Bet on Real Madrid +140 Because…
Real Madrid is one of the best striking teams on the planet. Although Barcelona’s Big 3 of Neymar, Messi, and Suarez is awfully good, Madrid’s big two of Gareth Bale and the best player on the pitch, Christiano Ronaldo, might be better. Real has such a good offense that they outscored their opponents 32 to 17 during the tournament. Real can strike from anywhere on the pitch.
Bet on Juventus +187 Because…
Juventus’s defense is close to impenetrable. Juventus only allowed 3 goals during the entire Champions League Tournament. That’s amazing. The team from Italy is also very patient on offense. They wait for their opponent to make a mistake as evidenced by their 21 goals during the tournament.
Bet The Draw +225 Because…
A case can be made to bet on the draw, but that wouldn’t be very fun. Juventus’s defense is so stingy, and their offense is so patient, that I can see a situation where they just play ball possession with Real and force the match into extra time.
Real Madrid vs Juventus UEFA Champions League Final Pick
Juventus has no problem playing keep away until extra time. That’s when they’ll start getting aggressive. It’s a terrific strategy that could bear fruit if Ronaldo and Bale are as aggressive as they usually are. Both men figure to be tired by the ninetieth minute. Putting a few bucks on the draw makes sense.
Juventus’s offense is underrated. They have decent forwards in Argentinians Higuan and Dybala. Midfielder Sami Khedira is one of the better midfielders in the world.
Real isn’t unbeatable. The team from La Liga did lose to Atletico Madrid in one of their semifinal matches. I think they make a mistake early, which leads to a Juventus goal. Once Juventus gets one up, their awesome defense takes charge.
I like Juventus to win 1 to 0.
