England 20-1 for World Cup after qualifying

England qualified for the World Cup finals with a 1-0 win over Slovenia at Wembley thanks to Harry Kane's injury-time goal.

The captain came to the rescue of those punters who backed England at 1-3 in what was a poor performance from Gareth Southgate's side. The Three Lions are generally available at 20-1 to win the World Cup.

Kane, not for the first time, was England's saviour and bet365 rate the Tottenham hotshot 11-10 favourite to top-score for Southgate's men in next summer's finals. Dele Alli and Marcus Rashford are 6-1 shots, while it's 25-1 that no England player notches.

Scotland kept their qualification hopes alive with a dramatic 1-0 triumph over ten-man Slovakia with Chris Martin the Tartan Army hero, and Gordon Strachan's men will finish second in Group F should they beat Slovenia away on Sunday.

Holders Germany beat Northern Ireland 3-1 at Windsor Park.

Real Madrid v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Real have won just one of their last four Champions League meetings against English opposition
Expert verdict
Real Madrid have lifted the Champions League in three of the past four seasons but they could struggle to retain their crown against a lively Liverpool. Real have been the dominant force in Europe, with last year’s 4-1 thumping of Juventus in the final in Cardiff showcasing their superiority. However, Zinedine Zidane’s men have not bumped into a front three like the Reds’ often - Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have netted 29 of their 40 Champions League goals this season - and they are vulnerable to the counter-attack.
