Betting: Manchester United 9/1 To Beat Barcelona On Penalties

The bookmakers at Bet365 can’t decide which Champions League finalist has the better chance of victory, could the game go to spot-kicks again?

The English and Spanish champions clash swords on Wednesday night, but which team will land the Champions League? Although Barcelona have played some devastating football this season, they were nearly eliminated by Chelsea in the semi-final and are 13/8 with bet365 to win the match in ninety minutes. Will the likes of Lionel Messi and Samuel Eto’o manage to trouble the Red Devils defence? The former is 13/2 to open the scoring, with bet365 making the Cameroonian the same price.

Manchester United are also 13/8 at the time of writing, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s team having the advantage of reaching and winning the final last term. Will you be backing them for a repeat triumph, or will the holders fall short at the final hurdle? Many people have already backed Cristiano Ronaldo to open the scoring, with bet365 offering 6/1 that he repeats the first goal that was bagged in Moscow. Wayne Rooney is 13/2 to get his team off to the best possible start.

Bet365 have a massive range of betting markets available for the Champions League final. You can pretty much bet on any aspect of the match, whether it’s correct score, total number of goals scored or even if the match goes to penalties. The possibility of spot kicks has to be a strong one, with no quarter given by either team during the game. It’s tempting to back Manchester United to win on penalties, with bet365 pricing this at 9/1.
