in this episode, UK football betting expert Charlie Mullan and I preview Saturday's Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Liverpool in Paris. This game will feature two of Europe's most successful clubs. Real Madrid has won 13 European cups; seven have come in the Champions League era. The Los Blancos have not lost a UCL final since Liverpool beat Madrid for the 1981 final in Paris. Real Madrid also won La Liga - giving them a domestic-European double in 2022. Liverpool has won six European titles. The Red won four from 1977-1984. Liverpool added 2005 and 2019 during the Champions League era. Earlier this year, Liverpool won the Carbaro Cup and FA Cup before falling one point of a possible quadruple. Liverpool and Real Madrid met twice in European finals. The Reds won the 1981 final in Paris. Charlie remembers watching the final, which was a rare site in the UK. Alan Kennedy scored the only goal of this game. This game was in an era where English teams ruled Europe for six straight years. Madrid got revenge over Liverpool 37 years later in Kiev. Mohamed Salah left this game after sustaining a shoulder injury. Gareth Bale's brace off the bench help the Los Blancos win their their straight UCL Final. We look at two amazing talents. First, Madrid's Karim Benzema has scored 42 goals, which 15 of those have been in the Champions League. The Frenchman also scored back-to-back hat tricks against PSG and Chelsea. Salah has scored 31 goals in another Golden Boot season for the Egyptian. Charlie brings up how Salah has not scored many goals for Liverpool in recent weeks. I respond with Salah's one Champions League goal in the knockout round against Inter Milan. With his lack of European goals, Salah could be due for revenge against the side, which sidelined him in the 2018 final. In every final, there is always an x-factor. I like Rodrygo's clutch goal for Real Madrid. Charlie likes Luka Modric's precision passing. For Liverpool, Charlie is worried that Virgil van Dijk's availability will be huge. He also looks for Sadio Mane to join Salah in attack. The Senegal striker also scored Liberpool's lone goal from the 2018 final against Madrid in Kiev. I believe Luiz Diaz's speed and creativity could pin Madrid's defense. The Colombian has made the Reds a different attack since his January move to England. Dylan gives Charlie some trivia involving Liverpool and Real Madrid former players. We both like Liverpool to win a game that should see plenty of goals. The last two Champions League finals both saw 1-0 games, and Saturday's final looks to showcase football's best attackers on one pitch.
