Liverpool v Huddersfield Betting Preview, Odds & Tips
- Date: 26/04/19
- Time: 20:00
- Venue: Anfield
- Channel: Sky Sports
With Liverpool a point behind and three games to play, winning all of their remaining three and one slip up from City and the title is once again theirs after almost 20 years of being bequeathed from it and are now 3/1 with Coral to bag the title
Huddersfield, although getting off to a pleasing start have not really been at the races this season, but did get promotion last season with a negative goal difference, so the first impressions from the previous campaign were not hopeful. With nothing really to play for could make the visitors cherish their remaining time in the Premier division. Betfair put them in the top five of the record breaking the 50/1 for a pre match price and Liverpool no bigger than 1/100 to not lose the match, making this as near to a 100% probability they wont lose with Coral rating Liverpool’s chances of not losing at 1/1000 in rare domestic league pre-match pricing.
Liverpool are bound to make several changes in the anticipation of Barcelona next week, but Joe Gomez could get a start in lieu of Joel Matip resting for the Semi-Final of the Champions League next week.
Fabinho may not feature after his early substitution in their last outing.
Huddersfield have injury concerns with Jonas Lössl is in goal as regular Hamer is out with a suspected injury
Huddersfield are bound to set up a defensive style on the assumption they have accepted that possession might be at a premium, so holding off the attack as long as possible is the likely game plan.
Potential Liverpool Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Mane, Firmino and Salah
Potential Huddersfield Starting XI: Lossi, Smith, Schindler, Kongolo, Durm, Hadergjonaj, Mooy, Stankovic, Bacuna, Lowe and Mounie
Head To Head
- Liverpool 4-0-0 (Last four)
Key Stats & Facts
- Liverpool’s last four meetings with Huddersfield have all been won to nil with the visitors losing all of the last seven matches.
- Huddersfield have netted in just one of their last eight on the road, with the home side netting two or more in nine of the last ten at Anfield.
- Huddersfield have conceded at least two goals in their last six league games.
- Liverpool – 1/12 BetVictor
- Draw – 5/1 Betfair
- Huddersfield – 50/1 Betfair
I do think Liverpool to win without conceding is a runner at 8/13 from match odds of 1/12. Punters may prefer the Liverpool/both to score at 15/8 with Betway under the assumption the KOP will be weakened down ahead of the Champions League. However, Klopp will need to name his starting XI on the basis that they need to get over the line for the three points, but not be complacent at the same time.
The visitors will set up to defend, and odds compilers are as confident Liverpool won’t lose the match, they offer a near certainty to a 100% probability you are likely to see.
Liverpool weakening down could be made to work hard, but should get over the line. The Saturday newspapers will be all over this If Huddersfield were to spoil the day and the title. However, with Huddersfield’s respectability, for Liverpool to win and under 4.5 goals at 4/5 is surprising, as with a weakened line up, they are unlikely to thrash a self-respecting side. It is worth nothing Liverpool games at home have gone over 4.5 in 3/17 at Anfield. In the 17 on the road for the visiting side, just four have gone five or more goals.
The odds compilers see a potential mauling here, but Liverpool will be smart and Huddersfield will be objective making the 4/5 odds almost generous and a max stake bet!
