Liverpool vs Real Madrid Predictions
Key Stat: Liverpool have won 7 of the last 8 matches in all competitions, with the other result that was a draw
- Liverpool have won all their last 4 games in a row
- Liverpool are averaging 2.0 goals-per-game themselves over their last 10 games
- The Reds are unbeaten in their last 18 games in all competitions
Liverpool went very close to securing their third trophy of the season, but Manchester City comeback on an exciting last day of EPL meant that the Reds finished in second place. The Reds will be keen to get compensation tonight as they are trying to secure the biggest trophy in Europe after being ruthless the whole season. There is also recent history between these two clubs, as they have met in the 2018 final with the Spaniard side, who prevailed 3-1. Last season, they also met in the competition’s quarter-finals, with the Reds that prevailed in that circumstance. Despite finishing second in the EPL, Jurgen’s Klopp’s men have had a great season so far, as they have already won the FA Cup and the League Cup, and winning another major trophy like the Champions League will make this campaign truly memorable.
It’s a different story for Real Madrid, who, despite winning La Liga, have been outplayed in many knockout games like against PSG, Chelsea, and Manchester City. Of course, to make it so far, eliminating some of the best teams in Europe, we must recognise that they have found the mental strength to produce at the right moment, but we believe it won’t be easy to do it once again in the final.
Winning the Spanish League already at the end of April has allowed Carlo Ancelotti’s men to find some rest, and that can be a potential advantage ahead of Paris’s match, but we believe overall, Liverpool are a more solid team and will prove it here, completing their revenge for the 2017 defeat, which was primarily due to their goalkeeper errors, Karius.
Key Stat: Over 2.5 goals has been a winning bet in four of Liverpool’s last six games and in seven of Real’s last 10
- Liverpool are averaging 2.0 goals-per-game over their last 10 games
- Real Madrid average 2.5 over their last 10 fixtures
- Liverpool are averaging 2.5 goals per game in this Champions League season, while Real Madrid are averaging 2.3
Liverpool may have fallen short in the Premier League, but they have been an impressive machine this season, especially when scoring goals. With an average of 2.5 goals scored per game in this competition, it is pretty obvious to predict that there will be goals in this final, also considering that Real Madrid are averaging 2.3 goals per game themselves. Player for player, it is Liverpool who have the better squad, but Real have a fighting spirit, and this was clear in the way they fought back to win in all the precious knockout. Therefore, an entertaining final should be on the cards, with the Over 2.5 goals option that looks an excellent option.
