Coral’s Real deal to first time customers
Coral are offering new customers an enticing offer for Real Madrid to win the Champions League, with any bets staked up to €/£10 paid out straight away at 3/1.
Having led Real to the Champions League final in his first season in charge, Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping to go one better and win it. If he does, he will complete a hat-trick of victories in the competition; the Italian having claimed it twice with AC Milan, so he certainly doesn’t need an extra incentive.
Los Blancos are boosted by the fact that star striker Diego Costa is out for their bitter rivals Atletico Madrid, and also boast a near-to-full strength side themselves, with the boss confirming that Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale will feature.
Atleti only recently played out a gruelling 1-1 draw with Barcelona for the La Liga title, and doubts have been made as to whether they can sustain what will be another physical and fast-paced 90 minutes, at least, in the final.
Although Simeone’s side have one of the best defences in Europe this season, Real’s semi final opposition Bayern Munich could say the same, though were undone by the pace of Ronaldo and Bale, as well as the speed of the Spanish team’s counter attack.
Held in Lisbon, it was almost in the script from the beginning that Ancelotti’s outfit would win the Champions League, in the city that their star player Ronaldo has such a close affinity with. He started his career at Sporting Lisbon, and has since won Europe’s biggest prize with Manchester United. No one will want this more than him, proved even further by the fact that he is the top scorer in the competition this season with 16 goals.
Gareth Bale will also want to show Spurs fans that he made the right decision leaving London last summer, and a Champions League winners medal would put doubters right.
