Arsenal vs Liverpool – Under 2.5 Goals

Arsenal host Liverpool in the second leg of the EFL Cup semi-final after a goalless draw in the first leg last week. We expect this to be similarly cagey affair with the tie poised on a knife-edge where one goal could be the difference maker. Liverpool’s attacking threat has been significantly blunted after losing Salah and Mane to international duty, meanwhile, the Gunners have scored just once in their last three matches in all competitions. Arsenal will have some players back after injury and covid absences, but they may lack a little match sharpness.

Ivory Coast vs Algeria – Both Teams to Score – Yes

Ivory Coast and Algeria clash in their final Group E match on Thursday. It’s a must-win game for AFCON holders Algeria who have nothing to lose as they look to book their place in the Round of 16. Eric Bailly who sustained an injury vs Sierra Leone could be a big miss for Ivory Coast’s back four who conceded twice last time out. The Ivory Coast will be keen to finish top of the Group and their attack has been growing in confidence. Zaha, Haller and Pepe are likely to make up the front three and they’ll be confident of getting on the scoresheet after putting two past Sierra Leone.

Getafe vs Granada – Both Teams to Score – No

On paper, Getafe vs Granada looks a tricky one to predict with both teams lacking consistency of late. Having said that, these sides tend to keep things tight with Granada only conceding three in their last five. Getafe’s 5-0 defeat to Atletico Baleares in the cup was an anomaly after going down to 10 men in the 32nd minute as usually with 11 men they are defensively solid. We expect this to be another tight match with 1-0 either way a plausible score line.
