Maribor v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 17th October 2017

Liverpool
Maribor v Liverpool Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 17th October 7.45pm The Reds are already feeling the pressure in the Champions League group stage having only picked up back to back frustrating draws to start their campaign with. It was supposed to have been much better for them. They need a win in this one now to get some momentum behind them because they still have a tough trip to Seville to come later in the group. This is their chance to get back into the mix of things against a Maribor side who only have one previous victory over English opposition before. The Reds can’t afford to mess this one up on Tuesday night out in Slovenia.

Maribor v Liverpool Betting Tips

Maribor opened their Champions League campaign this season with a 1-1 home draw against Spartak Moscow but then fell heavily in a 3-0 loss at Sevilla. So they need to pick up a win to get themselves up and running really and this is their first ever game against Liverpool. The Slovenians have had experience against English sides before but have won just one of their eight previous matches against English opposition and that was over Wigan in the 2013/14 UEFA Europa League group stage. With that having been said though, they have lost just one of their four previous home games against Premier League opposition. They have only met one English side before in the Champions League and that was against Chelsea in the 2014/15 group stage when they held out for a 1-1 home draw. This may not be the high scoring game that it could be and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is a price of 27/20 to consider. Maribor's overall record against English teams is W1 D2 L5 but their current European form isn’t all that bad and that is because they are unbeaten in eight European home fixtures (W5 D3) and have only lost just three of their last 14 games, home and away (W6 D5). However, specifically in the Champions League, they are looking for their first ever victory in the group stage. This is only the third time that they have been in the group stage having been here in 1999/2000 and 2014/15. In that 2014/15 season, they held both Sporting and Chelsea to 1-1 draws before losing 1-0 against Schalke. So that hints at a narrow margin. In the William Hill correct score market, a 1-1 draw is a big 12/1 price with a Liverpool 2-0 victory the shortest priced option at a price of 9/2. Will they be able to frustrate Liverpool who are out of winning touch? Liverpool are not carrying good form as they have only gone W1 D4 L1 in their last six across all competitions. They played out a 0-0 draw against Manchester United on the weekend and again after dominating the game, their strikers were wasteful which is becoming a real problem for them. Liverpool have only scored more than one goal in just one of their last six fixtures now. They have Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino as joint 8/11 anytime goalscorer favourites at William Hill. The Reds have only met Slovene opposition once before and that was in the 2003/04 UEFA Cup when they drew 1-1 at NK Olimpija Ljubljana before a 3-0 victory at Anfield. So it is just two points from two games from Liverpool on their return to Europe. After producing a 6-3 aggregate win over Hoffenheim in the play offs, Liverpool were expected to have a strong campaign. In their last eight games in all competitions, Liverpool have picked up only the one win and so they won’t totally be a convincing option for punters. The Reds have picked up just the two wins in their last 14 European away games (D7 L5), as well, one of those a victory over Hoffenheim in the play offs this season. Their previous away win was all the way back in November 2015 when they won at Rubin Kazan in the Europa League. Both teams not to score at William Hill in this one is a price of 1/2. So far in the group Liverpool have found themselves frustrated in a 2-2 home draw with Sevilla before being held to just a 1-1 draw at Spartak Moscow. They have just been lacking that winning touch lately, but they really need to discover it here to light the touchpaper of their Champions League campaign.

Maribor v Liverpool Betting Odds

Liverpool 1/6, Draw 11/2, Maribor 16/1

Maribor v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: The Reds have to deliver the goods in this one and they should be able to get the victory on the board. Maribor really aren’t much of a threat to anyone despite grinding out a point against Spartak Moscow in their last home game. Liverpool are better than the Russians are and can therefore go and secure three points with a win to nil against Maribor.

Liverpool v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Liverpool
Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 12.30pm What makes this one so interesting is not only the high-profile nature of the clash but because this is the first time this season that Manchester United will have been tested against a top six side from last season. United have put together a good season so far having dropped only two points, but how will they stand up to the quick Liverpool attack? The Reds have home advantage and while inconsistencies have plagued them this season, they need a big performance to shift some momentum and maybe this is the game it happens in.

Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Tips

What a game to kick off the Premier League return with. Liverpool needs a big performance in this one to land a victory that could really spark their season into life. So far this season, their returns in the top flight have been a little disappointing with a W3 D3 L1 record having been posted by Jurgen Klopp’s men. They are unbeaten though at home in the Premier League with a W2 D1 record with wins over Crystal Palace and Arsenal, but their most recent home game saw them frustrated in a 1-1 draw with Burnley. Liverpool’s attack has either not been clinical enough on the day, or shoddy defending has let them down. Not everything has come together often enough for them. But they are a talented, positive squad and are favourites because they handled themselves well against the other top six last term. With each of the last five between these two having produced two goals or less, under 2.5 goals at bet365 looks a bit of value at even money. Last Six Premier League Head to Head Man Utd 1 - 1 Liverpool Liverpool 0 - 0 Man Utd Liverpool 0 - 1 Man Utd Man Utd 3 - 1 Liverpool Liverpool 1 - Man Utd 2 Man Utd 3 - 0 Liverpool

Liverpool vs Manchester United 2017 Infographic

The two fixtures between United and Liverpool in the top flight last season both ended in a draw. In the anytime goalscorer market, Liverpool’s shortest priced options are Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino at 6/4 while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are at 13/8. Liverpool to win to nil is 7/2 at bet365 and that would be on the back of them having collected two clean sheets in three league home games this season and having blanked United in their last two home games against them (one Premier League, one Europa League). Both teams not to score in this fixture at bet365 returns a price of 6/5. Because of their patchy form, this suddenly becomes a high pressure game for Liverpool who start seven points back of the Red Devils in the league standings. Back in August, they caused a stir in destroying Arsenal at Anfield, can they do the same to the Red Devils? They have only gone W1 D4 L1 in all competitions in their last six games, so aren’t necessarily carrying great form so would need to raise their game. Current League Form (most recent last) Liverpool WWLDWD Man Utd WWDWWW Manchester United have had a solid and comfortable start to the season. They have only conceded two goals now in their last nine Premier League games stretching back to the end of the last term. They are ticking over in great form at the moment with them being on a six match winning streak going across all competitions. However, their fixture list so far has favoured them a lot and this will be the first time this season that they have faced any of the teams who are currently sitting inside of the top ten in the table. So they really haven’t been tested at all, so how will their defence stand up against a good attack? United have six clean sheets in their seven games and United to win t nil at bet365 is a 9/2 price. Out on the road, they have gone W2D1, the dropped points coming in a draw at Stoke. When they went to St Mary’s in their last league away game they had a real test against Southampton and had to get out of Dodge with a 1-0 win. But Liverpool will threaten them a lot more than the Saints did. Romelu Lukaku, who has seven Premier League goals this season is the bet365 first goalscorer favourite at a price of 7/2. The Red Devils have suffered just the one loss in their last eight games across all competitions against Liverpool in a W4 D3 L1 record They are winless in their last four against them though in a D3 L1 record. The Red Devils have shown this season, especially late on in games, that they are a powerful side on the counter attack. Against a Liverpool side who like to throw men forward, that could work well in their favour. But there will be question marks over they handle their first real test of the league season.

Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Odds

Liverpool 8/5, Manchester United 13/8, Draw 12/5

Liverpool v Manchester United Predictions

Draw: There is no clear picture of how United’s defence will stand up to a stern test, while Liverpool haven’t been able to put a winning performance together for a while and remain vulnerable at the back. Therefore backing the recent trend of drawn matches between them should offer value.

Newcastle v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 1st October 2017

Newcastle
Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Preview - Premier League 1st October 4.30pm This should be an entertaining fixture from Tyneside on Sunday evening. Newcastle are unbeaten in their last three on home soil and they have won their last two Premier League fixtures there. Liverpool have now won just one of their last six games across all competitions and either it is their defence letting them down or they can’t convert enough of the many chances that they create for themselves in a match. This should be an entertaining battle between the two to round off the Premier League weekend.

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Tips

Newcastle are carrying a little home from going in to this high profile clash with Liverpool on Sunday. They are unbeaten in their last three top flight home fixtures against the Reds so that is a confidence-booster for them and they have won their last two games there this season as well in the Premier league, having taken back to back wins over West Ham and Stoke. So some nice momentum in the northeast, but they suffered a tough loss down at Brighton last weekend so will want to respond to that. Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez will get a shot against his form club and with this expected to be an open, end to end game, over 2.5 goals at Bet365 returns a price of 4/6. Newcastle have done alright at the back this season as Spurs are the only side to have managed to score more than one goal against them in a league game this season. Newcastle have two clean sheets in three of their league wins. Both teams to score at bet356 returns a price of 8/11 though and this should be that open. Newcastle have a W4 D1 L1 record in their last six Premier League home against Liverpool so it does all read pretty well for then as they head into this fixture. Dwight Gayle is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option for them going into this game with Joselu at 15/8. Since meeting Spurs on the opening weekend of the new season, this will be the toughest test that the Magpies have faced since then. Newcastle have not been behind at the break in any of their six Premier League games this season so with that in mind and Liverpool as favourites, a Draw/Liverpool half time/full time bet at bet365 returns a price of 7/2. Things haven’t gone too well for Liverpool this season as they are five points back of the Premier League leaders going into the weekend, but they have only managed back to back draws in the Champions League and have crashed out of the League Cup. In their three away games in the Premier League this season, they have conceded an average of three goals per game which is a huge concern. They opened with a 3-3 draw at Watford, were hammered 5-0 at the Etihad by Man City and then were pushed in a 3-2 victory at Leicester last time out. Along with their defence giving away sloppy goals, their powerfully quick attack has been extremely wasteful with chances lately. They do have Sadio Mane back for them and he is a joint 5/4 first goalscorer favourite at bet365 alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah for the Reds.

