Tottenham v Liverpool Betting Tips
It’s already been a week to remember for Tottenham and Liverpool.
Tottenham secured their first ever points against Real Madrid thanks to a 1-1 draw in the Bernabeu on Tuesday and it could easily have been even better for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
On the same night, Liverpool broke their record away win in the Champions League with a 7-0 thrashing of Maribor in Slovenia.
Both sets of players and fans are in good spirits on the back of those results which set up their meeting at Wembley Stadium on Sunday very nicely indeed.
High-Quality Attackers to Put on a Show
It’s been a wonderful couple of years for Tottenham since Pochettino took over at the club. They’ve gone from a side with potential to competing alongside the very best teams in the world.
Spurs’ young, hugely talented squad is only going to improve over the years (providing the club can keep hold of the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli) and they are already one of the most fearsome attacking units in England.
Liverpool could also be described as fearsome going forwards. Yes, Jurgen Klopp’s team need to improve on their consistency but they’ve already shown how dangerous they are multiple times this season.
Liverpool are especially potent when given space to operate in. They’ll certainly get that at Wembley Stadium so we fully expect them to score a goal or two.
We also fully expect Spurs to get on the scoresheet given the combination of their attacking talent with a Liverpool defence which is far from solid.
You can capitalise on a high scoring game by betting on over 3.5 goals at a best price of 7/4 with 888Sport.
A Draw Most Likely with Two Sides Who Are Tough to Beat
Liverpool fans took instantly to Jurgen Klopp when he arrived on Merseyside but two years on and some have called for the German to be sacked.
The main concern about Klopp is that Liverpool have repeated the same mistakes time and time again in defence. There is clearly room for improvement at the back but Klopp can rightly point to the fact that his team have only lost once all season and that was against table toppers, Manchester City.
Tottenham, too, have only been beaten once so far this season.
Everybody in football knows that they’ve had their problems at Wembley Stadium (their league record in their temporary home is W1, D2, L1) but they’re getting more comfortable by the match and have dispelled all talk of a curse.
This is a huge opportunity for both teams to secure a big win against a top four rival but we think they’ll both have to settle for a draw which looks the value option in the match odds market at 13/5 with Betfair.
For a bigger payout from a draw, it could be worth having a small stake bet on the 2-2 correct score which Coral go 14/1 about.
Two Picks from a High-Class List of Potential Goalscorers
Harry Kane has got used to being cast in the role of Tottenham hero but he missed his chance to win the game for Spurs at the Bernabeu.
He said after the game that he did everything right but a player of his competitive nature and quality will be desperate to return to scoring ways as soon as possible so back Kane to score first at 3/1 with William Hill.
Of the Liverpool options to score, we like the 11/2 that Unibet are quoting about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The ex-Arsenal midfielder would love to silence the Spurs fans and after bagging his first Liverpool goal against Maribor, he could well come off the bench to make the most of Tottenham’s tired legs at Wembley.
