Cristiano Ronaldo 14-1 for Kiev final hat-trick

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool are 13-10 to deny Real Madrid a third consecutive Champions League crown in Kiev on Saturday night but they will have to subdue Cristiano Ronaldo - no stranger to hat-tricks himself.

Real's star man is 14-1 to score three or more goals in a final that bookmakers expect to live up to the hype with both teams to score in 90 minutes no bigger than 4-9 and over 2.5 goals 1-2.

Ronaldo, the leading scorer in the Champions League with 15 goals this term, is 16-5 with Hills to score first and 7-2 to strike at least twice against a Liverpool defence who conceded six times in the two legs of their semi-final tie against Roma.

However, the Reds will believe they have the attacking personnel to upset the trophy favourites and Premier League Golden Boot winner Mohamed Salah is hugely respected by the layers.

The Egyptian sensation is 9-2 to score a brace in the final and 6-1 with Sky Bet to be named man of the match - just a point bigger than inevitable favourite Ronaldo. Gareth Bale is next in the betting at 7-1 for the individual award.

Real are 8-11 to lift the trophy and 13-10 to win in 90 minutes. Liverpool are 11-5 to triumph in normal time and Sky Bet go 7-1 that the final is decided on penalties.

The Kiev clash isn't Saturday's only big game as Fulham and Aston Villa meet in the Sky Bet Championship playoff final at Wembley tomorrow.

The Cottagers are 8-11 to win promotion to the Premier League with Villa 5-4 and bet365 think it could be tight, offering 9-2 that the final goes to penalties.

Tottenham are 8-11 with bet365 to finish above Arsenal in the top flight next season after Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino signed a new five-year contract at the club.

The firm are also betting on where Tottenham finish in next season's Premier League. They are 16-1 to win the title, 12-1 to be runners-up, 100-30 to end up third, 3-1 for a fourth-placed finish, and 10-11 to miss out on the top four.

Match in Focus


Girona v Valladolid

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Girona have failed to win their last five home La Liga matches
Expert verdict
Promoted Valladolid are back in the top flight – but minus their 33-goal top scorer, Jamie Mata, who has joined Getafe. The playoff winners’ second-top scorer last term – Michel, with five – is injured and it promises to be an awkward return to the big time for Sergio Gonzalez’s men at the Montilivi where Girona took points off Atletico and Real Madrid.
