Champions League Final

Borussia Dortmund v Real Madrid betting tips and predictions

Under 2.5 goals - 11/10

The last five Champions League finals have produced just six goals, the last four each yielding 1-0 scorelines, and it may pay to bet on a tight affair without too many goals at Wembley.

Neutrals would love to see Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid turn on the style in London and deliver a final to remember with goals galore.

And there is no doubt that both clubs have the attacking players who could do just that.

But it's Dortmund's teak-tough defence which has helped them to defy the odds to get this far and back them to make it a frustrating night for Carlo Ancelotti's giants.

Whether Dortmund can pip mighty Real is one thing and there will be many who believe Edin Terzic's men are a decent 90-minute price of 4/1. But it's definitely worth believing they've got another defensive masterclass in them to keep Real at bay and the goal tally down.

The last six Champions League finals have copped for under 2.5 goals backers. Take the 11/10 that it pays off again.

German internationals Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck are part of a Dortmund defence which has kept six clean sheets in 12 Champions League matches, including shutting out Paris Saint-Germain in both legs of their semi-final.

Nine of their 12 ties have produced two goals or less so don't be surprised if that reads 10 of 13 by the end of Saturday night.

Marcel Sabitzer Over 0.5 Shots on Target - 5/4

Only striker Donyell Malen has fired off more shots for Dortmund this season than Marcel Sabitzer, who is enjoying a superb campaign.

The Austrian has set up more goals than any other player in the tournament - five assists - but will get shots off himself.

He has managed seven shots on target throughout his side's European campaign and is averaging 1.9 shots per game in the Bundesliga.

Real Madrid are going to be sterner opponents than the likes of Augsburg or Darmstadt but 5/4 that he hits the target at least once is a decent enough proposition.

Dortmund Over 3.5 Corners - 8/13

Real Madrid won't naturally dominate this match and Dortmund, of all teams, should at least have working knowledge of how to put the lid on their old boy, Jude Bellingham.

There is class in attack in Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior but the Germans, a superbly coached unit, will frustrate Real at source.

That all helps to play to the low goals prediction while Real also may not pile up the corners, either. Neither might Dortmund but you would envisage they will have little difficulty acquiring four.

Real have conceded four or more in five of their six knockout ties - including 14 in the 90 minutes before extra time of their game at Manchester City - and Dortmund have won at least four in all six of their post-group stage assignments.

The 8/13 they win over 3.5 corners in over/under betting looks a steal.
