The biggest game globally in club football takes place in the early hours of Sunday morning and could be one worth getting up (or staying up!) for.
The two Spanish giants of Madrid, Real and Atletico take their derby rivalry to the highest possible stage in their history as they clash in the Champions League Final in Lisbon.
Real have won the competition a record 9 times and according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au are $1.44 to make it ten having received 65% of the money wagered on the market.
Atletico, never to have won the competition and only once runner-ups, are priced at $2.66 to lift the trophy with 35% of the money going on them.
“Diego Simone’s Atletico are the new darlings of world football, having ended the Spanish monopoly of Barca and Real to win their first title in 18 years – if any outsider can get up this weekend…it’s them,” commented sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
