bet365 make Barcelona heavy odds on favourites, and it’s hard to disagree with this and make a case for Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus side. Barca are currently 8/13 to win in 90 minutes, and are 1/3 to lift the trophy by any method.
If you think Juventus can pull off a shock victory and win in 90 minutes, they are 5/1 with bet365. While to lift the trophy and compete their own treble, Juve are 12/5.
This is an unprecedented final, with both teams competing for the treble of domestic league and cup, and the Champions League trophy, for the first time ever. So whoever wins, it has already been an outstanding season for both teams.
On paper it looks like it might be a more open match than we would normally expect from a final involving an Italian team.
Unlike the majority of Italian teams over the last 10-15 years, Juventus are a far more attack minded outfit. Just look back at their semi-final victory over Real Madrid, a stereotypical Italian sides would have just played defensive football, but this side took the game to Madrid.
Unless Juve break with recent form and go back to typical Italian football, I would expect goals tonight – with most of them probably ending up in the back of the Juventus net. If you think Barcelona are going to win comfortably, then you can get 6/4 on Barca to win in 90 minutes and for there to be Over 2.5 Goals in the match.
If Juve come at Barca, there will be gaps galore for Messi, Neymar and Suarez to expose, and that makes the 8/11 on Barcelona to score twice or more look very attractive. If you think Messi and co might fill their boots, then you can get 9/4 on Barcelona to score three times or more (all in 90 minutes).
The Method Of Victory is also a popular bet with bet365, you can get 10/1 on Barcelona to win in extra-time, or 14/1 on penalties. If you think Juve can drag the match beyond 90 minutes, then you can get 22/1 on the Italians to win in extra-time, or 14/1 for them to win on penalties.
Don’t miss out on the £50.00 free bet tonight, this is a regular bet365 offer, and there are also plenty of offers from bet365 for existing customers, including another free bet of up to £50.00 for your first bet placed on mobile.
The Champions League final kicks off at 7.45pm tonight, and is live on both ITV1 and Sky Sports 1.
