This Saturday’s game is a tough one to call, making picking any Real Madrid vs Liverpool FC predictions in terms of an outright result very tricky. Los Blancos have been below their best domestically in 2017/18, finishing third in La Liga and never really coming close to mounting a title challenge. However, in the Champions League they have been electric.
The latest Champions League odds make the current champions ever so slight favourites and when you look at their route to the 2018 Final, you can see why. Zinedine Zidane’s men have had to navigate tough double headers against PSG, Juventus and Bayern Munich. It takes quite a team to see all those giants off.
In contrast, Liverpool’s passage to the Final has been much smoother, with clashes against Porto, Man City and Roma far easier rides. On paper, Los Blancos have much the better team with top class players in every position, while the Reds really only have a top class forward line and little else.
