Final Early Betting Analysis: Liverpool vs. Real Madrid
On paper, this might be a Liverpool slam dunk. Don’t get us wrong. Real has a shot, but there are two areas where they will struggle.
First, Real’s goalie, Thibaut Curtois, although excellent, will have trouble versus Liverpool’s attack. Real’s backline isn’t as talented as Pool’s.
Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah will be very difficult to contain. If you decide to stop one, you will have trouble stopping the other. Not just that, but Trent Alexander-Arnold plays excellent one-on-one defense and attacks.
On the backline, Virgil Van Djik will help to control Real’s best player, Karim Benzema. And if Real can find a way to get off a clean shot, Alisson will be in goal. At this point, Liverpool offers overlay odds to win straight up. The Reds are the play.
