Liverpool vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

International Champions Cup 2018

Liverpool vs Borussia Dortmund predictions and betting tips for the International Champions Cup match this weekend. The match takes place at 9pm on Sunday 22nd July UK time so could be a hot betting heat.

Liverpool face German heavyweights Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup this weekend, in a fixture that Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is sure to be looking forward to. Both sides will be missing a number of their key men following the World Cup’s recent conclusion, but there’s still plenty for us to get our teeth into!

Reasons for our Liverpool vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions

Although you can never read too much into pre-season games, one thing you can be sure of is that a Jurgen Klopp team will attack. Liverpool established a reputation for playing gung-ho football last season and we see no reason why that wouldn’t apply to friendlies. What let Liverpool down last campaign was their propensity to concede – which is annoying if you’re a Reds fan but great if you’re backing both teams to score! We’ll be on board that market here to start our Liverpool vs Borussia Dortmund predictions.

There’s no doubt we saw a marked improvement in Liverpool last season, substantiated by the fact they are currently second favourites in the Premier League winner betting odds. Dortmund, on the other hand, finished fourth in the Bundesliga and have since lost manager Thomas Tuchel to PSG. Der BVB are far from the force of old – routinely challenging and even bettering historically rampant Bayern Munich. In a competitive fixture, I’d expect the current Liverpool team to comfortably see Dortmund off, and will be applying that logic here. Backing the Merseysiders to win by a -1 handicap is 59/20 with 888Sport, and is a must-feature as far as my Liverpool vs Borussia Dortmund betting tips are concerned.

The chances of my first two International Champions Cup betting tips landing are greatly amplified with each goal scored – and I can’t see this one being a low scoring affair. Although not positively indicative of how this game will pan out, it’s worth recalling the outcome the last time these two played. Liverpool edged out Dortmund in 4-3 thriller, which saw self-proclaimed ‘world-class’ defender Dejan Lovren score the winner. A repeat result would see my third and final Liverpool vs Borussia Dortmund predictions absolutely sail in – and that’s that there will be more than 3.5 goals in 90 minutes.

Liverpool vs Borussia Dortmund Recommended Bets & Odds

There’s always an element of surprise as far as friendlies are concerned and that gives bookies some real head-scratchers when it comes to pricing the games up! William Hill currently offer the best odds on a Liverpool win, at 23/20, with a Dortmund victory 2/1 and a stalemate backable at 12/5. If you see things differently to me and think this could be a bit of an anti-climax, then perhaps the 6/4 on under 2.5 goals may tempt?

Liverpool Key Player

Plagued by injury for much of the previous campaign, Adam Lallana’s recent return to first-team action will be a welcome boost to Reds fans and players alike. The diminutive 30-year-old has scored 17 goals in exactly 100 league games for Liverpool and will be keen to boost his tally from August. We think he could have a big say on proceedings here, particularly as he’s an absolute certainly to get some minutes.

Borussia Dortmund Key Player

Mario Gotze’s absence from Germany’s World Cup squad is a sad indictment for the sheer contrast between his summer this year, and the one he so famously enjoyed in 2014. Scorer of the only goal in his country’s most recently World Cup success, the attacking midfielder has almost disappeared into obscurity since. He did feature on 23 occasions for the Black and Yellows last season, however, and will be an obvious threat to Liverpool should he be granted a welcome pre-season outing.
