Backers of Crouchy’s Bet Builder for Liverpool v Wolves last weekend benefitted from our free bet if one leg lets you down offer as Crouchy correctly called Both Tema to Score, Over 3.5 goals and Pedro Neto to have a Shot on Target, but Luis Diaz couldn’t score to bring home the 10/1 punt.
Maybe he’ll have better luck on Saturday night as Liverpool aim to complete a treble of cup wins…

I have to fancy Liverpool to get it done on Saturday night.
Madrid have been underdogs in every round so far. The only word I can use it “madness” to describe what they’ve done to get here.
They’ve played PSG, followed by Chelsea, Man City and then Liverpool in the final – those are the best three teams in the Premier League and we call that the best in the world!
But they’re underdogs for a reason. It would be an amazing achievement to go and win but I just can’t see it. Liverpool are too good and should end their run of upsets in the 90 minutes.
The key for me is up top. When you look at the front three of Salah, Mane and Diaz, they’re too much to handle for the best sides and they can really cause problems for Madrid’s defence.
Obviously, Madrid have their own threats too. Karim Benzema’s been in great form this campaign and his contest with Virgil Van Dijk will be huge.
They’ve also so much experience. There are several members of the team going for their fifth Champions League win, which is just extraordinary.
That will give Madrid fans some hope, but Liverpool have plenty of it too. I can see there being a few goals shared between two top sides.
I spoke to Mo Salah after the Villarreal game though, and he said he wanted Real Madrid in the final to get revenge for 2018.
A player of his quality when he’s riled up can really make a difference. If I had to pick one Liverpool player to score on Saturday, it’d be him.
In finals, the big players come up trumps. Madrid will be counting on Benzema to be a killer when a chance arises.
He might be the obvious choice, but in a big game, that’s when the big players show up.
