Betting tip: Back Liverpool to see off Leeds this Tuesday in the EFL Cup.
Liverpool will this week welcome the visit of Leeds United in the EFL Cup, with the home side tipped to secure a win.
A home victory is backed at 2/7 with bet365 this Tuesday, while an away win is 10/1 and a draw in 90 minutes is 11/2. The hosts are the 1/10 favourites to qualify while Leeds are 10/1.
Liverpool enter the fray this week looking to assert their stronger side and impressive form on a fellow English footballing giant in the form of Leeds, with both clubs enjoying a rich history and anticipating a bright future in this season’s EFL Cup. Jurgen Klopp’s side had to be patient to beat Sunderland 2-0 last weekend, with that win leaving the Merseyside club with five wins from their last six games and no defeat in 14. Divock Origi scored against Sunderland last time out, and the Belgian striker is expected to lead the line again this week for Liverpool. Origi is 5/6 to score with bet365, while fellow striker Daniel Sturridge is just 4/6 to get on the scoresheet.
Leeds are another side in form, with the Championship outfit also recording five wins from their last six outings. Of those wins was a penalty shoot-out win over Norwich City in the last round of the Cup, with a late goal from Chris Wood keeping them in the tie and ultimately winning it for the Yorkshire club. A 2-1 win over Bristol City last weekend in the league wont do Garry Monk’s side any harm, and leaves them looking for a historic win over Liverpool and a place in the semi-finals of the competition. Wood is just 13/5 to score this week with bet365, while fellow striker Marcus Antonsson is 15/4.
Back Liverpool to win 3-1 and Origi to score this week at 13/1 with bet365.
A safer bet lies with Liverpool to win by two goals at 3/1.
