Heading into the biggest game in club football here is a few betting tips to wet your appetite and make the game even more exciting than it already is.
Atletico to lift trophy 13/8
I see this as a 50/50 game with a slight edge to Atletico, so to be able to get Atletico at this kind of price is incredible. I can only assume their odds have gone up because people think Real are destined to achieve la decimal, but the smart money is on Atletico.
Diego Godin to score anytime 18/1
Real are weak at set pieces, Atletico have players who can take advantage of that, Godin is one of those players.
Atletico to win in extra time 20/1
Usually extra time is a waste of time as teams just play for penalties, but oddly enough this year there has been a number of games which have went to extra time and one of the teams has actually won the game (German cup, FA Cup, Europa League to name a few). At 20/1 it is worth a punt. As a side note you can also get the game to just go to extra time at 13/2
Quite honestly the markets for correct score and first goal scorer aren’t very good for this match. In fact most of the markets for this match aren’t particularly good unless you believe that Atletico are going to win the match. I haven’t put it in but you can get Atletico at 16/5 to win the match in 90 minutes and that is an excellent price considering how well Atletico have played in the Champions League this year as well as in La Liga.
