Former professional footballer Micky Gray is predicting a goal-fest in the Champions League final in Paris on Saturday night.
The 47-year-old, who played for Sunderland, Celtic, Blackburn, Leeds, Wolves and Sheffield Wednesday during his 18-year playing career, told The Betfred Football Show he reckons it’ll be a “classic” European encounter that will see “juggernauts” Liverpool lift their 7th Champions League title.
Gray predicts a narrow 3-2 win for Jurgen Klopp’s men – a scoreline that is available at 20/1 at Betfred.
Although he warned of the danger Real Madrid – who have won their last seven Champions League finals including one against Liverpool in 2018 – possess through the likes of Benzema, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Modric.
Gray reckons Madrid’s freshness, having had the Spanish title wrapped up for weeks now, and experience, especially with veteran boss Carlo Ancelotti, makes it a very difficult game to predict, but is slightly favouring Liverpool to bring the ‘Big Ears’ trophy back to England.
We also heard from former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam, Gerry Armstrong and the guys at Redmen TV, who all gave their predictions for the big one on Saturday night – while Gray and Adam also discuss Sunderland’s promotion to the Championship and Sunday’s Million Pound Game – the Championship play-off final between Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town.
