Soccer Odds: Champions League Final - Real Madrid vs Juventus

The two best soccer clubs in the world will meet this Saturday (2:45 PM ET, FOX) in the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final, live from the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. The defending champions from Real Madrid will face Juventus in a rematch of the 1998 final; Real are slim favorites in this matchup, priced at +150 on the moneyline with Juventus at +175 and the draw in regulation very much in play at +205.

Real Madrid are on top of the soccer world after taking down the Champions League in 2014 and 2016, and they come into Saturday’s final as La Liga champions, led by the incomparable four-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristian Ronaldo. Juventus, featuring Gianluigi Buffon in goal, finished first in Serie A for the sixth straight year. They’ve allowed just one goal in their last seven matches combined.

Scoring could be even more difficult for Real Madrid if reports on Gareth Bale’s health are accurate. Bale suffered a right ankle tendon injury in November and had to leave last month’s Clasico against Barcelona after tweaking his calf. The Welsh national is still expected to play in front of what should be a pro-Real crowd in Cardiff.
