After a 7-6 aggregate semi-final victory over Roma, we now know who will compete in the Champions League final.
Five-time champions Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26th in Kiev, and both teams will be hoping to add their already impressive European history.
Now, all the major bookmakers have released the odds:
Taking Real Madrid’s recent success in the competition into account, those odds are certainly generous. With Ronaldo on their side, anything seems possible for Los Blancos.
Although he didn’t perform to his usual standards in their latest outing against Bayern, the former Manchester United star has bagged 15 goals for Madrid during this Champions League campaign.
On the other hand, with the attacking front three of Salah, Mane and Firmino, 9/5 is similarly a generous offer for those who fancy a bet on the underdog.
On their way to the final, Madrid overcame PSG, Juventus and Bayern Munich, while Liverpool comfortably defeated Porto and Manchester City, and most recently Roma.
The odds are released, the scene is set, and now, the waiting game begins.
