Liverpool, after a break for the world champion, has already played two games, and in both of them Jurgen Klopp’s team looked very bright, despite the guest defeat in the 1/8 final of the League Cup in Manchester City (2: 3) . Then, on matchday 17 of the Premier League, the strong Aston Villa Unai Emery could not oppose anything to the Reds, who took three points from him (3-1) thanks to goals from Salah (Mo scored in Manchester), van Dijk and Baycetic. Liverpool outplayed the opponent in the attacking game, easily opened a tight defense, and deservedly won.
However, in order to solve the number one problem in the Premier League – to get a place in the Champions League – the “Merseysiders” will have to work hard to regain the gap to the top four. While the Reds are sixth, 5 points separate them from Tottenham, which closes the first four (on losses – 2). So Klopp has no right to fail with the middle peasants. He is bound to beat Leicester, especially considering that the opponent is clearly not in the best of shape.

The experts of the Tennisi.bet bookmaker have little doubt that the hosts will win, offering a bet on such a result with a coefficient of 1.33 (Leicester’s victory is 8.20). This arrangement is quite understandable. The Foxes’ last victory over Liverpool on home soil occurred in May 2000. In addition, Brendan Rodgers’ team had a dismal home game against Newcastle (0-3) on Monday. The locals conceded all three goals in the first half (two for the eighth minute), things were not going well in attack, and at half-time the doubt of the winner was removed.
Ahead of the 2022 World Cup break, it looked like Leicester were beginning to recover from a poor start, but downtime has taken its toll on them. The main scourge of the “foxes” is the defensive game, according to this indicator, they are fourth in the league from the end – 28 goals in 16 matches. In addition, 19 goals were conceded in eight away games, an average of 2,375 per game. In this regard, it’s worth taking a closer look at Liverpool’s total bet on 2.5 for 2.07. For those who like to take risks, you can make it higher: more than 3 for 3.04. Salah and co are now in good shape.
At the same time, Leicester often scores against Liverpool on the road, and the Foxes’ goal drought is not a given that will stretch for two games. Both scores go for 1.74, very attractive numbers. The matches of these teams are usually interesting and productive, so you can also play the bet on the total of the match more than 3 for 1.73.
