Match Betting (1x2)

Liverpool won last season’s Champions League although there are several reasons why they might not retain their title. For starters, it’s pretty difficult to win this competition on a consecutive basis and there are several formidable teams that they would need to overcome in order to triumph.

This includes Atletico Madrid who served an example as to what they’re all about by beating the Reds 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano three weeks ago and will now feel confident of getting the job done at Anfield.

Liverpool are trading at 1/2 with Ladbrokes to win this clash in ninety minutes, although much depends on whether Jurgen Klopp’s side are able to get an early goal.

Should the game be goalless after thirty minutes, you might expect Liverpool’s match price to drift towards the even money mark, with a draw proving to be enough for Diego Simeone’s side to inch over the line on Merseyside.

Paddy Power go 3/1 about the clash ending all square and that would mean that last year’s winners exit the competition, although Liverpool clearly have to be careful when it comes to conceding an away goal.

That would mean needing to score three goals, something which the champions-elect of England are capable of doing, although this Atleti defence have already proved tough when it comes to stopping their opponents.

There have also been a few concerning performances from Liverpool recently, especially the 3-0 reversal at Watford which will have shaken the team’s confidence ahead of this clash.

The visitors are available at 15/2 with William Hill to win the clash in ninety minutes although there won’t be a huge appetite when it comes to attacking and you can expect a defensively organised performance.

To Qualify

Liverpool supporters might have declared themselves happy when the draw for the last sixteen of the Champions League was made, although a failure to score at the Wanda Metropolitano could easily come back to haunt the team in this game.

BetVictor offer 19/20 about the Reds going through on the night although they will need to win by two clear goals in order to qualify without extra-time and potentially penalties.

Liverpool are clearly capable of scoring goals through the likes of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, although they might initially tread cautiously against a dangerous team.

Atletico Madrid will feel as though they’re in the box seat after winning that first leg encounter 1-0 and William Hill go 19/20 about the Spanish side steering themselves through to the quarter final stage.

Both Teams to Score

The bookies are far from certain that both teams will find the net at Anfield. After all, the onus won’t be on Atletico Madrid to attack even if they concede the opening goal of the game.

BetVictor chalk up 3/4 about the “No” option on the Both Teams to Score market, with the visitors clearly the ones least likely to find the net considering a goalless draw would see them through.

As for the “Yes” option, that is currently trading at 11/10 with Paddy Power and perhaps it’s in the interests of the visitors to get the goal that might leave their opponents needing to score three times.
