Soccer Selections: Take Liverpool, RB Leipzig to win by multiple goals

Liverpool and RB Leipzig have two of the best in-form attacks in Europe at the moment.

Both sides take on significantly weaker opposition that are out of form over the weekend.

Liverpool goes up against a Brighton squad that is in some of the worst form in the Premier League, while RB Leipzig faces the worst team in the Bundesliga with a stunning defensive record when it concedes three or more goals.

The two stark differences in form stick out among the games on the European slate this weekend.

Overall Record: 120-128

Premier League: Brighton vs. Liverpool (-1.5) (Saturday, 7:30 a.m. ET, Peacock)

Brighton and Liverpool are on opposite ends of the Premier League form table.

Brighton is on a four-game losing streak in which it conceded multiple goals in every contest.

Liverpool just advanced to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals with a two-leg win over Inter and it has not lost a league match since December 28.

Jurgen Klopp's side allowed a single goal in its last five matches away from Anfield.

Liverpool's money-line number is too high here, so I'm going with the spread bet in anticipation of it taking advantage of Brighton's poor form.

Bundesliga: Hoffenheim vs. Bayern Munich (-180) (Saturday, 9:30 a.m. ET)

Any time I can get Bayern Munich under -200 as a Bundesliga favorite, I will take it.

Bayern hit the get-right button with a 7-1 thrashing of RB Salzburg in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

I expect Bayern to keep rolling in the final third against a Hoffenheim team that it beat 4-0 earlier in the season.

Bundesliga: Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Hertha Berlin (Over 3.5) (Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET)

Borussia Monchengladbach and Hertha Berlin have two of the three worst defensive records in the Bundesliga.

Hertha Berlin conceded three or more goals in each of its last three Bundesliga matches.

Gladbach's last four league matches featured a total of 20 goals.

Bundesliga: Greuther Furth vs. RB Leipzig (-1.5) (Sunday, 2:30 p.m. ET)

Greuther Furth conceded four or more goals on seven occasions this season.

RB Leipzig put four goals past the last-placed team in the Bundesliga on October 23.

RB Leipzig is cruising at the moment with a top-four spot in sight.

Look for Christopher Nkunku, Andre Silva and the rest of the Leipzig attack to take advantage of the Furth defense that lost by multiple goals in all 11 matches in which it conceded three or more tallies.

La Liga: Rayo Vallecano vs. Sevilla (+140) (Sunday, 9 a.m. ET)

Rayo Vallecano is 0-6-1 in its last seven league games.

Rayo is tanking down the La Liga table, while Sevilla still has an outside chance of winning the La Liga title.

Sevilla can't afford to drop any points on the road at Vallecas and it should take advantage of Rayo's poor form over the last month.

La Liga: Real Sociedad vs. Alaves (Under 2.5) (Sunday, 1:30 p.m. ET)

Real Sociedad scored more than one goal at home in La Liga play once this season.

La Real scored 10 goals and allowed six in 13 home matches in league action.

Alaves has the sixth-worst expected goals against on the road and Real Sociedad has the fifth-best xGA on home soil.

Serie A: Salernitana vs. Sassuolo (-125) (Saturday, 9 a.m. ET)

Sassuolo has found a nice vein of form over the last few weeks.

Sassuolo is on a three-game winning streak with eight goals scored during that run.

Salernitana has a seven-game winless run that dates back to January 9 and it fell to Sassuolo in their first meeting back in September.
