Liverpool vs Manchester United – Statistical Bet Prediction


  1. This is such a mouth-watering tie and really this competition could be the only way for either of these teams to participate in next year’s Champions League! It’s going to be to be a special night at Anfield and I’m very much looking forward to this one. I just have a feeling that home field advantage is going to be key in this match-up and Liverpool will just shade it. The Reds are slight favorites from some of the bookies and the KOP are going to demand a huge result against the old enemy. 2-1 for Liverpool but United to get an all important away goal.

  2. basing on their current form and a home advantage.,liverpool are going for a win against man u,who haven’t had a good record on away matches.,i take it on 2-1 win fo liverpool..
