REAL MADRID have to rule in Europe with Barcelona reigning in Spain.
Barca clinched the title on Sunday to complete a league and cup double and are still unbeaten in La Liga.
So for Real winning the Champions League will be a great consolation prize.
Zinedine Zidane's men are massive favourites at 2-7 with Sky Bet to reach the Final tonight after winning 2-1 away to Bayern Munich. The Germans are 3-1 at Betfred to turn it around.
They should complete the job but last season were forced to extra time in a similar position and in the quarters almost blew a 3-0 lead against Juventus before Cristiano Ronaldo's injury-time penalty put them through.
I believe Zidane will have learned a lesson from the Juve game and don't expect them to be as passive. He rested 10 players at the weekend in the win against Leganes and is taking no chances.
He will be without Isco and Dani Carvajal but Bayern crucially miss three key men in Arturo Vidal, Jerome Boateng and Arjen Robben and their absence could be too much to overcome.
I'm taking Real to win at a best 23-20 with McBookie and consider Ronaldo, whose run of 11 consecutive CL games with a goal was ended in Munich, to score at 13-16 with Unibet.
Bayern are a best 23-10 at Marathonbet to win in the Bernabeu while the draw pays 16-5 at betfair.
The German, whose best hope of a goal could come from Robert Lewandowski, aren't likely to sit back and that should lead to goals but both to score and overs pays just 4-7 at Sky Bet.
- Real Madrid to win
- Ronaldo to score
- Both to score & over 2.5 goals
