Wednesday Night Football Tips: 32/1 – Liverpool v Atletico Madrid Bet Builder Tip & Stats

Liverpool predictions and betting tips

Champions League football returns this week and there is an interesting looking tie at Anfield, as Liverpool host Spanish champions, Atletico Madrid.

We have gone through the stats to pick out a bet builder tip for this match, which kicks-off at 8pm.

Liverpool sit top of Group B thanks to three straight wins and have a five-point cushion over the team in second place, Atletico Madrid. These sides met two weeks ago and produced a 3-2 thriller, with the Reds coming out on top.

Victory for Liverpool would confirm their qualification for the knockout stages, but they need to produce a better display than that on Saturday, when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Brighton.

Atletico are level on points with FC Porto in the race for the runners-up spot, but they did enjoy a 3-0 win over Betis at the weekend, so will come into this game with some confidence.

Over 2.5 goals

Many thought the game at the Wanda Metropolitano two weeks ago would be a tight affair, so for these teams to produce five goals means we should have another thriller on our hands at Anfield. In Liverpool’s last nine games in all competitions, over 2.5 goals have been scored, whilst Atletico’s last four games have yielded over 2.5 goals.

 

Mo Salah anytime goalscorer

The Premier League’s top goal scorer with 10, Mo Salah has also bagged five goals in this season’s Champions League and has scored in every game in the competition so far, including two against Atletico a fortnight ago. He is in a rich vein of form and will surely get on the score sheet again.

 

Sadio Mane anytime goalscorer

Although Sadio Mane has only scored one goal in the Champions League this campaign, he has still scored six in the Premier League, including one against Brighton on Saturday. That will have boosted his confidence and he can get on the score sheet again in this one.

 

Luis Suarez to have 2 or more shots on target

Luis Suarez came off the bench in the previous game with Liverpool but failed to make any impact against his old club in the 10 minutes he was given. However, with Antoine Griezmann suspended following his sending off against the Reds two weeks, Suarez is expected to start and will be desperate to score on his return to Anfield. He could be the visitors main threat and can make Alisson a busy man.

 

Over 10.5 corners

Liverpool’s style of play often leads to corners and we can see 10+ in this game. They like to get it wide to their full-backs who whip in quick crosses, often with defenders struggling to turn them away – and when they do, it is usually at the expense of a corner.
