Liverpool vs Maribor
UEFA Champions League
Date: 1st November 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Liverpool got their Champions League campaign back on track by trashing the Slovenian champions Maribor 0-7 on the road two weeks ago.
The Reds are now at the top of the Group E standings, but level on points with Spartak Moscow and only a single point above Sevilla in third.
Having in mind that Jurgen Klopp’s side still has a trip to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the fifth round of the competition, the another victory over the group’s underdogs is absolutely a must for the English outfit here.
The weekend’s 3-0 thumping of the recently-promoted Huddersfield Town (goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum) fixed the atmosphere in the dressing room after a horrendous 4-1 loss to Spurs at Wembley.
The Slovenians could just not do much to prevent the disaster at their Ljudski vrt stadium two weeks ago.
This level of the competition is too strong for them at the moment, but Darko Milanic can still be proud of the fact he led Maribor to the group stage of the competition where they have already left mark by holding Spartak Moscow to a 1-1 draw in the first round.
Liverpool vs Maribor: Head to head
It was entirely a one-way street for the Reds two weeks ago at Ljudski vrt.
Roberto Firmino broke the deadlock four minutes in the game, Mohamed Salah notched a brace, while Philippe Coutinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alexander-Arnold also got their names to the scoresheet later on.
Liverpool vs Maribor: Prediction
Liv’pool have a tough away clash at West Ham United on Saturday which is why we don’t expect them to push hard in order to fill Maribor’s net to the max here.,
The home win should not come in question, but we see the value in backing the Slovenians not to lose by four or more goals at the odds of 1.98.
Liverpool vs Maribor: Bets
The first pick is Maribor +3.5 handicap at the odds of 1.98.
You can also back Liverpool Under 3.5 Team Goals at 2.20.
