Paddy’s feeling extra generous this week and giving everyone a FREE £/€5 Bet Builder on Sunday afternoon’s clash between Leeds and Liverpool at Elland Road.
And, as if that wasn’t great enough, he’s also got one of his top football traders, Brian McDonnell to break down the numbers and suggest a few punts you might include in your free fiver punt.
Take it away….
Both teams to score has clicked in each of Leeds’ three league games this season and both fixtures between these sides last season ended in both teams scoring with nine goals across the two games. Liverpool will be without their Brazilian contingent including Allison in the nets who will be a big loss. Caoimhin Kelleher is expected to come in and even though he is a bright prospect, he won’t be as secure as Allison so I expect him to be tested with potshots from distance by Leeds and expect them to score.
One player who may benefit from the absence of Liverpool’s Brazilian trio is Diogo Jota. He’s averaged 3.5 shots per game in the three Premier League games this season even after being substituted in each game by Roberto Firmino. With Firmino not being available for this one, Jota is likely to play the 90 minutes and will be letting fly from distance and getting on the end of crosses – expect two of them to the trouble Meslier in the Leeds goal!
Liverpool’s corner count this season has been 11, 8 and 12. They love getting the ball out to their overlapping full-backs whose crosses can often get deflected behind for corners. Salah, Mane & Jota will also be getting shots on goal which will be deflected or saved out for corners.
To round off the bet builder I’m going with Leeds to pick up at least 2 cards. Leeds attacking style of play tends to allow them to be vulnerable to counterattacks, which means committing cynical fouls at any stage of the game. They’ve already picked up 7 yellow cards this season and also picked up 2 in this same fixture back in April.
- Both teams to score – Yes
- Diogo Jota to have 2 or more shots on target
- Away total corners – Over 5.5
- Home team total cards – Over 1.5
