Take on the Professor’s Champions League quiz with Ladbrokes


Real Madrid head into Saturday’s Champions League final in Lisbon as favourites for victory with Ladbrokes backing Los Blancos at 9/20 to lift the trophy, while Atletico Madrid are 17/10 outsiders for the cup.

And after witnessing Arsenal complete a sensational comeback against Hull in last weekend’s FA Cup final, we are hoping for another classic encounter between the cross-town rivals when they take to the pitch in Lisbon.

Ahead of this potentially absorbing encounter the Ladbrokes News Team has been busy creating the ultimate Champions League quiz (from 1993 onwards) – how much of a professor are you?

Round One: It’s all about the players
