Liverpool News and Form – Will Liverpool’s plans pay off?

Because of a fixture clash with their EFL Cup quarter-final against West Ham this week, Liverpool had a choice. They sent out a young starting eleven to face Villa and took their senior squad to contest the FIFA Club World Cup. The youngsters took a hammering against Villa, so Liverpool sacrificed potential domestic cup success for this FIFA tournament that barely anyone ever remembers.

The Reds, who weren’t at full strength (playing Jordan Henderson in the back line), were up against Mexican team Montererry in the semi-finals. That is the stage at which Liverpool and Saturday’s opponent Flamengo entered the tournament. A stoppage-time strike from Bobby Firmino gave Liverpool a 2-1 success in the match. Will the Reds now be able to go on and claim the win? This is their second appearance in the FIFA Club World Cup having lost to Sao Paulo back in the 2005 Final.

  • This is Liverpool’s second appearance, it is Flamengo’s debut

 

Flamengo News and Form – Can Brazilians pull off an upset?

Flamengo caused an upset in beating title holders River Plate in the finale of the Copa Libertadores. So they are making their debut at the FIFA Club World Cup. They were up against Hilal in their semi-final fixture and came through it with relative comfort, putting a 3-1 score on the board.

They will be going into this as underdogs and the trend of successes in the final have gone to UEFA teams. So this is one of those strange situations where it’s hard to gauge the level of Liverpool’s opposition. It leaves punters wondering if they will be able to come up with something different to perhaps snap Liverpool’s massive winning mentality. The Brazilians are likely worth at least backing to get on the scoreboard.

Liverpool vs Flamengo Predictions

Liverpool to win: Games like this are so difficult to read as there’s no head to head, nothing to gauge tactics or anything on. Liverpool are having a stunning year and don’t seem to know how to lose whatever they are facing. Liverpool to win & both teams to score, however, as Liverpool aren’t at their strongest because of injury and illness.
