Derby v Liverpool Betting Tips
Well it has been a really tough season for the Rams so far. A lack of results coupled with a lack of goals. On the weekend they ended a 407 minute goal drought in the Championship, but still didn’t land a win. They are struggling near the relegation zone in the division at the moment with just the one win in their eight games played there so far with just the one win on the board in the second tier. Their only other bright moments this season were in beating Grimsby in the first round of the League Cup and then edging out Carlise in a penalty shoot out to set up this clash against Liverpool. So they really don’t have the goals in them in him to stand toe to toe with Liverpool it would seem. Overall this season, the Rams have posted a W2 D4 L2 record and yes, they are underdogs for this tie.
Their form against Liverpool is pretty horrendous too. They have lost each of their last eight games against the Reds. The last time they met up was in the 2007/08 Premier League with Liverpool winning 8-1 on aggregate across the two games. Derby have lost their last four home games against Liverpool and the Rams failed to score in three of those four games as well, so this is a mountain in front of them on Tuesday night in the League Cup, unless they face a very much changed and weakened Liverpool side. Both teams not to score in the match will fetch you a quote of 19/20, not bad considering how badly the Rams have been struggling for goal this season. Derby have scored just one in their last four and just two in their last six.
So poor stuff from the Rams. Liverpool have been the heaviest scorers of all Premier League sides in 2016 calendar year. Not sure how the Rams are going to cope with that. The Reds were impressive in their win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea last Friday in the Premier League and they look very confident. They will probably take the opportunity to rest up some players for this one, but they have great attacking options to call on to get them through this tie still. Daniel Sturridge is 7/2 First Goalscorer favourite, with Danny Ings, Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino all around the 4/1 price. So plenty of options coming in from them.
Wait until the teams are announced before getting in on the action though of course. You can go over 2.5 goals for a price of 8/15 on the game. Liverpool went to the final of the League Cup last season and Klopp takes this pretty seriously. They landed a 5-0 away win at Championship side Burton in the last round and with no European interest this season,t the Reds are likely to go hard for this cup again. You can back Liverpool to go out and win this one to nil for a price of 13/10 as well which will probably have some big appeal. Liverpool have scored twelve goals in their last four games played now and you have a price of 3/1 on them to win by a 2 goal margin.

Derby v Liverpool Predictions
No real sign of an upset happening in this one. Liverpool are just flowing freely at the moment and in a confident mood and even the changes to the starting eleven shouldn’t interrupt their flow too much. Derby just haven’t been at the races well enough to suggest that they can cause a shock in this one. So look for an away win and Liverpool to do this by a margin of a couple of goals.
