Champions League Final – Too close to Call ?

June 1st, 2017

Arguably,  the two best club football teams in the world will meet this Saturday in the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final, at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

The defending champions Real Madrid will face Juventus in a rematch of the 1998 final with Real are slim favorites in this matchup, priced at +150 (2.50) on the moneyline with Juventus at +175 (2.75)  and the draw in regulation very much in play at +205 (3.05).

Real Madrid have won the Champions League 11 times including recently in 2014 and 2016, and they come into Saturday’s final as Spanish La Liga champions, led by the incomparable four-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristian Ronaldo.

But Juventus are a good match, featuring legendary Gianluigi Buffon in goal, having won Italy’s Serie A for the sixth straight year. Juve have allowed just one goal in their last seven matches combined.

Scoring could be even more difficult for Real Madrid if reports on Gareth Bale’s health are accurate. Bale suffered a right ankle tendon injury in November and had to leave last month’s Clasico against Barcelona after tweaking his calf. The Welsh national is still expected to play in front of what should be a pro-Real crowd in Cardiff.
