On Saturday, May 28, the European football championship final between Liverpool and Real Madrid is set to take place at the Stade de France in Paris.
The Yellow Turtle, a sea life aquarium animal, has predicted that the Reds would defeat Los Blancos to win the Champions League this year.
The 30-year-old turtle wants to learn from other creative animals like Paul the octopus, who gained notoriety during the 2010 World Cup. Liverpool and Real Madrid will face off in the 2020–2021 UEFA Champions League final on Saturday night at Stade de France.
The 13-time Champions reached the final after defeating Manchester City 6-5 on aggregate, while the Reds went to the final by defeating Spanish team Villarreal 5-2 on aggregate in the semi-finals. After falling 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kyiv four seasons ago, Jurgen Klopp’s team will head into the championship game wanting retribution.
As speculation about who will win the next European championship heats up, predictions from experts, retired athletes, and fans are flooding in.
A Yellow Turtle from the Sea Life Aquarium in Benalmadena in the Spanish city of Malaga, however, is making a forecast that is gradually gaining favor among followers of both sides.
According to Marca, the team responsible for the Yellow Turtle’s particular care created two containers and placed one broccoli leaf inside of each of them two meters apart.
Yellow took a while to choose between the containers, though, which might be a sign that the competition will be fierce in the final.
Is Paul the Octopus being replaced by Yellow Turtle?
It looks like Yellow is being transformed into Paul the Octopus 2.0 by the Sea Life Aquarium’s marketing department in Benalmadena.
A well-known octopus named Paul the Octopus was employed to forecast the outcomes of international football games. It accurately predicted the results of eight World Cup matches in 2010, earning him international recognition as an animal oracle.
When Paul predicted the results of eight games during the 2010 World Cup, it garnered a lot of media attention.
