Reasons for betting on Liverpool vs Burnley tip
Liverpool is coming back from European challenges, and they’re going to meet with Burnley. Jurgen Klopp and his boys have to put down 3 points in this match after disastrous few days. Burnley meanwhile, is looking solid at the moment as they have only one defeat since the start of the season. The home team often produced negative surprises against clubs which are not very attractive. That needs to be a warning for the Reds.
It is now official Liverpool has a below average defense. Mistakes produced in the back line of this team are ruining everything good built up front. Jurgen Klopp clearly missed several excellent opportunities to strengthen this part of the team, and now Liverpool is paying the price for it. Against Seville this Wednesday, they allowed two easy goals. And in the situation when your team is playing well this comes as a shocker.
Besides lousy defense, there is one other sure thing when Liverpool plays, and those are goals. Metting with Seville was the 4 straight event in which we saw over 3.5 goals. It is something which never lacks in Reds games. Only one competitive match they played this season didn’t saw 3 or more goals. Sadio Mane will be out for this match because of a suspension after his brutal start on Manchester City goalkeeper.
After the start of the season, as we said Burnley has only one defeat. Sean Dyche made a strong team who isn’t afraid to stand up against much stronger opponents. The Clarets surprised Chelsea, and snapped one point at Wembley against Tottenham Hotspurs. Currently, they are in the 7th place or the Premier League with two victories and draw and defeat a piece. Also, they forwarded to the next stage of English Football League Cup after eliminating Blackburn Rovers away from home 0-2. All the matches except for the one with Chelsea at the opening of the season ended with two or fewer goals. This clearly indicates that the Clarets like to play defensive, hard matches. Nahki Wells is still on the injury list, and Jeff Hendricks should be in the combination for this event. Injured Tom Heaton is still being assessed, and the condition of excellent goalkeeper is unknown.
Head to head the matches
During the previous season, Liverpool and Burnley had one win apiece in head-to-head encounters. The Clarets were better at Turf Moor with 2-0.
On the other hand, Liverpool was victorious at Anfield Road with 2-1. In the previous 6 games, Liverpool has 5 triumphs, and the same number of matches ended with both teams not to score.
Prediction for Liverpool vs Burnley tip
There is nothing to think about here, Liverpool needs to win. It will be a hard task because they Burnley knows how to defend, but anyway, the Reds simply need to put down three points.
For the second bet, we would go with the tradition, which means Liverpool to win and keep clean sheets.
