9:10 – Liverpool and Real Madrid are set to wrap up a very entertaining Champions League season tonight. Will the Madrilenians win the title for the fourteenth time or will Liverpool retaliate after losing four years ago? Along with Jack’s Casino, FCUpdate.nl will likely take a look at the players who need to do it for both clubs.
The first name in this list should come as no surprise. Karim Benzema is the top scorer in the Champions League with fifteen goals that are as beautiful as they are important. The Frenchman has not scored in just two games, while tackling two hat-tricks. There seems to be no doubt that the 34-year-old super-forward will once again play a leading role against Liverpool. A goal from Benzema is worth 2.38 times your stake at Jack’s Casino. It’s 9.50 for two or more hits and even 41.00 for a new hat-trick!
Virgil van Dijk
The man who has to stop the goalscorer is of course Virgil van Dijk. If he succeeds, the Orange captain can win his second Champions League title with Liverpool! He and his teammates still have something to do right against Real Madrid after losing the 2018 final. But it is clear that it will not be easy. Do Van Dijk and his colleagues like the Madrilenians scoring? Then that’s good for 3.35 times your investment!
Real Madrid don’t just have the Champions League top scorer. Benzema’s attacking partner Vinicius Junior is the player with the most assists in the tournament. He gave seven, but even more striking: six of them were on Benzema! If there’s a duo that can decide the game for Real, it’s the Frenchman and the Brazilian. Will Real score three goals or more under their leadership? Bet and win no less than 6.75x your stake!
2022 is a record year for Sadio Mane. Not only has he won the League Cup and FA Cup with Liverpool, but the star has guided his Senegal to the World Cup and overall African Cup of Nations. Both, by the way, at the expense of Mohamed Salah’s Egypt. Will Mané also add the Champions League to his bulging trophy cabinet in Paris? Then that’s good for odds of 1.55!
He’s 36 years old now but that hasn’t stopped Luka Modric from showing off again this season in the Champions League. He gave four assists, the best of which was definitely the beautiful right-wing ball on Rodrygo against Chelsea. Modric has won the Champions League four times with Real Madrid. Does he add a fifth to that? Then you can get up to 2.50x your stake!
Of course, the player who cannot be missing from this list is Mohamed Salah. He remains Liverpool’s top scorer in the Champions League with eight goals, although it should be noted that he only scored one in the knockout stages. That was also in the very first knockout game, out at Inter. Time for another important goal by the Egyptian! The odds of 2.40 for a goal in the final.
