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 lethal attacks going head-to-head, it would be a shock if this were a low-scoring affair.
Ballon d’Or hopeful Karim Benzema has scored 20 goals over his last 15 appearances for Madrid, even scoring in a game when he subbed in at the 60th minute. On the other end of the pitch, Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz have been red hot for the Reds and are a major reason why the team has scored six goals over its last three matches leading up to the big showdown with Madrid.
One key in this matchup will be which side can lock things down in the second half. The sides combined for four goals in the second half in the 2018 UCL final, so it won’t be a surprise if both teams aim for second-half theatrics in the the UEFA Champions League Final 2022.
