Standout Stats for the Champions League Final...

This week’s Standout Stats are for one of the biggest games of them all – the Champions League Final...

The last 7 finals have all seen both teams score, and there are plenty of other reasons to expect goals on Saturday night in Kiev...

Real Madrid v Liverpool

Champions League, Sat 7.45pm – BT Sport

Goals have been the theme throughout the season’s Champions League, with 80%+ of Knockout games going Over 2.5 Goals, Madrid boasting the top scoring player in Ronaldo and Liverpool being the top scoring team, 10 goals ahead of their Spanish opponents.

  • Real Madrid’s last 9 Champions League games have gone Over 2.5 Goals, as have 9 of Liverpool’s last 10

The Total Corners stats are also strong...

  • Over 10.5 Corners paying out in 9 of Madrid’s 12 games (75%), and each of Liverpool’s last 3 Champions League games seeing 10+ corners

The Goals and Corners present a couple of opportunities to mix & match the stats markets...

A Double on Over 2.5 Goals & Over 10.5 Corners pays around 6/4 (2.50).

William Hill offer 13/5 (3.60) for Over 2.5 Goals & Over 12 Corners.

If the game does turn out to be high scoring with stacks of corners, the spread betting options could produce a high result...

In their ‘Goals x Corners’ market, Sporting Index offer the chance to ‘Buy’ (bet high) at 37. For example, if there were 4 goals in the game and 12 corners, the result would be 48 (4 x 12) and anyone ‘Buying’ would win 11 x their stake.

Note: as always with spread betting, remember you can lose more than your original stake.

And we can’t leave this game without a look at the two star strikers...

Looking at the Scorers markets, it’s no surprise to see Cristiano Ronaldo and Mo Salah as the top two in the betting.

Ronaldo has landed Anytime Scorer bets in 17 of his last 20 games in all comps for club & country, Salah 15 out of 20.

  • Ronaldo is an odds-on Anytime Scorer, around 7/10 (1.70) – while Salah is odds-against with a best price 13/10 (2.30) available

Next stop, Russia...

I’ll be back next week with news on the World Cup, as the big kick off in Russia draws ever closer.

Enjoy the football...

Best wishes,
