Liverpool vs Real Madrid Betting Tips
Liverpool are facing a huge uphill struggle in order to make the semi-final stage of the Champions League, with the Reds being deservedly beaten 3-1 in the Spanish capital and there were more question marks over that fragile back four who were regularly penetrated by their opponents.
Jurgen Klopp must now try and engineer a victory by a two-goal margin over the Spanish champions, with a 2-0 win sending the Merseyside team through although it seems implausible that they’ll stop Real Madrid scoring at least once.
Liverpool Betting Favourites to Win Second Leg
Liverpool won’t really have home advantage in this clash and they have suffered a number of Premier League defeats at Anfield this season, although the bookies make Klopp’s men odds-on favourites in the match betting and it’s hard to justify backing them at such a short betting price.
Our prediction is that Diogo Jota might start along with Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, while Thiago Alcantra will surely feature in the engine room after being left out at the start of the first leg although the Spaniard might be busy putting out fires.
Real Madrid Strong Favourites to Qualify for UCL Semis
Real Madrid are the 1/4 betting favourites to qualify for the last four of the Champions League and they will know that a goal at Anfield will take the tie right away from a Liverpool side who would then need three goals in order to take the clash into extra-time.
Toni Kroos will look to cause some damage and the midfield that also comprises Casemiro and Luka Modric looked very dominant in the first leg, although our betting tip is that there will be three or more goals scored in total.
Liverpool have to get on the front foot in this clash but the pace of Vinicius Junior could cause problems and Karim Benzema often doesn’t need an invitation to score goals.
