After 11 grueling months of qualifying campaigns, the group stage and knockout rounds, the Champions League hosts its final May 26 in Kiev, Ukraine. This year’s quest for European supremacy features Real Madrid of the Spanish La Liga and the English Premier League’s most successful European club, Liverpool.

Bet on the Champions League Final at bet365

Real has already been crowned champions of Europe a record 12 times, including the last two years. Meanwhile, Liverpool seeks its sixth reign and second triumph over Real following their 1-0 victory in the 1980-81 European Cup final. The teams have met four times competitively in the past with each side winning and losing twice.

Real is favored by most sportsbooks though, including bet365, which on May 21 listed them 6/5 to win the match with Liverpool 21/10 and a draw over 90 minutes at 13/5.

Individual prop bets
Some of the most popular prop bets focus on Real legend Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool newcomer Mohamed Salah. They both led their teams in scoring in the Champions League (Ronaldo had 15 goals, and Salah tied for second with teammate Roberto Firmino at 10).

Between them, the two squads have slammed in 76 goals during the event. As of May 21, bet365 odds have Ronaldo 11/4 to score two or more goals with Salah at 15/4 and Firmino 9/1. If you’re taking one of these snipers to strike at least twice you may also be interested in the 2.5-goals over/under with the over at 4/9 and the under 17/10.

In addition, both teams to score was listed at 2/5 yes and 7/4 no.
