Why bet on Liverpool versus Real Madrid?
Liverpool is in their best form of the season. The Reds didn’t play great in the first leg, but other than the loss to Real, Pool has looked good. The win over Aston Villa is more important than many may believe. Earlier in the season, the loss to RM may have caused a chain reaction. Not anymore. Liverpool brushed off the loss and beat a decent EPL squad. Liverpool, like most soccer teams, plays better on their pitch. Expect the Reds to be more motivated on Wednesday than they were in the first leg.

Real Madrid Vs Liverpool Final Betting Analysis
No doubt, the Reds will play better on Wednesday than they did in the first leg. When Liverpool is on, few teams can beat them. The problem for Pool this season? They haven’t played consistently.
The lack of consistent form could hurt Liverpool because Zidane’s team is on fire. Real Madrid has won 6 straight. Modric, Benzema, Kroos, Asensio and the rest are in excellent form.
Zidane can take numerous players off the bench who could change the course of a match. Liverpool must rely on Salah to get their goals for them. That gives Real’s manager a massive edge.
The odds imply Liverpool easily wins this. The odds aren’t exactly wrong, RM has a 2-goal lead and would win on the aggregate even if they lose this game by a goal, but the odds make Pool an underlay. Real is playing too well to ignore. Zinedine’s team is the pick.
