Liverpool News and Form

There was yet another Premier League win for Liverpool last weekend as they picked up a 1-0 victory at Brighton. They had to work hard for the three points with the single goal in the game coming from a converted penalty kick from Mo Salah. That was an important three points too as it was a response to them having lost against Manchester City in their previous game. The loss against City is their only defeat in the top flight this season. Liverpool have won 10 of their last 11 Premier League games now. At Anfield this season in the top flight Liverpool are W9 D1 in ten games. In their 10 home games this season they have been scoring freely as well having tallied 27 goals at Anfield. As good as that is, it cannot outshine their defence which has conceded just three goals. 50% of their fixtures at Anfield this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Liverpool have scored at least three goals in each of their last three Premier League home fixtures. So if you put this all together does look as if they are going to be too strong for Crystal Palace on the weekend. Liverpool have scored in both halves of 60% of their Premier League home games this season. They have scored in each of their last 14 league games home and away combined. At home this season they have been leading at the halftime break in seven of their league games (D3). The only side in the division who have picked up more home points this season than Liverpool is Manchester City. However, Liverpool come out on top over them having the best defensive record in the top flight currently.

Crystal Palace News and Form

The Eagles couldn’t make the most of home advantage last weekend as they suffered a 2-1 defeat against the visiting Watford. Palace have done better out on the road this season than they have done at Selhurst Park. They have won four away games this season compared to just two on home soil. Overall this season Crystal Palace have posted a W4 D1 L6 record on their travels this season in the top flight. Away from Selhurst Park Crystal Palace have tallied 14 goals on their travels, conceding 17. They have actually banked four clean sheets this season away from home which isn’t a bad return from them at all. They have actually found a bit of scoring form away from home as Palace have netted at least two goals in each of their last three away games. One of those games was a huge upset in a 3-2 win at Manchester City last December which still is the biggest shock result of the entire Premier League season. Palace have been involved in some high-scoring games away from home as 36% of their road fixtures this season in the top flight have ended over 3.5 goals. Away from home, the second period of matches has produced the most goals in Palace's away fixtures. The Eagles have scored 64% of their goals away from home this season after the halftime break, but they have also conceded 65% of away goals in the second period of matches too.

Brighton News and Form

Brighton earned another good point for the season as they picked up a 2-2 draw against West Ham to start the new year. That has left them on a three-match undefeated streak of form in the top flight currently. Brighton's home form at the Amex is W5 D3 L2 and in their last home fixture, they got a solid 1-0 win over Everton. Brighton’s home form has been good as they have lost just one of their last seven Premier League games there. Brighton have produced 15 home goals, scoring in every home fixture so far. Will they keep that streak going against Liverpool on the weekend? This season Brighton have taken three home clean sheets and the last two league games at Brighton have ended under 2.5 goals. Just three of their home games have made it to over the 3.5 goal line this season but both teams have scored in 70% of league fixtures at the Amex. Four of their five home wins this season have been by a one-goal margin

What next for the Reds? They lost their first Premier League game of the season to kick off the new year. It was in a huge top-two showdown with Man City. Liverpool had been on a nine-match winning streak before that in the league. Overall this season on their top-flight travels Liverpool have produced a fantastic W8 D2 L1 run of form. They have averaged exactly two goals per away game as well. This season they have been much tighter at the back than last term, and Liverpool have conceded only seven away goals this season.

Wolves v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 7th January 2019

Watford
Wolves v Liverpool Betting Tips - FA Cup, 7th January 7.45pm Their big Premier League scrap with Man City didn’t go to plan on Thursday, and now Liverpool take a break from that pressure to take on the challenge of the FA Cup. It is a trip to Wolves which they face on Monday evening. Wolves have shown plenty of times this season they are capable of a shock. Read our predictions for Wolves v Liverpool.

