Match Betting (1x2)

Jurgen Klopp will be fairly happy with Liverpool’s situation in the Champions League considering that they lost their opening match in Naples, especially as their second game in Europe saw Red Bull Salzburg come storming back from 3-0 down to draw level before the Merseyside team claimed the win.

A welcome double header against Genk led to six more points and another victory at Anfield against Napoli will see the Reds through to the last sixteen before their final group game in Austria.

As always, it’s hard to oppose a Liverpool victory on home soil in any competition and especially a European clash where the team are capable of blowing away any sort of opponents as Barcelona can testify from last season when they were demolished by a 4-0 scoreline.

Unibet are bravest with their 8/15 quote about a win for Liverpool and the home side are sure to be in many Champions League accumulators placed throughout the evening, although some will point to the fact that Napoli are also a class act.

The Azzurri missed out at the last sixteen stage last season after finishing third behind PSG and Liverpool, although it was fine margins and they’re well placed after landing four points against Red Bull Salzburg.

The draw is a tasty proposition at 7/2 considering it would put both teams in a strong position going into the final round of matches and Napoli will face Genk in their final clash of the group stage.

As for the away win, how dearly Carlo Ancelotti would love to win at Anfield with his team and Unibet have 5/1 that the visitors get over the line in this one which would mean Liverpool travel to Salzburg for their final game feeling a touch nervous about staying in the competition.

Asian Handicap

While the thought of Napoli winning the game and throwing open the section is an exciting one, the plain truth is that Liverpool have been winning by comfortable margins for quite some time at Anfield.

Therefore, many punters might cast their eye towards the Asian Handicap market in the hope of getting with the Reds at a much bigger price than 8/15 and the great news is that you can get them at 87/100 with a -1 handicap which would mean money back if they won by one goal.

However, this bet would mean that a Liverpool victory by two goals or more would see you profit with this bet. If you think that the Reds are on for a handsome win, you could even try the 13/9 about a home win off an Asian Handicap mark of -1.5 which would mean a two-goal victory would be needed.

First Goalscorer

While some would consider the First Goalscorer market in a Liverpool match to be a toss of a coin between Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, it’s the former who has the better track record when it comes to scoring the opening goal.

The forward found the net for his team in the recent victory over Manchester City and he’s a 3/1 poke to break the deadlock, while Liverpool’s Egyptian King is the same price and you could do worse that back the pair which would mean a profit whichever player scored first.

Perhaps this is a market where backing James Milner could profit considering the midfielder will be on penalty duties should he grace the pitch, while Trent Alexander-Arnold is always a bigger priced contender.

Napoli have leading lights of their own and Dries Mertens has been plundering goals in the centre forward position for several years, with the Belgian a 6/1 chance to score first.

Both Teams to Score

Liverpool have not been keeping a huge number of clean sheets in Europe or domestically this season and we’re leaning towards the “Yes” option on this market as a result.

The bookies take the same view and go 4/7 about both teams finding the net during the ninety minutes, while the “No” option is trading at 29/20 and that could come down to whether Liverpool are able to shut out their opponents.
