The win over the Sky Blues was one of the greatest comebacks in CL history. Karim Benzema scored 2 goals in extra time. If Real could beat the Blues and the Citizens, why couldn’t they take down Liverpool?

Final Betting Analysis: Real Madrid vs Liverpool
In the Premier League’s final matchweek, Pool still had a chance to beat Manchester City and win the EPL. If Pool had pulled off the EPL win, they’d be going for a rare fourth title of the season because earlier, Liverpool won the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup.
In any case, Pool wants to at least go 3-for-4. Doing so means beating Real Madrid and winning the title. No doubt, beating Real won’t be easy.
Carlo Ancelotti has El Blanco playing above their talent level. But Liverpool has something that Chelsea and Man City doesn’t.
The best fullback in soccer, Netherland’s national team captain Virgil Van Djik, ensures Liverpool’s defense gives up few opportunities.
Real knows they won’t stop Mane and Salah. So their best chance is to be ultra-aggressive. If Real plays overly aggressive, Liverpool will counter.
Liverpool is more disciplined than City. The Reds are more talented than Chelsea and Jurgen Klopp has his team playing while making few mistakes. Liverpool wins the Champions League with a regulation victory.
