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 to be scored for a -130 payout. In an era of football often defined by a team’s willingness to go forward and finishing quality, these two clubs feature two of the most fun-to-watch attacking groups.
Liverpool is tied with Manchester City for the most goals in the English Premier League this season (89) and has also come up with 28 goals in 12 UCL matches while playing against the best clubs on the continent. Real Madrid’s 73 goals were the most in Spanish La Liga, while it has scored 27 goals in its 12 UCL matches.
With Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi leaving La Liga in recent years, Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema has staked his claim as the top striker in Spain. He has made a compelling argument that he’s the most adept scorer in the world with 26 goals in 30 league matches and a staggering 15 in 11 UCL matches this season.
Meanwhile, Mohamed Saleh has also made a strong Ballon d’Or case with 22 goals and 13 assists in the EPL and eight goals with two assists in the Champions League. Expect these two dynamic attacking presences to drive forward all night and for another high-scoring affair after the two clubs combined for four second-half goals in the 2018 UCL final.
