Liverpool To Nil Never Tempts
Liverpool are expected to cruise to Champions League victory tonight. They should win but why would it be that easy?
Liverpool are heavily odds-on with every firm to beat Maribor to nil but the much improved price of 11/5 on the Reds winning with both teams to score is worth taking with Boyleports.
First of all, we all know how Klopp’s side struggle for clean sheets. Before Jose Mourinho parked the bus on Saturday, the Merseysiders hadn’t shutout any opponents for seven matches across all competitions.
Furthermore, there is no evidence that the Slovenians are hopelessly outclassed in Group E. They drew 1-1 with Sparak Moscow, the same result Liverpool achieved against the Russians.
Loris Karius returns in goal for Klopp but this rotation policy shows no signs of helping the clean sheet shortage. Expect the hosts to have a moment in one of the biggest games in their history.
