    The world’s most prestigious club tournament final is around the corner, and it has led to many fans placing wagers and free bets on the outcome of the result. The two teams that made the final are both from the same City, they are Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Across the board from U.K to Australian bookmakers, Real are the favorites to win the competition as they are the record holders of winning it. They have the most expensive team assembled in history, and the pressure is on their players to deliver when it matters most.

    Real madrid have one of the strongest squads to choose from, and the players will be fighting it out to make the first team for the final. Below is the expected starting lineup for Real, barring any injuries before the final starts.

    Predicted Starting Lineup: Real Madrid

    Navas, Marcelo, Ramos, Pepe, Carvajal, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema

    Atletico does not have a squad packed with world-class stars. They rely on the team working as a unit, aggression, and hard work.That been said they do have a couple of players who can make a huge difference and could win the final for them. Griezmann is their star man, and they will be hoping that he can play at the top of his ability. If he can, they stand a great chance of winning the tournament.

    Predicted Starting Lineup: Atletico Madrid

    Oblak, Juanfran, Godín, Giménez, Filipe Luis; Saúl, Gabi, Fernández, Koke, Torres, Griezmann

    It will be the 61st time that the Champions League has taken place. Real Madrid, the most successful team in the history of the competition, are looking to win it for the 11th time. It is why fans are looking for the best free bet offers to put on them to win it again.

    Atletico is a different team since Diego Simeone was appointed the manager. He has proved that he is one of the best and made the team from Madrid into one of the world`s best. This season they were unlucky not to win La Liga as they only finished three points behind winners Barcelona.

    Atletico has never won the Champions League. They have made it to the final three times, each time coming up short. The first time they reached it was back in 1974 against Bayern Munich where the ended up losing 4 – 0. The second time they made it all the way to the last match was a couple of seasons back in 2013 against Real Madrid. They drew 1 – 1 in regular time but ended up losing the game in extra time 4 – 1. They will be looking to put the record straight this time around.

    If Diego Simeone can bring the cup back to Madrid for Atletico, he will book his place as the best manager the team has ever had. He is in high demand, and many punters have looked for the best free bet offers of him leaving this summer. The manager seems happy in Spain though, and the transfer is unlikely to happen.

    • I say Real Madrid takes it. Will be too tough to win by 2 goals so I say 1-0 for Real.
