UEFA Europa League picks for Real Madrid vs. Liverpool
Before you tune in to the match, you need to see the Champions League final picks from soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for nearly five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
Sutton has also been on a roll with his best bets, going 81-61 in his last 142 soccer picks, returning over $2,500 for $100 bettors.
For Real Madrid vs. Liverpool, Sutton is backing over 2.5 goals scored for a -140 payout. With two of Europe's most potent offenses going head to head, this match promises to be an exciting and high-scoring affair. Fans of both teams will be particularly eager to see Ballon d'Or contenders Mohamed Salah and Karim Benzema on the pitch. Benzema scored 20 goals in 15 games for Madrid, including in a match he didn't enter until the 60-minute mark. Salah, looking to avenge his injury-halted performance in the 2018 Final, led the Premier League with 23 goals this season, including a tally in last weekend's league finale against Wolverhampton.
The expert believes Liverpool has the edge, though, when it comes to offensive weapons. That's due to Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz being such a driving force for the English side's scoring both in league play as well as in the Champions League. When combined with Salah, the trio has scored 15 goals in 12 Champions League matches. Liverpool has three players with at least five goals scored in Champions League play, including Mane and Salah, and has scored two or more goals in four straight Champions League games.
