Jurgen Klopp’s men fired seven goals for the second time in the group stages on Wednesday night
Liverpool’s impressive performance in their 7-0 hammering of Spartak Moscow at Anfield on Wednesday night had punters rushing to back the Merseyside club to add a sixth European Cup to their CV.
The Reds’ front four of Coutinho, Firmino, Salah and Mane ran riot as they tore through the Russians time and again to record their second 7-0 victory of the group stage, matching their effort away to Maribor in gameweek four. The emphatic nature of the win led to 52.27% of bets on the outright market since kick-off on Wednesday being placed on Liverpool. They are currently a stand out 25/1 with Betfred with most firms cutting their odds off the back of the seven goal show with some now as short as 16/1.

Paris St Germain remain popular with punters despite suffering their first defeat of the campaign away to German giants Bayern Munich on Tuesday night. They currently top the market at 7/2 and received 7.79% of all bets in the same time period.
Completing the top three are current champions Real Madrid who saw off Dortmund at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night and can be backed at 6/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: "Liverpool have now scored an incredible 29 goals in eight Champions League games under Klopp and their attacking four are arguably one of the most fearsome in Europe when on song. Obviously the draw for the last 16 will be important but Klopp will fancy his chances against any of Europe’s elite in front of the Kop with the talent he has at his disposal.”
