We can’t wait for the Champions League final on the 26th of May in Kyiv. Real Madrid, the holders who are looking for a third straight title, face Liverpool in the final.
The best betting offers for UEFA Champions League final will be available a day or two before the games, but there are plenty already on offer. If you fancy a bit of early punting action with your UEFA Champions League bets, now might be the time to get the value.
The majority of UEFA Champions League betting specials relative to the individual semi-final matches will be available a day or so before kick-off, but here are some early options to take into consideration:
A quick look at the Champions League Outrights, sees the defending champions Real Madrid installed at 8/11 favourites, with Liverpool priced at 11/10.
Real may be favourites, but the bookies are aware that Liverpool particularly provide a serious challenge to the Spaniard’s’ quest to secure a 13th European crown.
Away from the final, the most popular market is “Top Goalscorer” betting, with all goals scored from the Group Stage onwards counting toward a player’s end total.
There isn’t much competition for Cristiano Ronaldo in this market. The Champions League’s all time record goalscorer with 119, has 15 to his name this season, seven ahead of anyone else.
BT Sport will once again show the 2018 Champions League Final live, along with all matches from the tournament across the season, while ITV will have coverage of the final on terrestrial television services.
The 2018 Champions League final takes place on 26th May 2018 at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine.
The 2018 UEFA Champions League Final will be the 63nd season of Europe’s premier club football competition, with Real Madrid looking to win the trophy for the third consecutive season and 13th time in all.
The difficulty in defending the title, is largely down to the tournament’s new format, first introduced in 1992, when it went from being a tournament solely involving champions, to encompassing those that finish in second, third and even fourth in domestic leagues, thus providing stiffer competition throughout even the early stages.
The winners of the 2018 Champions League Final will automatically be entered into the European Super Cup and FIFA World Club Cup for the following season.
Real Madrid are the most successful team in the history of the competition. Behind the Spanish giants are AC MIlan with seven, then Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Liverpool, all with five wins a piece, both Bayern Munich and Barcelona look most likely to dent Real Madrid’s record in the future, but Jurgen Klopp is well placed to add another to Liverpool’s tally this year.
2011 – Barcelona 3-1 Manchester United
2012 – Chelsea 1-1 Bayern Munich (4-3 on pens)
2013 – Bayern Munich 2-1 Borussia Dortmund
2014 – Real Madrid 4-1 Atletico Madrid (aet)
2015 – Barcelona 3-1 Juventus
2016 – Real Madrid 1-1 Atletico Madrid (5-3 pens)
2017 – Real Madrid 4-1 Juventus

Los Blancos are looking for a third straight European crown, and a 13th in all, while the Reds are craving a sixth in total and first since 2005.
This game could also be decisive in the race for the Ballon d’Or, as Cristiano Ronaldo goes up against Mohamed Salah.
Salah has scored 44 goals in all competitions, while Ronaldo has won the award for the last two years. Both are odds on to score anytime (Salah at 11/10 and Ronaldo at 4/6 with Betfair).
The impact of a goal could swing the odds of being crowned at the end of the year in either’s favour, but right now Ronaldo is favourite on both counts.
The Champions League Final of 2018 has the potential to be a classic encounter, with two quality teams set to battle it out.
