Liverpool v PSG Betting Offers & Betting Tips – 18th September 2018
Some people believe that the group stages of the Champions League is getting a little too predictable and stale.
It’s always going to be tough for the early stages to match the intensity and the drama of the knockout rounds but the draw for this year’s Champions League has thrown up some mouth watering games.
Liverpool’s third ever meeting with PSG on the first night of the tournament proper is very much among those exciting games.
Both teams have won their first five matches of the domestic season and so will head into the match with a huge amount of confidence which should result in a thrilling match under the lights at Anfield.
Spoils Set to be Shared in This Potential Classic
The relief was plain to be seen on Jurgen Klopp’s face when the final whistle was blown at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Liverpool had dominated the vast majority of their 2-1 win over Tottenham but the end of the match was much more tense than it should have been.
Liverpool broke through the Tottenham defence several times and had a lot of chances but rarely did they pick out the right pass. Klopp’s frustration boiled over more than once on the touchline as he screamed at both Mohaem Salah and Sadio Mané to get their head up and pick a pass rather than taking on shots from difficult angles.
The Reds cannot afford to be as sloppy in front of goal on Tuesday night as you can be sure that PSG will make the most of their opportunities.
The Parisians are desperate to take their domestic success to the continent and would love the chance to prove their credentials by securing all three points against last season’s beaten finalists.
We think the attacking quality of both teams should ensure that this is a very close match and therefore suggest betting on the draw which is 14/5 with bet365.
Goals a Certainty at Anfield
Liverpool have shown themselves to be a very strong cup side under the Klopp’s stewardship. The former Mainz and Borussia Dortmund manager is trying to make Liverpool more consistent so they can put together a title challenge but that does take anything away from their ability to play attacking cup football.
PSG also only know one way to play – going on the front foot and looking for goals. At thebookiesoffers.co.uk we think this could be the most entertaining match of the first round of fixtures in the Champions League so we’re adding over 3.5 goals at 5/4 with Betfair to our Liverpool v PSG betting tips.
As we believe this is going to be a high scoring game which ends with a point for each team, a bet on the 2-2 correct score could well be a smart play at generous odds of 10/1 with Ladbrokes.
Milner to Have an Action Packed Evening
When James Milner signed for Liverpool few people thought that he would be such an important player for so long, especially given the amount of money that Klopp has been able to spend on new recruits.
Milner’s versatility and work rate makes him a favourite of Klopp’s and he should get the nod to start against PSG. If he does, we think he could be involved in the heat of the action.
Milner will take no prisoners which may not go down well with the European referees who don’t usually take too kindly to tough tackling. He’s also the Liverpool penalty taker which throws up the prospect of two bets – one on Milner to be shown a card at 7/2 with Unibet and another on him scoring anytime at 11/2 with William Hill.
