    Cape Town - It will be a tight affair, but Real Madrid, inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo, will beat Liverpool and lift this season's Champions League title.

    So say leading South African bookmakers, BET.co.za.

    The Spanish giants and their English opponents will do battle at the Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex in Kiev on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 20:45.

    Madrid will be seeking a staggering all-time extending 13th Champions League title, while Liverpool will be chasing their sixth success.

    BET.co.za have installed Madrid as 23/20 favourites to win in regulation time, while Liverpool can be backed at 39/20 to get the job done in 90 minutes.

    The draw is on offer at 11/4.

    Predictably, both sides are loaded with the form players in this season's tournament.

    Ronaldo heads the goal scorers charts (15), but is following by a trio of Reds stars in Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino (10) and Sadio Mane (9).

    Among the 'top assists' leaders, James Milner (9) and Firmino (8) are way out in front.
