Liverpool v Spartak Moscow Betting Tips Explained

This would have been a dead rubber for Liverpool had it not been for a second-half collapse in Sevilla a fortnight ago. The Reds needed just two minutes to take the lead at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and by the half-an-hour mark they were three goals up and cruising, but Sevilla responded in emphatic fashion after the break with a couple of goals inside the first 15 minutes, and their fantastic fightback was completed when Guido Pizzarro struck three minutes into added time.

Jurgen Klopp described the miserable second 45 minutes as a “misjudgement” and pundits accused the players of taking their foot off the pedal thinking the game was wrapped up at 3-0. Whatever it was, it was an embarrassing night for a Liverpool team that had looked a cut above the Spanish side during the first 45 minutes, and it means they must now take something from their Matchday Six clash with Spartak Moscow to stay in the Champions League.

They do appear more than capable of doing that though. The Reds have bounced back from that disappointing result in Spain by following up a draw against Chelsea with convincing wins at Stoke City and Brighton & Hove Albion, and they should now make it three wins on the bounce when they entertain Spartak on Wednesday night.

Klopp’s men have not lost a competitive home game so far this season, winning seven and drawing four, and in the Champions League only Sevilla have managed to take something from a trip to Anfield. They should be too strong for the visitors, but do not be shocked if Spartak Moscow do give their supporters something to cheer by finding the back of the net.

Liverpool’s only clean sheets in this competition so far have come at the expense of group whipping boys Maribor, while they have managed to blank the opposition just eight times in their 23 competitive games this season. But of course, they are prolific at the other end to make up for that deficiency, so Liverpool winning a match in which both teams score has been a recurring theme this season – one we could see continue on Wednesday night.

And when it comes to goals, you have to like the chances of Mohamed Salah finding the back of the net here. The Egyptian striker has proved to be an outstanding summer signing so far, scoring 11 goals in his last 11 games in all competitions while 17 across the season so far. Salah has netted in each of his last three home games, scoring four goals in total, so there is very good chance that he will make it five goals in four outings at Anfield on Wednesday night.
