Lincoln City vs Liverpool
English Carabao Cup
Date: Thursday, 24 September 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: LNER Stadium, Lincoln.
It seems like that losing Community Shield trophy to Arsenal had zero effect on Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
The reigning Premier League champions have started the new campaign with two straight victories against Leeds United and Chelsea FC, and now looking to climb up the ladder when it comes to EFL Cup too.
Third round opponent Lincoln City shouldn’t represent a big threat, even if Klopp decides to completely change the main roster and rest some of key players. The odds on away win are at 1.21 rate at the moment.
Lincoln City vs Liverpool Head-to-head
There were no previous head to head meetings between Lincoln City and Liverpool FC, not even in friendly pre-season matches.
Lincoln City vs Liverpool Prediction
Some of you readers might remember an astonishing run Lincoln City had in the FA Cup in 2017, eliminating a lot of big names and reaching the quarter finals. Their fairy tale was ended by Arsenal in London.
At the moment, they are competing in League One with a lot of success, sharing the first spot on the table with Ipswich Town and Hull City with 100% win rate. They were victorious against Oxford United 2-0 and MK Dons 2-1 so far.
When it comes to EFL Cup campaign, Lincoln eliminated Bradford city quite convincingly 5-0.
The Reds have just signed two big players – Jota from Wolverhampton Wanderers and Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see them start this match, just to start building chemistry with rest of the squad. Liverpool had a rough match against Chelsea FC on Sunday.
One man advantage they had from 45th minute made a huge difference – they have conquered Stamford Bridge 2-0 thanks to the goals of Sadio Mane.
Back line improved significantly in comparison to the premiere match against Leeds United where they conceded three goals.
We don’t think Lincoln are in position to represent a threat to the champions at this point. We feel that Away win HT and FT at 1.65 is the safest approach to the match, while Liverpool score in both halves is also a decent alternative.