Wolves v Liverpool Preview

Wolves have enjoyed a good season and they deserve a lot of credit for handling themselves so well up in the top flight. They did suffer a loss last time out as they went down 2-0 at home against Crystal Palace in the league. It leaves them with just the one win in their last four games home and away. They have lost back to back games against Molineux now and the first of those was a 2-0 league defeat against Liverpool just before Christmas. Four of their five home defeats this season have actually been by a 2-0 scoreline, so that’s a trend. Wolves have only managed to score in two for their last five at home. But now and again they have come up with stunning performances. Like their league home win over Chelsea and their come-from-behind recent victory out at Spurs. They are underdogs on home soil for this FA Cup clash. But with Liverpool not likely being at full strength, can Wolves take their chance? Liverpool suffered the first loss of their league season on Thursday night as they were beaten 2-1 at the Etihad by Manchester City. They stay out on the road now and Jurgen Klopp is likely to give some of his starters a bit of a break. Winning the league is obviously going to be a higher priority for them. On their travels, this season in all competitions Liverpool are W8 D2 L4 for the term. Three of their four defeats were in the Champions League group stage. They were on a three-match winning streak on their travels through before they visited Man City in midweek. They have scored in each of their last six games away from Anfield and have netted at least two in three of their last four. Liverpool are on a three-match winning streak at Molineux though and are winless in four there. They haven’t conceded in any of their last four trips to Wolves. Wolves though actually lead the FA Cup head to against Liverpool 4-2 and that includes their victory at Anfield back in January 2017, their most recent cup clash.

Wolves v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: You would still have to side with Liverpool to win even if they aren’t likely to be at full strength. The stand out option here is a Liverpool to win to nil option at 21/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 4th, 2019 at 7:46 p.m.).

This is the only home game that Manchester City have played this season against any of the other current top five. The Citizens have scored 35 home goals at an average of 3.5 goals per game. 70% of their home fixtures have gone over 3.5 goals. Manchester City have conceded just the nine goals in their ten home games Two-thirds of the home goals conceded have been in the first half of matches. They have a big trend going of having scored in both halves in every home game this term. Manchester City have also scored at least two goals in each home fixture played this term in the top flight. Their big problems have been at the back. They have gone without a clean sheet in any of their last seven Premier League fixtures. They have conceded in each of their last five league games on home soil. The Citizens have been W7 D2 L1 at half time on home soil this season. They have scored the opening goal in all of their home games this season. They need maximum points to cut Liverpool's lead to four points.

The London club are currently winless in three road games (D2 L1) and they have averaged 2.3 goals per road game. So that’s a big positive for them, but things read worse defensively.

Champions League Round of Sixteen Draw Preview & Odds

Real Madrid
There often comes a heavy price for not winning a Champions League group and both Liverpool and Manchester United have found that out. Liverpool will be going up against German giants Bayern Munich in their round of sixteen clash in the Champions League, while Manchester United have to try and deal with PSG. Man City and Spurs, like Liverpool, will face German opposition in Schalke and Borussia Dortmund respectively. The first legs of the round of sixteen take place on 12-13 and 19-20 February 2019. The reverse fixtures will be played on March 5-6 and 12-13, 2019.

Round of Sixteen Draw

Schalke v Manchester City Atletico Madrid v Juventus Manchester United v Paris St-Germain Tottenham v Borussia Dortmund Lyon v Barcelona Roma v Porto Ajax v Real Madrid Liverpool v Bayern Munich

Manchester United v PSG

Manchester United's group stage campaign wasn’t exactly filled with glory for them and after not chasing top spot on matchday six, they have paid a heavy price. They go up against French champions PSG, who traded home wins with Liverpool in the group stage. This will be United’s first ever encounter with PSG. With all of the struggles the Red Devils have had this season, being a long way off the pace in the Premier League title race and heavily criticized for performances, it is PSG who are 3/10 favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm)

