The European team plays just 2 matches in this tournament nowadays and Real Madrid have already scraped through their first one. If we look at all 14 matches, not included the one played this year, the European teams have conceeded goals in only 3 of them. It still seems clear there is a big gulf in class between the European teams and the others in this and the -2 Asian Handicap looks an interesting bet as this has lost just twice in that time and that was in the finals in 2009 and 2016.

Real Madrid were poor in their opener and playe Gremio in the final who scraped through 1-0 after extra time.  Bet365 offer 1.82 on Real Madrid -1.5, 1.92 on Real Madrid -1.75 and 2.2 on Real Madrid -2 and all of these look to offer value.
