Beneficia (6-4) aggregate on their way to their first Champions League Final since 2018-2019.
Finishing second in Premier League this season in what came down to the final weekend of matches, Liverpool did win the FA Cup and League Cup recently, and outside of Manchester United have proved the most dominant team in England by a margin. Led by head coach Jürgen Klopp, The Reds rely on a talented cast of some of the world’s best strikers, with Columbian striker Luis Díaz leading the way.
Champions League Final Odds: Real Madrid @ +260 (Bet $100 to win $100)
After running away with La Liga with nearly a month left in the season, Real Madrid handled business in Champions League as well as reaching their first finals since 2018. And they did so in dramatic fashion, using stoppage time to beat Manchester City as Rodrygo scored in the 90th and 91st minute to tie the game, as Karim Benzema scored in extra time to seal the win.
The win was just the latest heart-stopper for Real Madrid supporters, as the team mounted comebacks against both Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea to help them reach this final, winning 3-2 and 5-4 on aggregate, respectively. While veteran Benzema has not had the best season of his career, head coach Carlo Ancelotti has been able to rely on young players such as Rodrygo and David Alaba to carry them to a chance to earn their (already) record 14th Champions League title.
