The 2015 UEFA Champions League final sees Juventus face off against Barcelona on Saturday 6th June, so find out how the football betting offers at William Hill can benefit your Juventus v Barcelona bets.
Juve booked their place in Saturday’s final at the Olympiastadion with an impressive 3-2 aggregate semi-final win over Barcelona’s great rivals - and defending champions - Real Madrid, denying the world of the mouth-watering prospect of an El Classico Champions League final.
Having already clinched the Serie A and Coppa Italia so far this season, the Italians will look to complete a historic treble on Saturday by beating Barca in Berlin, in what is their first Champions League final appearance in 12 years.
However, a second treble is also on for Luis Enrique’s men - after they followed up their La Liga triumph with a Copa del Rey final win over Athletic Bilbao last weekend.
Barcelona have been in blistering form since the start of 2015 and will take added confidence from the fact that they obliterated 2013 Champions League winners Bayern Munich - managed by former Barca boss Pep Guardiola - 5-3 on aggregate in their Champions League semi-final meeting last month.
With both sides looking to cap off a fantastic season with a third trophy, this 2015 UEFA Champions League final could go down to the wire and both Juventus and Barcelona will fancy their chances of winning.
Saturday's match will be shown live on ITV 1 and Sky Sports 1 at 19.45 and is sure to be eagerly watched by both casual and professional gamblers, who will all be looking to make a profit on what should be an exciting encounter. One way in which you can increase your chances of winning long term is to take advantage of William Hill’s free bet offers, to add a level of protection to your Juventus v Barcelona bets.
Bore Draw Insurance
With two-time Champions League winners Juventus keeping five clean sheets during their nine-game unbeaten run in this season’s competition and Barcelona - who also went nine games with defeat before their semi-final second leg defeat - boasting one of the most-feared attacking lines in world football, this game could ultimately come down to who wins the contest between Juve’s defence and Barca’s attack.
Should both sides struggle to break down the other and a bore-draw ensure after 90 minutes, sending the match into extra time, William Hill have you covered. If the 2015 UEFA Champions League final does finish 0-0 and ruin your bet, William Hill will refund all losing Correct Score and Double Result (HT/FT) bets on the match as a Free Bet - equal to up to a maximum £50 of your stake.
Goalscorer Second Chance
Juventus' top scorer Carlos Tevez has a solid claim to be a potential First Goalscorer - as the Argentinian has been in the form of his life this season, with seven Champions League goals and 50 goals in all competitions.
Should their leading dangerman not be able to produce the goods, Juve will surely look to capable deputies Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba to step up and produce the goals they need to see off the Spanish champions.
Meanwhile, the sheer mention of Lionel Messi’s name - along with his 10 Champions League goals this season - makes him an obvious candidate in the First Goalscorer market for Barcelona, especially with the forward looking to make history by becoming the first player to find the net in three Champions League finals.
However, should Messi strike a blank in Berlin, Barca will be confident that plenty of others can produce in his place - as his fellow deadly marksmen Neymar and Luis Suarez will surely be desperate to add to the nine and six goals they’ve scored in the competition this season respectively and help Barca to a fifth Champions League title.
Whoever you decide to plump for in the First Goalscorer market, use William Hill for the added protection of a free bet refund. Should your losing selection then go on to score the second goal of the game, you would receive a free bet refund of up to £50 thanks to WIlliam Hill’s Goalscorer Second Chance.
