Odds to Win the 2022 Champions League
Are the odds fair on Real Madrid to win the Champions League?
Before getting into Real’s Champions League form, we should take a look at how they’ve performed in LaLiga. As of May 6, Real has a 15-point lead over rival Barcelona.
Barca will not catch Real in LaLiga, which means Carlo Ancelotti’s squad will win the Primera Division. With the LaLiga title in their back pocket, Ancelotti’s team can concentrate on taking the Champions League.
The 3-1 second leg win over Manchester City was absolutely brilliant. It showed that when Karim Benzema and his mates put their minds to it, few teams can hang with El Blanco.
There’s a single match to determine the Champions League titlist. So in that sense, the odds are more than fair. Real Madrid versus Liverpool on May 28 can go either way.
So if you like Real, back them with confidence.
Are the odds fair on Liverpool FC to win the Champions League?
Before the Champions League semifinals started, Liverpool was a -110 co-favorite with Manchester City to win the title. So at the -103 odds, Pool is actually a better play after knocking out Villareal.
The reason for the softness in the Reds’ odds? Liverpool seemed to struggle in the second leg victory over Villarreal.
But we shouldn’t hold that against Pool. After all, Villarreal coach Unai Emery is a master at preparing his team for international competitions.
Most soccer handicappers knew the LaLiga squad wasn’t going to make it easy on Pool. So their form struggled some. No problem.
Liverpool remains one of the best teams in the world. Jurgen Klopp’s squad will show up and play well on May 28. So if you believe, Pool for sure is worth backing at the odds.
With more than 20 days before the final match, which team deserves a look to win the Champions League title?
These two teams have matches scheduled from now until May 28. In a way, Real has an edge over Liverpool because El Blanco can relax. No rival will catch Real for the LaLiga title.
The Reds are in a dog fight with Man City for the Premier League title. Pool is a point behind Manchester City and because the Citizens won’t have a chance to win the Champions League, we can expect Pep’s squad to concentrate on winning the Premier.
But even though Klopp’s team must fight hard in both leagues, we shouldn’t look past how talented Liverpool is. The Reds struggled versus Villarreal, but beating Villarreal on their pitch is one of the toughest things to do in club soccer.
Pool still won the match and they won it by scoring 3 goals. Overall, Pool won 5-2 on the aggregate.
Real is an excellent team. But the Sky Blues gave away the second leg, allowing El Blanco to score goals in minute 90, minute 91, and via a penalty kick in minute 95.
Klopp’s squad won’t be as sloppy. So right now, at the odds, Liverpool is the play. A lot can happen from now until May 28, though. So check back if you want to wait before making your play.
