The Champions League Final RequestABets

Goal: Kevin De Bruyne, Offside: Timo Werner, Assist: Riyad Mahrez, Tackle: Jorginho

Our tip main tip for the Champions League final is a 16/1 shot for the G.O.A.T market. Here, we need Kevin De Bruyne to score, Riyad Mahrez to get an assist, Timo Werner to be offside at least once, and Jorginho to make at least one tackle to win.

As well as being one of Manchester City’s main set-piece taker, De Bruyne also has a clinical eye for goal, as seen with his wonderful finish which opened the scoring in their win over Everton last weekend, a goal which also saw him reach double figures for the season once again. Despite making a reputation for cutting inside on his lethal left-foot, Riyad Mahrez has also shown off his playmaking abilities of late, assisting a goal in both of his side’s final two games of the league season, taking his tally to nine this campaign.

Timo Werner’s pace in behind defences can be a major threat, but playing on the shoulder looking to dart beyond the last defender often leads to Werner being flagged offside, 37 times to be exact in the league and Europe this season - a dreadful statistic. Now, as Chelsea don't expect to have much of the ball, counter-attacking with Werner may be their gameplan, and this means at least one offside is likely.

Having a combative midfielder like Jorginho in the side who is not afraid to leave his foot in always increases the chances of fouls and bookings, but also successful tackles too. With N’Golo Kante a doubt, the Italian may have to take the reins and battle in the middle for Chelsea.

GOAL: KEVIN DE BRUYNE, OFFSIDE: TIMO WERNER, ASSIST: RIYAD MAHREZ, TACKLE: JORGINHO @ 16/1

Over 0.5 goals in the 1st half and 5+ 1st half corners

Many of the recent Champions League finals have been very cagey affairs, including the last three, where one mistake or a penalty has ultimately decided the winner. In the last nine finals in the competition, there have been only six goals scored in the first half and when Manchester City and Chelsea met in the FA Cup semi-final last month, it was goalless at half time.

The two sides both prefer a patient possession style of football and this could lead to a bit of a deadlock in the opening stages. A goalless first half with under five corners is priced at 3/1, and based of recent Champions League finals and Chelsea and City's meeting at Wembley, this is a likely outcome.

OVER 0.5 GOALS IN THE 1ST HALF AND 5+ 1ST HALF CORNERS @ 2/1

A goal in each half and 5+ corners in each half

However, when you have attacking talents like Kevin De Bruyne, Mason Mount, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden potentially all on the pitch, chances will surely be created. Both head-to-heads in the Premier League saw a goal scored in both halves and it has happened in six of City’s last seven games across all competitions.

A goal early on in the game may well change the dynamic and make it a much more open tie leading to the possibility of more corners. The last all-English final in 2019 between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur saw a goal early on and that match saw 17 corners and a goal and five corners in each half in the final is 7/1 here.

A GOAL IN EACH HALF AND 5+ CORNERS IN EACH HALF @ 7/1

Man City to win, BTTS-No and 5 corners each in the match

Pep Guardiola’s side are certainly more fancied to take a maiden Champions League crown in Porto this weekend and become the 23rd different club to win the competition. Having just celebrated their title success with a ruthless 5-0 win over Everton, City could not have made better preparation with De Bruyne, Foden and of course, Sergio Aguero, all starring.

The embarrassment of riches at Guardiola’s disposal means he has a real selection headache, but one certainty is that Ruben Dias will start in defence, and City do not concede many when he is starting at the back. Chelsea also do not score many regardless of who is in the squad. They were the first team since the 2010/11 season to finish in the top four without having a player who reached double figures for goals, with penalty-taker Jorginho their top scorer with seven league goals.

A win for Manchester City, both teams not to score and five corners for each team in the match is a promising looking RAB for the final, priced at 11/1 with Sky Bet.

MANCHESTER CITY TO WIN, BTTS - NO & 5+ CORNERS EACH TEAM @ 11/1

Chelsea to win, BTTS, 4+ corners each and 20+ booking points each

Despite sitting as outsiders at odds of 7/2, Chelsea cannot be written off, especially after two wins over their upcoming opponents in the last month. They may have limped over the line to secure a top four spot, but recent performances against City and Real Madrid show that the Blues are up for the big occasions under new manager Thomas Tuchel, and they have the quality in the squad to punish Guardiola's men if they can continue with their solid defensive form.

The three matches between the sides this season have produced both teams to score twice, 11 yellow cards and 25 corners, so this huge 50/1 RAB which includes a Chelsea win, both teams to score, 4 or more corners each and 20+ booking points each, is a RequestABet to consider if you fancy a Chelsea win in Portugal this weekend.
