Man City vs Liverpool Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

International Champions Cup 2018

Man City vs Liverpool predictions and betting tips for the International Champions Cup match, taking place in the early hours of Thursday morning in the UK. These two will do battle for the Premier League title, but who will win this friendly?

Both of these teams have already played Borussia Dortmund in this summer’s International Champions Cup, and both lost. Manchester City went down 1-0 and Liverpool lost 3-1, partly due to yet another Karius error. Neither of the Premier League teams have their big players in America yet with the likes of Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero still on holiday from the World Cup. New Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson will not make his debut until 4th August.

Reasons for our Man City vs Liverpool Predictions

Manchester City played almost all youngsters in their opening ICC match and given that they only have a few first team players in their squad for the tour, we can expect a similar line-up against Liverpool. Leroy Sane is expected to start after playing just 17 minutes in their first match and Riyad Mahrez should also play. The odds for both teams to score are only 1/2 but we are predicting goals here. The odds for over 3.5 goals in this match are 6/4 with bet365 and that’s the first of today’s Man City vs Liverpool predictions in this International Champions Cup friendly.

Liverpool are expected to play a stronger starting line-up that Manchester City here with the likes of Keita, Robertson, Clyne, Lallana and Fabinho all expected to start or at least play a major part. This means they could have too much for a young Man City team and win this match. The 3-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund might have been a slight concern for Jurgen Klopp but realistically he’s just wanting to get fitness into his players. However, we’re betting on Liverpool to win and BTTS for the second of the day’s Man City vs Liverpool betting tips. The odds for this are 9/4 with bet365.

The final selection we’re going for here is one of our correct score predictions and the bet to place is a big odds punt. We’re expecting goals and given it is only a pre-season friendly, anything could happen. The last of our Man City vs Liverpool predictions is for Liverpool to win 3-2 and the odds for the bet are 18/1 at bet365. This is definitely a football bet worthy of a small stake to keep the match interesting.

Man City vs Liverpool Recommended Bets and Odds

As is the way with friendlies, we are more restricted with what bets the bookmakers have priced up, however Liverpool are favourites to win the match at 10/11 with bet365, the draw is 13/5 and Man City will be a tempting bet for some people at 14/5. If you think Man City will avoid defeat then you should be taking the 4/5 for Manchester City to win OR draw the match. Over 2.5 would be our banker bet but the odds for that are only 1/2 so it’s a bit short in the betting.

 

Man City Key Player vs Liverpool

Leroy Sane was left out of the Germany World Cup squad, a decision that seems ridiculous following their group stage exit, but he will be key to City’s chances in all the major competitions this season. He came off the bench against Dortmund but will likely be in the Man City starting line-up here and can cause the Liverpool defence problems with his pace.

Liverpool Key Player vs Man City

It is still early days for new signing Naby Keita but he already looks like he’ll be a star in the Premier League this season. His box to box play caught the eye in recent friendlies and looks set to be the linchpin of this new Jurgen Klopp built midfield. Fabinho will be his partner as the season gets underway but Keita could be the star man.
