This means that, if the betting numbers continue like this, the online gambling firms could be on the hook for a very big payout if Liverpool manages to win the Champions League title in regular time.

Real Madrid, on the other hand, is reportedly just garnering 36% of all wagers to win the contest straight up. Despite their dominance over the past four years, many gamblers feel as though this might be Liverpool's year, given the side's destruction of teams such as Manchester City.

A trend to watch out for - as the game starts to draw closer, don't be surprised if Real Madrid sees a surge of money in the lead-up to the game. If a gambler is undecided, this will tend to side with the "favourite", which, in this case, is Real Madrid.
