Why is Liverpool a safe bet to win?

Real is good enough to beat Liverpool, but the LaLiga squad isn’t as talented on every level the way Pool is.

The Reds have a shot to win their third league title, and most important of this season, because they’re excellent in goal, have a fantastic attack, and arguably the best fullback in soccer plays for them.

Allisson is one of the top goalkeepers in the world. Sadio Mane creates as well as any midfield player in soccer not named Kevin De Bruyne, and Mohamed Salah is one of the top strikers in the Premier. Fullback Virgil Van Djik controls the back. Van Djik is like a point guard on defense, dictating where the defense sets, who to mark and how to defend against free kicks and corner kicks.

Possible Line-Up

  • Alisson
  • Alexander-Arnold
  • Konate
  • Van Dijk
  • Robertson
  • Thiago
  • Fabinho
  • Henderson
  • Salah
  • Jota
  • Diaz

Liverpool’s Last 5

  • Win – 3-1 vs. Wolverhampton
  • Win – 1-2 vs. Southampton
  • Draw – 0-0 vs. Chelsea
  • Win – 1-2 vs. Aston Villa
  • Draw – 1-1 vs. Tottenham

Why is Real Madrid a safe bet to win?

For the third time during the Champions League knockout stage, experts are declaring that Real Madrid will lose to an English Premier League team. LaLiga’s best first faced EPL power and Champions League defending titlist Chelsea.

Real played fantastic when upsetting Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in the first leg. In the second leg, Real fell to Chelsea 2-3 at Santiago Bernabeau, but because they had beaten the Blues so thoroughly in the first leg, El Blanco won the aggregate.

Then in their two matches with Man City, Real provided one of the most incredible comebacks in Champions League history. Down 3-4 in the second leg, Karim Benzema rallied to a couple of goals in extra time for an amazing 3-1 second leg win and a 6-5 victory on the aggregate. If Real could beat Chelsea and Manchester City, why couldn’t they beat Liverpool?

Possible Line-Up

  • Courtois
  • Carvajal
  • Militao
  • Alaba
  • Mendy
  • Modric
  • Casemiro
  • Kroos
  • Asensio
  • Benzema
  • Vinicius

Real Madrid’s Last 5

  • Draw – 0-0 vs. Real Betis
  • Draw – 1-1 vs. Cadiz
  • Win – 6-0 vs. Levante
  • Loss – 1-0 vs. Atletico Madrid
  • Win – 3-1 vs. Manchester City

Liverpool vs. Real Madrid Betting Prediction

Real is talented enough to beat Liverpool. If El Blanco could beat Chelsea and Manchester City, they can beat the Reds. But before jumping on Real, it’s important to note a couple of things. First, Real got to play two matches to get past Chelsea and Man City. The Champions League Final is a single match.

Second, neither the Blues nor the Citizens field as good of a defense as Liverpool. Van Djik, the Netherlands’ national team captain, is the best fullback in the world. He can mark Karim Benzema or dictate how the defense shuts down Real’s best player.

That brings us to the final two reasons to back Pool. Benzema must dominate for Real to win. If the French star doesn’t, Real loses. The other reason to back the Reds is because they’re motivated after losing the Premier League title to rival Man City.

Again, Real can win this. But too many things must happen for Carlo Ancelotti’s squad to take home the trophy. Jurgen Klopp’s team wins their third league title of the season.
