Betting Guide for Juventus v Barcelona
Placing a bet on the Champions League might seem like a confusing task, there are so many different bookmakers out there. Knowing the best one can be difficult as they all advertise themselves as the best!

Draw 3/1 - this means a £10 winning bet would return £40
Betting Markets for the Champions League Final 2015
Below I will go through the most popular betting markets.
Correct Score Betting
Betting on the correct score can make the match a lot more exciting, however it is quite tricky to get the exact correct score. Looking at previous form can be a good indicator on how many goals will be scored by either team.
Barcelona tend to score a lot of goals, but against poorer opposition in the Spanish League. In the Champions League Semi-finals they beat Bayern Munich 3-0 and 3-2. So again big scores, and I believe they will ge ta few goals in the final.
However, Juventus don't tend to let in a lot of goals and are very strong at defending.
I believe the correct score will be 2-1 to Barcelona. Current odds of a 2-1 Barcelona win are 15/2 with bet365.
If you believe the match will finish 0-0, it is better to bet on the no goal scorer market. This is because if an own goal is scored and that is the only goal, you will win the no goalscorer bet even though a goal has been scored. Usually no goal scorer is the same odds as 0-0, you will need to check first.
Of course, a 0-0 result might be not what you are looking for, however the bet365 Bore Draw Money Back refunds your stake Place a pre-match bet on ANY of our Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast markets for the Champions League Final, and if the game finishes 0-0, bet365 will refund your stake if the bet loses.
First Goal Scorer Betting
The First Goal Scorer Market is very orientated to the star players, you will see that the odds for Messi will be very low compared to other players. This is because Messi tends to score a lot of goals and most of them are first. However, Barcelona have three palyers that have a good chance of scoring first, Messi, Neymar and Suarez. For Juventus the palyer in form is Tevez
First Goal Scorer Odds
A good bet is the each way first goal scorer bet. Have an each-way First Goalscorer bet, and be safe in the knowledge that if your player scores at any time during the game bet365 will pay you out. Each-way bets are settled on all goalscorers at 1/3 odds for unlimited places in 90 minutes play.
My betting Tips for the Champions League Final 2015
I think that barcelona will attack, attack and attack. Juventus will defend reasonably well but won't be able to hold off the world's best player Messi.
I tip Messi to score first and Barcelona to win 2-1.
Over 2.5 goals.
Messi First goal scorer.
Messi anytime goal scorer.
Barcelona to win and both teams to score.
Barcelona to win.
Good luck and I hope the match matches up to expectations.
