Real Madrid Wins La Liga & Now Eyes Champions League
May 23, 2017
Real Madrid wins La Liga 2017. This is due to the team’s overall performance throughout this season. Now, Real is preparing to do the same in the Champions League where it will play against an equally hungry team, Juventus. Bitcoin sportsbook odds are giving Real Madrid slightly better odds to win the finals, though.
La Liga title
Spain’s own team has been performing quite well throughout the season. Even without some of its top players, there are many in Real who can contribute to the team. So much that if Ronaldo or Benzema was not available in Sunday’s match, there are Morata and Isco who can pick up the slack.
On Sunday’s match, Ronaldo took the goal thanks to Isco and Kameni’s assistance. It was also thanks to Kameni’s defense against Ramos’ attack that led to Benzema’s goal in the match.
Real Madrid was almost a shoe-in thanks to its performance this season. It only needed a single point in order to beat Barcelona’s standing. The season ended with Real Madrid having 93 points while Barcelona has 90.
Zinedine Zidane, coach of Real Madrid, said:
“It was very important [to win the league]. It was a lot of years without winning it and we knew that the league is everything. For Real Madrid, because it is the best club in the world, we have to return with this league title. He [Ronaldo] is always there to make the difference and I am happy for him – it is a little different because he is always there to do it. It has been a difficult season that we worked hard for, with some tough moments, but after 38 games we are top and that is it. The Spanish league is the best in my opinion and to win it in this way is incredible – I am very happy.”
With La Liga well behind Real Madrid, the team has the Champions League to look forward to. It will defend its title against Juventus in June.
William Hill has Juventus at 2.87 odds and Real Madrid at 2.50. Anonibet sets Juventus at 2.95 while Real is at 2.60. Both Bitcoin sportsbooks favor the Spanish team for this match. However, both teams look to be an even match.
Bookies could be drawing the odds from the team’s previous match. Real is no stranger to defending its title in the Champions league. The team won two of its finals matches before.
Juventus, on the other hand, experienced four loses in the Champions League finals out of the eight finals matches. One of which was against Real Madrid while the most recent loss was with Barcelona just two seasons ago.
History could repeat itself again thanks to Real Madrid’s well-rounded team of quality players. On the other hand, Juventus can answer Real’s performance with its flexible defensive play. This might just be Juventus first win since 1996.
