2016-17 UEFA Champions League Final Betting Tips

June 2, 2017 by Posted in Soccer Tips

Millennium Stadium in Cardiff will host one of the most awaited games of the season – the UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid and Juventus on Saturday.

Both sides have won their respective domestic titles and would be gunning to end the season on a high. The added incentive for Real Madrid is to become the first ever team to defend the Champions League trophy.

A truly versatile side – Real
Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane have been effective without being flamboyant this year. The squad has as many as 20 players who have played more than 1,000 minutes this season. More importantly, they have shown their ability to unlock defenses almost at will.

The toughest call for Zidane ahead of the match is to choose between Isco and Gareth Bale, the local hero. The Spaniard was an able deputy when Bale was injured. However, Bale provides great option with his direct attack in the wings.

Can Juventus gift Buffon a deserved European title?
Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus have one of the meanest defence across all leagues. Even though they lost a number of key players over the summer, the Bianconeri have not let their guard down. If Madrid think that Juve will be pushovers, it is only at their peril!

The 39-year-old iconic goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has not yet won a Champions League – despite a career spanning many titles. His ability to keep Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale and Karim Benzema at bay will determine if Juve can gift him the title or not.

Real Madrid is the most successful club having won the title 11 times – twice in last three years. Overall, they have reached 14 finals.

Juventus have an equally distinguished European record having reached the finals eight times. However, they have won only two Champions League titles, the last of which was in 1996.

The last time these two sides played in the Champions League final was in 1997-98 when Juventus captained by Zidane lost to Real Madrid 1-0.

It will be a very interesting final for sure with both sides chasing records. Odds of $3 (bet365) make Juve the underdogs while Madrid are offered odds of $2.70 (bet365).

TIP: Real Madrid to win – $2.70 at bet365

Ronaldo loves to score in Champions League and at odds of $2.25 (William Hill), he is a good pick to score any time.

TIP: Ronaldo to score anytime – $2.25 at William Hill
