Betting Tip: Liverpool to win 3-1
There’s no doubt that Liverpool were way below par in the first leg of this contest. Real Madrid looked the more comfortable and composed of the two but their nerve will be firmly tested at Anfield. The away goal by Mo Salah could prove to be decisive, it means a 2-0 win for the hosts will see them through, that being said their defence has been a real problem area for them of late with clean sheets much harder to come by due to their injuries at centre half.
Madrid won the Clasico at the weekend in stormy conditions and given their injury list and lack of depth you have to wonder about the energy levels after a testing few weeks which they’ve come through well. Vinicius Junior has linked up well with Karim Benzema of late and they’ll certainly pose a threat but it’s defensively where they’re light at the moment with Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane both out with covid and right backs Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez on the treatment table.
The reds have always shown themselves to be a force in Europe when playing at Merseyside and I do fancy them to make a real game of it. I could see a situation where it goes into extra time and right to the death after Liverpool win 3-1, it would be typical of them to do so. In a game where prices are quite tight I’m happy to have a small stab at the correct score.
