The 2017/18 Champions League has reached the business end of the tournament and we are now looking towards the final, which will take place on Saturday 26th May 2018.
The Champions League final will be played in Kiev, Ukraine at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium. This arena is the second largest stadium in Eastern Europe and the new construction, which saw a roof added in 2011, means it is one of the most impressive football stadiums in the world.
In addition to hosting the 2017/18 Champions League final, the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium has previously hosted the 2012 European Championship final between Spain and Italy. We already know who have reached the Champions League final, so who can win it?
1. Favorites to Win 2018 Champions League Final
Before the quarterfinal, the biggest favourites to qualify for the Final, was Barcelona and Manchester City...
Barcelona was available at 2.00. The Spanish giants were not at their best in the matches against Chelsea but still came through 4-1 on aggregate. Unfortunately, they lost with Roma in a spectacular match which nobody could predict.
When discussing the main contenders for the Champions League, it is impossible to leave out Real Madrid. The two-time defending champions may not have been at their best domestically this season but their victory over Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich shows that they deserve to be in the Final.
Real Madrid are 1.73 to win the final (they were 5.50 to win the tournament before the semifinals) and they are favourites to lift the trophy.
2. Who Else Can Win UEFA Champions League Final?
You must go back to the 2012/13 Champions League final to find the last time a team outside Spain and Italy reached the final. It was an all-German affair won by Bayern Munich. Unfortunately, they've lost with Real and now only Liverpool can change the Spanish dominance in the UCL.
Liverpool have what it takes to beat Real Madrid, but so did Bayern or PSG. For some reason, Real tends to win important matches in the knock out phases, even if they perform worst than their opponents... That's why Liverpool is priced at 2.10 to lift the trophy.
So if we would have to make a shot, our Champions League Final predictions would be that Real will win once again.
