Liverpool v Middlesbrough Betting Preview – Premier League 21st May 3.00pm

The job for Liverpool is simple enough on Sunday at Anfield. They just go out and win their game and they will be guaranteed a top four finish which means UEFA Champions League football next season for them. They can be still caught by Arsenal if they fail to win this game, so they have to put in a good shift. A home game against a Middlesbrough side who have little away form for the season and who are already relegated, shouldn’t pose them too much of a problem in getting the job done.

Liverpool v Middlesbrough Betting Tips

Liverpool couldn’t have asked for a much easier game on the final day of the season than the one that they are going to be playing. The Reds have to take a win to guarantee that they will be in the Champions League next season. Liverpool have gone W2 D1 L1 in their last four games, and they have failed to win any of their last three on home soil now (D2 L1). So that home form has been a surprise from them, but punters will expect them to come good in this one. They have to leave it all out there. Overall, Liverpool have a good W11 D5 L2 record on home soil this season in the Premier League and they took a comfortable 3-0 win at the Riverside against Boro earlier in the season. 67% of Liverpool’s home games this season have seen at least three goals and over 2.5 goals at William Hill is a quote of 3/5. Liverpool were rampant in a 4-0 win at West Ham last weekend to boost their confidence and Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino are around the 6/5 mark in the anytime goalscorer market, with Philippe Coutinho at 11/8. Liverpool have won eight of their 10 Premier League final day games at Anfield (D2), scoring 27 goals.

Boro have lost five of their last six top-flight away trips on the final day (D1), although they did record a final day victory on Merseyside in the 99-00 season, beating Everton 2-0. Boro have nothing to play for at all in this one and pride alone isn’t likely to get them points on the board. Away from home in the Premier League this season, Middlesbrough have gone W1 D7 L10 out on the road and currently, they are riding a rough six-match losing streak away from the Riverside. Boro have failed to score in eight of their last ten away games as well now, so a Liverpool to win to nil wager at William Hill is a quote of 8/13 which will have some big appeal. In the William Hill Correct Score market a Liverpool 3-0 victory comes in at a price of 11/2, with a 2-0 result trading at 9/2. Boro are winless in their last eighteen away games in the top flight and although they have lost their last four Premier League trips to Anfield.

Liverpool v Middlesbrough Predictions

Liverpool home win: It’s hard to imagine that Liverpool are going to slip up in this one at Anfield on Sunday. Boro have nothing to play for and the Reds can secure themselves Champions League football with a comfortable win, probably to nil as well.