Liverpool v Bayern Munich

The Reds finished second in their group behind PSG. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is no stranger to meetings with Bayern Munich. He has actually had more managerial duels with Bayern Munich than any other club during his career (29), thanks to his time with Borussia Dortmund. Klopp’s record incidentally against Bayern is W9 D4 L16. The last time that Bayern and Liverpool met was in the 2001 UEFA Super Cup which Liverpool won 3-2. Bayern aren’t having the greatest of seasons under Niko Kovac, sitting only in third in the Bundesliga. But they made light work of their group stage campaign to be fair. Liverpool are the 3/4 favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Schalke v Man City

Group winners Manchester City will be heading into a duel with Schalke for the first time in their history. The Citizens are the outright favourites to win this season's Champions League and this is a pretty comfortable draw for them by the looks of it. Schalke finished second in Group D behind Porto and with Man City responding so well from a Match Day One loss against Lyon to top theirs, it is little surprise to City sitting a strong 1/33 odds favourites to win this tie outright* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Tottenham v Borussia Dortmund

The Group Stage campaign was a rough ride for Tottenham and the round of sixteen draw doesn’t get any easier. The Lilywhites took just one point from their opening three group stage matches but managed to still fight back and squeeze their way through to the knockout stage. A draw at Barcelona in their final group match was just enough for them to beat out Inter. There could be rough waters ahead for Spurs in this time as Dortmund are in tremendous form this season. BVB are leading the Bundesliga by nine points and topped their Champions League group ahead of Atletico Madrid. In last season’s Group Stage Spurs and Dortmund were together, Tottenham winning 3-1 at home and 2-1 away. You can take an early price of 10/11 on either To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Ajax v Real Madrid

Real Madrid threw out some dodgy performances in the group stage, but they still managed to win that group. The reigning champions will fancy their chances against Ajax. The Spaniards have won their last six games on the bounce against Ajax. In that spell of six games, Real Madrid have fired off 20 goals and have conceded just the 2. The overall head to head between the two famous European clubs stands at 7-4 with one drawn game in favour of Real Madrid. Their most recent meeting was back in the 2012 group stage, with Real Madrid winning both meetings 4-1. Ajax qualified in second place from this season’s Group Stage behind Bayern Munich. Real Madrid are the 1/8 favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Atletico Madrid v Juventus

This is the real heavyweight showdown of the round of sixteen. How did we get here? It is because Atletico Madrid could only finish second to Borussia Dortmund in the group stage (level on points). So they have gotten the short straw of the draw as they have to go up against Juventus. The Old Lady topped their group, despite a shock home loss against Manchester United and away loss at Young Boys. This should be some duel. Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in their last nine games against Italian opposition. That includes their 2014 group stage meetings against Juve which Atletico won 1-0 at home and took a 0-0 in Turin. Juventus lead the overall head to head 4-2 with the one drawn game. You can only imagine that this is going to be as tight as it gets but Juventus are 2/5 odds-on To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Lyon v Barcelona

Lyon finished second in their Group Stage campaign behind Manchester City. To their credit, they took four points from their two games against the English champions. How will they fare against Barcelona? They have met three times before in the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona holding an unbeaten W4 D2 record from the six matches. Four of those six games produced at least three goals in them and Lyon haven’t earned a clean sheet against their Spanish counterparts before. Barcelona went about their business in the group stage quietly, efficiently and at some times brilliantly. They topped their group ahead of Spurs, remaining unbeaten. Barcelona are the 1/14 odds-on favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).

Roma v Porto

FC Porto were group winners over Schalke and this is a repeat of last season’s playoff meeting in the Champions League. It was Porto who came through that tie 4-1 on aggregate so they can take that positive into this one. Those were the only two previous games between the two clubs. Roma scrapped their way through to second place in Group G behind Real Madrid but didn’t have it all that easy at all in a W3 L3 record there. If there hadn’t been a draw between Plzen and CSKA Moscow back on matchday one as it turned out, Roma would have been in qualification trouble at the end. You can take 10/11 on either To Qualify* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 12:16 pm).
