Burton vs Liverpool Preview

Championship newcomers Burton host Liverpool in the EFL Cup at the Pirelli Stadium, and all the fans, players and manager Nigel Clough have been looking forward to ever since the draw was made. The Brewers have made a steady start to their league campaign with four points from four games. Many predict them to struggle after two successive promotions, but Burton’s fans and players have a confident attitude towards the season which looks like putting them in a competitive position in each game.


They’ve been one of the teams to watch this season already scoring nine and conceding nine in those league games, which is strange as in their previous two seasons they’d relied on a steady defence as goals were at a premium. They have a promising young player called Hamza Choudhury who they signed from Leicester who looks a good player, as well as midfielder Tom Naylor who’s already grabbed three goals from midfield already this season.


Liverpool have had a mixed start to their Premier League campaign. Though only two games in, they’ve already shown the inconsistency that has blighted them for some time now. An impressive away display at the Emirates beating Arsenal 4-3 was followed up by a tame 2-0 defeat at Burnley on the weekend. The stats say they dominated the game, but there was no real penetration at all in the game despite having 80% of the ball, and most of their shots were from 25 yards or more.


Jurgen Klopp will probably have a little more pressure on this result due to the weekend, and although he will change the side around, I think he’ll still play a strong XI as he cannot afford another poor result just three days after the Burnley game so it's hard to see anytime but a Liverpool win for my football betting tips. They do miss Sadio Mane after he impressed in pre-season and at Arsenal, but they’ll be glad Daniel Sturridge is back in contention again.


Burton vs Liverpool Predictions


My first betting tip for Burton vs Liverpool is going to be Liverpool to be winning at half-time and full time. They’re a little short (4/7) to go straight for the win market, but in all seriousness, I cannot see Burton being able to keep out Liverpool’s attack for very long. I see an early goal being scored to settle Liverpool into the game and then it could be three or four nil. Coral are offering 21/20 for Liverpool to be winning halftime/fulltime.

My second Burton vs Liverpool prediction is going to be Liverpool to keep a clean sheet. Klopp will be working hard on his defence as it seems lapses in concentration cost them at Turf Moor, and he’ll want to rectify that. A clean sheet here will do the team’s confidence no harm. In the Burton vs Liverpool betting odds, Coral are offering 11/10 for Liverpool to keep a clean sheet.


First Goalscorer Prediction

My final football prediction for Tuesday night’s EFL clash is going to be Divock Origi to score first. It’s a little risky as Klopp may not have him in the Liverpool starting 11, but he really should do as he was on fire in the latter half of last season. His pace will frighten the Burton defence and if he starts he should be expecting to at least score one, which will boost his chances of being considered for a start against Spurs next weekend. The best odds for our first goalscorer tip in Burton vs Liverpool are 9/2 with Coral for Origi to score first.
