Liverpool vs Huddersfield
English Premier League
Date: Friday, 26 April 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Top of the table meets the very bottom on Friday as Liverpool are looking to snatch an easy three-pointer against the already-relegated Huddersfield Town side in 36th round of the Premier League. It should really be a one-way street for the Reds who head into the fixture as massive favourites.
Jurgen Klopp’s men won nine on the spin across competitions coming into this tie. They bagged at least two goals in each of these nine affairs and we definitely expect them to keep such fantastic attacking form going against the weakest opposition in the division.
The Terriers had a disappointing campaign which saw them snatch no more than 14 points in 35 games so far. They lost 12 of past 13 league outings and we just can’t imagine the scenario in which they would cause any troubles for title hopefuls here.
Liverpool vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head
These two sides met each other just three times in recent history.
Liverpool won each of these games without conceding a single goal in the process (7-0 goal difference).
This term’s meeting saw the Reds claim a narrow 0-1 victory away at The John Smith’s Stadium.
Liverpool vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Klopp’s troops are looking ahead of Barcelona fixture in the Champions League semi-final next week. This is why the hosts will want to finish the job here as soon as possible to have room to give some rest to their main stars in the second half.
Huddersfield have by far the weakest attacking record in the entire league. They scored only 20 goals in 35 outings. They failed to find the back of the net in eight of last nine away games in all competitions. This is why we have to fancy Liverpool to keep a clean sheet at 1.61 odds.
You can also back the Reds to have at least a two-goal lead at the half time at sky-high 2.10 odds. It is a must-take bet based on everything written above.
