    Cape Town - We chatted to BET.co.za brand ambassador Jimmy Tau about his thoughts ahead of the Liverpool v Real Madrid Champions League final on Saturday.

    Tau called this one incredibly tough to predict with the impressive form of Liverpool up against the Champions League pedigree of Madrid.

    "Liverpool have played well and deservedly take their place in the final. It's their first final in ages and this could be important against Real looking to defend their title."

    Local rivalries were at play in making his final prediction for the match with Tau being a massive Barcelona fan.

    "I'm trying not to be biased!" he laughed.

    "Even though it pains me to say it, I think that Real's experience will see them win this one."

    Tau did stress that he didn't want to call Liverpool the underdogs in this game and that their fantastic play this season is dangerous for any side.

    When pressed for a score, Tau tipped Real Madrid to win 2-0 with Karima Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo getting the goals.

    "I don't see this one going to extra-time. I fancy Benzema to get the first goal and Ronaldo to put the game to bed."

    BET.co.za has taken Jimmy Tau's predictions and boosted the price on some of the markets. So if you reckon Jimmy’s got it spot on, you can get involved here.
