Betting Tip: Liverpool -1 Asian Handicap

Liverpool will have been disappointed to not win that game against Brentford but their attacking play was good once again. The Reds will be aiming to build on their come from behind win over Milan in matchday 1 as they head to the Estadio Do Dragao to face Porto.

Porto did well to come away from Atletico Madrid with a point a fortnight ago but I think that Liverpool pose a much greater attacking threat than the Spaniards. On the road in this competition Liverpool seem to up their game, we can remember the 5-0 thumping of Atalanta in Bergamo as well as a 2-0 victory in Leipzig. This is arguably an easier opponent who are without defender Chancel Mbemba and have doubts over experienced centre half Pepe.

Up front I’m not sure the hosts have the required quality to hurt the visitors an in all honesty I’m surprised Liverpool aren’t shorter than the 3/4 best price on offer. I’ll go a bit more ambitious and take the 13/10 on Liverpool with a -1 start on the asian handicap. Here we need them to win by two or more goals to win our bet but if they win by a single goal then our stakes will be returned.

Liverpool -1 Asian Handicap - 1.5pts @ 13/10
