Champions League Final: Suarez To See Red?

Barcelona are 4/11 to lift the Champions League on Saturday and 8/13 to do so in normal time according to bookmakers William Hill.


Messi will no doubt be instrumental should Barca lift the trophy and he is 2/1 to outscore Juventus over 90 minutes and 3/1 favourite to win man of the match ahead of Suarez at 7/1 and Neymar at 8/1.


This is also a match that sees Luis Suarez come up against Giorgio Chiellini for the first time since the World Cup group stage that saw Suarez bite the Italian defender and it is 25/1 that the Uruguayan is sent off during the match.


Paul Pogba has been in scintillating form for Juventus this season and William Hill make him 6/1 to join his side’s opponents during the summer transfer window and his teammate, Carlos Tevez, is 11/2 to leave the Old Lady this close season.
