Top Champions League predictions for RB Leipzig vs. Liverpool
The model is leaning over 2.5 goals in Tuesday’s matchup between RB Leipzig and Liverpool. The Reds have struggled to score of late, registering only two goals in their last three matches – all losses. But they do possess the services of Mohamed Salah, who scored both of those tallies and tops Liverpool with 23 goals in 33 games. Meanwhile, the Reds have had problems keeping the ball out of the net, surrendering seven goals in their last two outings.
That figures to be a problem against RB Leipzig, which has produced nine goals over its last three contests. The team has had 16 different players score this season, with Yussuf Poulsen (nine) and Angelino (eight) leading the charge. These squads have had the same level of offensive potency in the UEFA Champions League, as RB Leipzig has scored 11 goals in six matches while Liverpool has recorded 10 in as many games, which is one of the reasons the model is leaning toward the over on Tuesday.
