After months of exciting matches, this year's UEFA Champions League campaign comes to an end. There are only two teams left on the battlefield: Real Madrid and Juventus. The first team, a record holder football giant, with eleven Champions League titles, including the first and the most recent one is considered to be the best club in football's history. But Juventus is not far behind, despite having "only" two Champions League titles, they are one of the four teams in history to win all major European football club competitions. Both clubs are also dominant forces in their national league competitions (both have 33 national championships and won their respectful leagues this year). It is the perfect final with two best football clubs at the moment. So who is the bookmakers favourite?
Suprisingly, despite their history as well as recent performances (2 CL titles in last 3 years), Real Madrid are not the favourite of the bookmakers. Most top bookmakers believe that the Italian team has a slightly better chances for winning the trophy with Bet365

As for other interesting bets, Both to Score
option looks very interesting. Despite being famous for their inpenetrable defence, Juve has also a great offensive potential with Higuain, Dybala and Pjanic upfront. They should certainly be a danger for Madrid defence. As for Spanish team, the attack formation of Los Blancos, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Alvaro Morata, Isco or James Rodriguez is considered the strongest in the world. Even without Gareth Bale, Madrid should score a goal in this game. Thus, despite common opinion, BTS
option for evens odds (2.00)
from William Hill
is very tempting.
In contrast to the above paragraph, most bookmakers and football experts do not foresee a lot of goals in this match. This will be a clash of two similar teams that will want to neutralise their best assets, thus, it seems it will be more about strategy than quick, offensive style of playing. If you agree with the majority of the experts, you can bet on Under 2,5 goals in a match
option for 4/6 (1.66)
odds from Unibet
. Both BTS and Under 2,5 options do not exclude each other, as a 1:1 draw in a regular time and penalties is quite a possible option.
