888sport has a great welcome offer for new customers giving treble odds on their first bet placed, which is ideal for this Saturday’s Champions League final between Juventus and Barcelona.
Juventus booked their spot at the Olympiastadion in Berlin with an enthralling 3-2 aggregate win over defending champions Real Madrid in their semi-final and will look to continue in that vein on Saturday against Madrid’s El Classico rivals Barcelona. Appearing in their eighth final, two-time winners Juventus will look to add the Champions League to the Serie A and Coppa Italia titles they have picked up already this season and complete their first ever treble-winning campaign.
Coincidentally, four-time winners Barca are looking to celebrate their eighth appearance in a Champions League final with a third trophy as well, but the Spanish side have the added incentive of becoming the European first side to complete two trebles - after winning La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League back in 2008/09. If that wasn’t enough, they will take great confidence from obliterating 2013 winners Bayern Munich in the previous round, thanks to a 5-3 aggregate semi-final win over the German side managed by former boss Pep Guardiola.
The two sides have been drawn together in Champions League ties twice before, with one win each. Barcelona ended Juventus’ European Cup defence in the 1985/86 quarter-finals, while Juve got their revenge with an extra-time winner at the Nou Camp at the same stage of the 2002/03 tournament.
This will be the third time Barcelona have met an Italian side in a Champions League final - as they saw off Sampdoria after extra-time in 1991/92 for their first title, before a 0-4 capitulation against AC Milan followed two seasons later. Meanwhile, Juventus’ one previous meeting against a Spanish side at this stage saw them lose 0-1 to Real Madrid in 1997/98.
Juventus to win is 51/10 on 888sport, but the bookmaker is enhancing those odds to 15/1 with treble odds. A Barcelona win in Berlin is boosted to 9/5 from the normal odds of 3/5, while the draw at 90 minutes will pay better at 9/1 when the price is tripled.
Open an account with 888sport and you will get treble odds on your first bet, up to £10 maximum stake.
You’d be crazy to let the offer pass if you don’t have an account with 888sport and the great thing about this treble odds offer is that all the winnings will be paid in cash, which means it can be withdrawn straight away and there is no obligation to make another bet with the extra winnings like some other enhanced odds offers.
The offer applies to any sport and 888sport has an extensive choice with thousands of markets on over 20 different sports. However, it’s the Champions League final that will create most interest this weekend - as both Juventus and Barcelona look to lift the Champions League trophy once again and complete a historic treble.
