Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah hasn’t forgotten what happened the last time his team faced off against Real Madrid, and he will have a chance at redemption when the two sides meet again in the 2022 UEFA Champions League Final on Saturday. The Egyptian star was injured 30 minutes into the 2018 Champions League Final, in which Madrid defeated the Premier League club 3-1. Salah has called the game-ending injury the worst moment of his career, so he will be motivated by revenge when he faces Los Blancos again. You can see what happens next when you stream the match on Paramount+.

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 offenses facing off, the 2022 Champions League Final promises to be a high-scoring affair. Ballon d’Or contender Karim Benzema scored 20 goals in 15 straight appearances for Madrid and will be hungry to find the back of the net after his side was held scoreless in its La Liga finale against Real Betis. With how well Los Blancos have fared in Champions League play, expect them to right the ship and get on the scoreboard.
Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz have traded off being heroes for the Reds in league play. The leadership corps includes Salah, who scored along with Mane in Liverpool’s Premier League finale against Wolverhampton.
“Jurgen Klopp’s men are extremely efficient in the attacking third, as Liverpool has three players who’ve scored at least five goals in the Champions League this season,” Sutton told SportsLine. “Plus, Liverpool has scored two or more goals in four straight Champions League fixtures, one of the main reasons I’m backing the over.”
