What can we expect from the final?

With news that two key Liverpool players have largely recovered from their injuries and are in contention for the final, the team’s fans are in high spirits.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: ‘The odds certainly suggest Liverpool are the ones to beat in Paris, and while our traders are seemingly convinced it’ll be another European trophy for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds, punters actually think the opposite, with the majority of money taken so far being in favour of the Spanish outsiders.’

The betting firm’s odds of Liverpool winning in 90 minutes currently stand at 21/20, compared to 2/5 for Real Madrid.

Odds of lifting the trophy present more of a mixed picture, however, with Liverpool at 8/15 and Real Madrid at 27/20.
