Liverpool v Manchester United betting tips – low-scoring game on cards

Posted on: 12th December 2018

Liverpool cut it fine in terms of qualifying for the Champions League last sixteen, although a 1-0 win over Napoli saw the Reds go through at the expense of their Italian opponents.

Jurgen Klopp’s side must now recover quickly before they clash with Manchester United on Sunday, with Liverpool not having a strong track record when it comes to hosting the Red Devils.

In the past four seasons, Liverpool have failed to beat these opponents at Anfield and it’s hard to get excited about the 4/7 about the home side triumphing even if they are vastly superior to their arch-rivals this term.

Not that Manchester United are a tempting prospect at 5/1 either, even if Jose Mourinho has engineered several wins at Anfield in the past, including the Chelsea victory that saw Steven Gerrard make “that” slip.

We’re surprised that Under 2.5 Goals is trading at odds-against considering the last two clashes between these sides have seen a goalless draw, with United surely going to Anfield and attempting to park the bus.

Everyone was predicting goals on Tuesday night when Liverpool met Napoli and just one was scored, with the visitors looking to nullify their opponents and calm the game down as quickly as possible.

Even if Liverpool do force a breakthrough, we can be fairly confident they will keep United at bay and win the game by a 1-0 or 2-0 scoreline, so we’re happy to go with this particular bet.
