Liverpool and Real Madrid Vegas Odds

Game Preview

Reasons Why Liverpool are Favored to Win the 2022 Champions League

Liverpool are without a loss in the previous 18 games in all competitions. Actually, Jurgen Klopp’s men have lost only one game in 2022. Most of their 2022 games saw Liverpool win, usually by two or more goals difference.

Thanks to their superb run in 2022, the Reds were able to get ahold of two titles already. In March, they won the Carabao Cup, while on May 14, they won the FA Cup. Unfortunately for them, they failed to win the English Premier League, although they did come very close. The Reds finished the EPL season in the #2 spot with just one point fewer than Manchester City.   

Sure, they’re probably disappointed for not winning the Prem, but getting ahold of the UCL trophy would amp up the mood. So, can they do it? Top soccer betting sites think so, giving +100 on Liverpool to beat Real Madrid on Saturday.

One of the main reasons behind this is that Klopp will probably have all of his best players at his disposal. This includes both Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk, who didn’t start last Sunday’s game.

Van Dijk stayed on the bench the whole game, while Salah came onto the pitch in the second half. Even though Liverpool’s top scorer wasn’t 100% fit, he still managed to put on a fabulous performance that day – he scored the second goal for his team.

Can Real Madrid Upset the Odds Once Again?

It was no surprise that Real Madrid qualified for the Champions League knockout stage. Actually, what was kind of surprising is that they got to the playoffs after finishing top in their group.  

After losing 1-0 to PSG in Paris in the first-leg knockout, Real Madrid was given Vegas odds of +225 to advance to the next stage. Oddsmakers didn’t have faith in them, but Karim Benzema then stepped in and destroyed PSG with a hat-trick.

It was his first UCL hat-trick of the year, with another one following in the next match. He scored three goals in his team’s 3-1 win over Chelsea in London. Even though the last season’s UCL champs beat them in Madrid 3-2, it wasn’t enough to knock out Real out of the competition.

Next came the semifinal with Manchester City, the team that was the #1 favorite to win the Champions League at the time. Before the doubleheader, Vegas odds on Real Madrid qualifying for the UCL Final were as long as +235.

Nevertheless, they upset the odds again. After losing 4-3 in England, they played 2-1 in Madrid, which meant the game would go to the extra time. What’s interesting is that Man City had a 1-0 lead until the 90th minute when Rodrygo equalized. Then, just a minute later, he scored again.

It wouldn’t be Real Madrid if Benzema didn’t get in the spotlight. Five minutes into the extra time, Real’s no.9 scored the match-winning penalty.

Liverpool and Real Madrid Prediction

It’s no surprise Vegas odds are leaning in favor of Liverpool. Still, judging by what we’ve seen from Real Madrid this season in the Champions League, this team mustn’t be underestimated. They might not win, but they can surely make things way more interesting than expected.
