In the English League Cup quarterfinals, Liverpool played against Preston North End. In the first half, Jurgen Klopp’s side failed to score. After the break, the Reds scored twice. As for the clubs’ form in the Premier League, the Reds failed to extend their winning streak to seven games last week. Liverpool shared points with Tottenham in the English capital, ending 2-2.
In the previous round of the English League Cup, Leicester City played at home against Brighton. Brendan Rodger’s charges took the lead twice in this encounter but failed to hold on to their advantage. Everything was decided in the penalty shoot-out. Leicester missed the final weekend of the EFL due to a coronavirus infection in several main squad members.
In the previous EFL season, the clubs exchanged victories at their respective arenas. The scoreline was 3-0 at Anfield and 3-1 at King Power. In total, the clubs met in 116 matches. In terms of victories, the Reds were ahead, 51-40.
Expert Betting Tips
Leicester City’s last match was on 12 December. Since then, Liverpool managed to play two EPL games - a 3-1 win over Newcastle United and a 2-2 draw with Tottenham. Merseyside manager Jurgen Klopp will make some changes to the starting line-up. Let’s not forget that there is still a boxing day ahead with a crazy schedule. “Rested” Leicester players can create many problems for the home team. Given the factors listed above, I don’t rule out the possibility of a sensation at Anfield. I suggest considering the following betting options for the upcoming game:
- Leicester to score in the first half for 2.25;
- Both teams to score and Total Over (2.5) goals for 1.90;
- Individual Total 2 Over (1.5) goals for 2.83.
