- Title : Prediction Fotball: Manchester United - Liverpool, Premier Leauge
Man Utd are unbeaten in their last 13 Lge games and have won their last four home games. Liverpool are unbeaten in five and have avoided defeat in their last four away games. United will have played Roma on Thursday night and it is difficult to know how they come out of that. It may be the case, that they rest certain players depending on that result. Liverpool have become tougher to beat lately and with three of the last five encounters, ending all square, that seems the likeliest outcome. 1-1 ? 2-1, 1-2? I will go for a homewin or a draw in this one.
Man Utd has certainly been more consistent than Liverpool in this English season, however now they are focused on their Europa League semifinal vs Roma above all and they should save their best energies for those matches. Even if Man Utd should find some motivation in this clash against an historical opponent like Liverpool, I don't think they will win this clash and in the end there could be a draw.
Considering this is the most important game of the weekend, I won’t leave all of you out in the cold without a pick. I went into this thinking I might take a bit of a shot at Liverpool, who need this game much more than United (who are resigned to the fact that the title chase is over).
But Liverpool as a favorite, at 2,57, isn’t good enough money to start backing an inconsistent side against the second best team in England. So I’ll skip the line and go with a draw no bet. Big games have a tendency to be low scoring, especially as both teams focus on compact defending and preventing mistakes. Neither of these sides will want to concede early, and, when they focus, both have the quality to defend well.
I expect you see a lot of risk averse play here, as neither team will push too hard early on to put themselves in a hole, and you’ll get a fairly low scoring game overall. The biggest danger to this bet will be Liverpool exposing themselves too much, since they need the three points desperately, but I don’t expect United will be too lethal offensively, especially after a mid-week Europa Semi. At positive odds, the money is right here too. 0-0, 1-0, 1-1. 2-0?
