Real Madrid Champions League Final Preview

Real Madrid Champions League Final Preview
In a clash of Titans, on Saturday June 3rd at 2:45pm EST the European season comes to a close with the last game of the season, The UEFA Champions League final. Juventus and Real Madrid square off in Cardiff. Let’s look at the tale of the tape for Spain’s representative.

Real Madrid 2016-2017 Betting Trends

The Galacticos can cement themselves as the standard bearers of the Champions League this Saturday June 3rd. Hoisting the trophy in Wales would mean the Spanish Giants have won this competition 12 times and would mean they are the first team ever to win it back to back. And they have been on a goal scoring rampage in this season’s competition.

In 12 games this season in the group stage and knockout round Real Madrid are 8-3-1. Their only defeat was 2-1 loss in the second leg of the semi-final at the Vicente Calderon when they were protecting a 3 goal lead against Atletico.

Fortune also smiled down upon the defending Champions in the quarterfinals against German powerhouse Bayern Munich. In the 1st leg in Germany, Arturo Vidal missed a penalty for the home side that would have made it 2-0. In the 2nd halves of both legs Bayern went down to 10 men, controversially, and Ronaldo was not flagged for being offside twice and scored on both occasions. That contributed to CR7′s team leading stats of 10 goals and 6 assists in this competition.

Karim Benzema Real Madrid 5 +100000

When breaks like this fall for you it is not hard to see how they lead the competition with 32 goals. And they have needed those goals as they have conceded 16 and only kept 1 clean sheet all season. Goalkeeper Keylor Navas has been busy having to make 34 saves in 1020 minutes.

In each of their last 2 away games Real have also given away penalties, seemingly a function of their high risk high reward style. But where you would have made book on Madrid this season are the Overs. All 12 of their games have gone over 2.5 goals. 7 of the 12 have gone over 3.5 goals.

These numbers are not limited to just this competition where their games are averaging 4 goals per contest. In winning La Liga this season the Galactico’s 38 games saw 147 goals or 3.87 per game. They simply have decided to play this way and it has not let them down yet.

The unstoppable force meets the immovable object

In our previous breakdown of Juventus we detailed their stingy style of play.

When these two team meet on Saturday it will be a contrast of footballing philosophy. What wins when all out attack meets a rock solid defense. We will continue to look at this game in all aspects during the week so that you can have very angle covered for Saturday.