Newcastle v Liverpool Betting Odds

Liverpool 4/, Draw 14/5, Newcastle 4/1

Newcastle v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: The Reds have struggled for returns on Tyneside in recent visits, but they are not far away from putting everything together and landing a good solid away win that could push them onto better things. Expect at least a goal at both ends but Liverpool can nab the away win.

Spartak Moscow v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 26th September 2017

Liverpool
Spartak Moscow v Liverpool Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 26th September 7.45pm These long away nights in Europe are never easy and the Reds have to make the long haul over to Moscow. On Match Day One, both matches in the group played out a draw, with Liverpool being held at Anfield against Sevilla, which was a bit of a missed opportunity for them. However, they are kicking off as favourites out in Russia in this one. It may be one of those enduring, long nights were just getting a win on the board in any shape or form will count for a lot.

Spartak Moscow v Liverpool Betting Tips

This will be just the fifth meeting between Spartak Moscow and Liverpool and things are even from the previous clashes. Spartak Moscow almost claimed three points out at Maribor on match day one, before being pegged back late for a 1-1 draw. The last time that the Russians hosted an English side was when they met Chelsea in 2010/11 and they lost both games against the Blues (6-1 on aggregate) in the group stage. Overall Spartak Moscow’s record against English clubs W9 D2 L6; at home, it reads W5 D1 L2. This is the first time that they have been back in the group stage since 2012/13 and on each of their last two appearances at the group stage, they have posted a W1 L2 record on home soil. The Russians have lost each of their last three home games in Europe and have suffered defeats in four of their last five there. They have won only four of their last 17 home games, losing 11. They are without a win in their last eight European fixtures, home and away, since a 2-1 victory over Benfica on 23 October 2012. Their record since then is D3 L5. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 fetches a price of 7/10. From the four previous games between these two, Liverpool won both meetings in the 2002/03 season of the Champions League, while Spartak won the two meetings in the 1992/93 European Cup Winners’ Cup. Liverpool couldn’t get a win on the board in the opening fixture of this season’s Champions League as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Sevilla at Anfield. The last time that Liverpool went to Russia they did come away with a win as they beat Rubin Kazan 1-0 in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League group stage and that extended an unbeaten run against Russian opponents to three matches (W2 D1). Liverpool’s record in Russia reads W3 D0 L3 so not much to take from that. Liverpool’s away form in Europe isn't all that great because they had won just two of their last 13 away games in Europe (D6 L5) before they posted a win at Hoffenheim in the play off round this season. So they haven’t been the greatest out on the road. Mohamed Salah is carrying a bit of form with six goals in nine appearances for Liverpool and is a 13/10 anytime goalscorer option for this one with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane at 3/2. Both teams to score at bet365 is a price of 7/10 and that’s always an option where Liverpool are involved of course because of their defence. The 1-1 draw in the bet365 correct score market returns a price of 13/2 while a Liverpool to get a 1-0 win is a 7/1 poke.

Spartak Moscow v Liverpool Betting Odds

Liverpool 4/6, Draw 3/1, Spartak Moscow 15/4

Spartak Moscow v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: Liverpool will know that they have to perform in this and it should be a relatively sedate game. Moscow will frustrate them in periods but the hosts may not have enough going forward to actually take advantage of any weakness in Liverpool’s defence. Away win.

Leicester v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 23rd September 2017

Leicester
Leicester v Liverpool Betting Preview - Premier League 23rd September 5.30pm Leicester took a 2-0 home win over Liverpool in midweek. Both sides made plenty of changes to starting elevens for that League Cup match, but Liverpool’s fortunes stayed the same. They were dominant in the first half, but were wasteful and ended up paying the price. There’s a big problem, therefore, Jurgen Klopp to sort out. That’s a three match winning streak that the Foxes are on now at the King Power against the Reds, will they extend it?

