Liverpool Faces Real Madrid in the Champions League Final on SaturdayPublished May 26, 2022 by Florin P
The Champions League final is played in Paris and the Parc des Princes, where Liverpool has a slight advantage against Real Madrid.
The most important match of the year in international football is scheduled for Saturday afternoon when Liverpool takes on Real Madrid. The two teams square off in Paris, as they try to win the Champions League final in the last meaningful match of the season. Elsewhere, teams try to avoid relegation and salvage terrible years in some of the strongest European championships.
Liverpool and Real Madrid Play the Champions League Final in Paris
Liverpool starts with the first chance against Real Madrid, after delivering more convincing performances in the Champions League. They missed out on the opportunity to win all three important trophies this year, after finishing second to Manchester City in the Premier League. Ahead of this match, they have three players doubtful and Origi is certain not to play, but they still have a decent chance of winning.
Real Madrid won the domestic championship but didn’t prevail in the Copa del Rey, so they also find for just two objectives. The thrilling victory over Manchester City brought them to the final, but they now face an even more difficult opponent. 1XBet credits them with the second chance and odds of 5/2, while punters who bet on Liverpool to win will be paid at 11/10 if they emerge victoriously.
St Etienne Fights Auxerre for a Ligue 1 Spot
St. Etienne won just enough points not to relegate directly but will need to defeat Auxerre to remain in the French first division. They play the first match on the road and have several players missing due to injury, so they are slight underdogs. 1XBet offers odds of 17/10 on the visitors to prevail while crediting the team coming from the second league with odds of 3/2. Auxerre has a lot of experience in promotion games and hasn’t lost in the last eight games, while St. Etienne is in bad form and winless in a month.
AZ Alkmaar Start as Favorites on the Road against Vitesse
AZ Alkmaar will have to settle for a place in Europe’s second-tier competition and only if they defeat Vitesse in the two legs. The opening match is played on the road, but recent results and head-to-head scores highlight their favorite status. Punters get excellent odds of 13/10 at bet365 sports if they back the visitors to win and 2/1 on the home side to win the first round. Arnhem stunned Ajax in the last home game and is well capable of winning at least one point against AZ Alkmaar.
One Last Chance for Excelsior to Return to Eredivisie
Excelsior dominated the first leg against Den Haag and should have won by a wide margin, but conceded an overtime equalizer. Now they play on the road and suddenly the odds are against them, with bet365 sports offering odds of 13/10. Den Haag didn’t matter offensively in most of the game, but the point salvaged in the first round can weigh heavily in the balance. Odds of 11/10 on them to win highlight the fact that this is still a balanced match where anything can happen.
