The 2022 Final was played at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, France, on 28 May 2022, contested between Liverpool and Real Madrid, this was the third time they had met in a European Final after 1981 and 2018.
Real Madrid beat Liverpool 1–0 in that game to win their 14th Champions League title with a record-extending total. The sole goal in last year’s final came courtesy of a Vinicus Jr. slotting the ball to the net from a Federico Valverde cross.
Jurgen Klopp famously urged Liverpool fans to ‘book the hotel!’ in Istanbul for the 2023 Champions League Final after his Liverpool team lost the 2022 final of the competition to Real Madrid. Despite Klopp’s confidence, Liverpool will not be making an appearance in Istanbul for the final of this year’s Champions League as they were knocked out of Europe’s premier club competition in the round of 16 stage by foes Real Madrid.

The winner on aggregate for Real Madrid v Manchester City on the 9th of May and Manchester City v Real Madrid on the 17th of May will decide one finalist. The other finalist will be the winner on aggregate in the Derby della Madonnina AC Milan v Inter Milan on the 10th of May and Inter Milan v AC Milan on the 16th of May.
Champions League Odds 2023
The odds-on favourite to win the 2023 Champions League is Man City at odds of 4/6. Pep Guardiola’s Man City side have come so close in this competition before but have never been able to get their hands on the title. They could complete a historic treble if they win in Istanbul this June.
Second favourite in the betting for this year’s Champions League is Real Madrid. The Spanish giants are 10/3 in the betting to defend their title and if they can get past Man City in the semi-final they will almost certainly go into the final as odds-on favourites.
Next in the betting is Inter Milan at odds of 13/2 to win this year’s Champions League. Inter are bidding to win their first Champions League title since 2010.
The least likely champions of Europe according to the latest betting odds is AC Milan who come in at odds of 15/2 to beat Inter Milan and then either Man City or Real Madrid and lift the trophy in Istanbul.