Leicester v Liverpool Betting Tips

Just after a meeting in the EFL Cup at the King Power, Leicester and Liverpool will meet up once again. Leicester took a 2-0 win over the Reds in their Caribou Cup fixture on Tuesday and that was their third win on the bounce against Liverpool at home in all competitions. They are a pretty big 10/3 price at some bookmakers to win this, which feels a little bit inflated. Liverpool will bring a stronger starting eleven to the party though and the Foxes themselves made plenty of changes in midweek. At home this season in the Premier League, Leicester have posted a W1 L1 record, beating Brighton and then losing against Chelsea. There hasn’t been a clean sheet home or away from them yet this term and therefore both teams to score at William Hill fetches a price of 8/13 and has to be on the radar. Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings between Leicester and Liverpool. So there is a high expectancy of goals in this one and there have been three or more goals in five of the last eight fixtures between the two clubs. Leicester are very good on the counter attack and with Liverpool’s defence not showing any consistency this season, Jamie Vardy is a great 8/5 anytime goalscorer option at William Hill for the game. Shinji Okazaki got himself a goal in midweek and was a real game changer, and he is a price of 12/5 to get on the scoresheet again. The Foxes have hit the back of the net in each of their last four home games against Liverpool, and they have scored at least two in each of their last three there against them. It is probably worth backing the game to go over 2.5 goals at 8/11. Liverpool aren’t running in hot form at the moment as they have gone winless in their last four games (D2 L2) across all competitions. There has been some wastefulness going forward and sloppiness at the back. They will have to go again without the suspended Sadio Mane, who has been their star performer this season, but they still pack an attacking punch without him, especially as they take on defence which hasn’t earned a clean sheet this term. Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino are joint 5/4 favourites in the anytime goalscorer market. Away from Anfield this season, the Reds have one point from two games, which was a 3-3 draw at Watford and then that crushing 5-0 loss at the Etihad against Man City when Maine was dismissed. That’s a lot of away goals conceded. In the William Hill correct score market a Liverpool 2-1 result is at 8/1 with only the 1-1 draw between them trading shorter at 13/2.

Leicester v Liverpool Betting Odds

Liverpool 10/1, Draw 13/5, Leicester 14/5

Leicester v Liverpool Predictions

Leicester to win: The Foxes did a real number on Liverpool, despite being second best for long periods. Liverpool’s defensive woes continued even though this wasn’t their strongest starting eleven and Leicester may have enough up their sleeve to make it back to back wins in the space of a few days against the Reds.

Man City shorten for Premier League title, while Palace shorten for drop

Manchester City
The Citizens showed some six-appeal on the weekend as they smashed Watford at Vicarage Road. Pep Guardiola’s men have had some week. They destroyed Liverpool 5-0 on the 9th, crushed Feyenoord 4-0 in midweek in the UEFA Champions League and then put a 6-0 victory on the board over Watford. So it appears that they are up and running fully now and after making their breakthrough after half an hour at Vicarage Road, Man City’s performance was sublime. The Manchester City squad is growing in stature and togetherness and the players now look confident and eager to get on the ball. Sergio Aguero netted what was the sixth hattrick of his Manchester City career and he helped the Citizens to hold top spot in the Premier League at the end of the weekend, sat on 13 points from five games level with rivals Manchester United and three points clear of reigning champions Chelsea who sit in third after their 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Sunday. Chelsea’s failure to beat a stubborn Arsenal saw the Blues go on the drift a little bit for the League title out at 11/2 with William Hill. Manchester City were shortened to 2.1 at Betfair after their result against Watford on the weekend, while Manchester United have also been cut as their fine season marches on. The Red Devils are 5/2 to get their hands on the Premier League title this season and it would seem that their greatest rivals City are the one ones standing between them and doing it. Tottenham and Liverpool, after both were held to frustrating draws on the weekend, have been on the drift in the William Hill Premier League outright winner market. The Reds, after a home draw with Burnley, are now a big 20/1 shot to win the title, with Tottenham having slipped back to 14/1. With the two Manchester clubs going well at the summit, there are some interesting prices in the Premier League Top Four 4 Finish market, with Spurs holding ground at 4/5 with Liverpool at even money and Arsenal shortening over the weekend to 3/2. At the other end of the table, Crystal Palace’s forgettable season continued as they made it five defeats on the bounce and still no goal. After showing Frank de Boer the door and bringing in Roy Hodgson, there was no change in the result for the Eagles as they lost out against Southampton. Palace are now 10/11 odds on favourites to suffer relegation from the Premier League this season, followed by Brighton at 11/10 and Huddersfield at 13/8.
