Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid best bet: Under 2.5 goals (+112)

Real Madrid got the better of RB Leipzig, Manchester City and Bayern Munich in the knockout stages while Borussia Dortmund saw off PSV, Atletico Madrid and PSG. Carlo Ancelotti’s team is unbeaten in 90 minutes in their last 47 games, demonstrating the enormity of the challenge Dortmund face. However, the skinny odds for a Real Madrid success in 90 minutes don’t make much appeal and playing in the goals market could be a safer bet.

Champions League finals tend to be cagey affairs — the last 5 and 11 of the last 16 have gone under 2.5 goals — and yet a repeat of that is available at plus-money odds. Real conceded just 35 goals in 43 La Liga and Champions League games and kept 21 clean sheets along the way. Under 2.5 goals also landed in 9 of Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League games this season.
