Prediction fotball: Leeds vs Liverpool, Premier Leauge
- Title : Prediction fotball: Leeds vs Liverpool, Premier Leauge
Leeds have won 6 drawn 3 and lost 6 of their 15 home league games played, and sit 10th in the Premiership with 45 points, winning their last league game played 1-2 away against Man City. Liverpool have won 7 drawn 5 and lost 3 of their 15 away league games played, and sit 6th in the Premiership with 52 points, winning their last league game played 2-1 at home against Aston Villa. Liverpool have already beaten Leeds 4-3 at hom this season. Both teams have won their last 3 league games played on the bounce. The last tie Leeds have beaten Liverpool was back i 2001. I am taking Liverpool to take all 3 points from this game tonight.
Even when crossing the incredible 'black series' of the Premier League, at home (two draws, followed by 6 consecutive defeats), Liverpool had good results, even very good in away games. The champion kept chances to catch a new season in the Champions League (1-4 places in the Premier League) precisely due to the points brought away. The huge stakes make Liverpool force a victory in Leeds, against a team in great shape, but which - realistically - does not have to achieve any big goal: it does not have much chance to catch the European Cups, nor does it have emotions with relegation.
When Leeds and Liverpool clash in the English Premier League, both teams have 3 straight league victories behind them. Still, there is a big class difference between the teams, not to mention the desire for revenge, the motivation and the will in Liverpool's squad. Manager Jürgen Klopp has said that the remaining 7 matches are all "finals" for Liverpool, who just have to win for the team to play in the Champions League next season.
Of course, Leeds should not be underestimated in any way. With 3 straight victories in the back over Fulham, Sheffield United and most recently table one Man City, they have shown a fantastic form where the game has been right. The 2-1 victory over Man City was a really strong achievement, where Leeds had team captain Liam Cooper sent off. But Leeds' sign is also that they have a hard time keeping the top level and fall for a while.
This can very well happen when the reigning league champions visit them. There is a great desire for revenge in Liverpool, who this week left the Champions League against Real Madrid. With this, the focus is entirely on the league game, where Liverpool park in a 6th place and have 4 points up to four West Ham, which will be chased. But then it takes 3 points against Leeds. About Liverpool
Leeds are without Rodrigo and Raphinha, two key players and although they beat Man City last week, this looks a decent price for Liverpool to win.
- Liverpool have won their last 3 matches against Leeds (all competitions)

- Liverpool have won 5 of their last 6 away matches (Premier League)
