Liverpool v PSG Betting Tips – 18th September 2018
It’s safe to say that the start of the season has gone very well for Liverpool and PSG. Both sides head into the first match of their Champions League campaign on the back of five straight league wins and hopes are high among neutrals the high levels of confidence will help produce a classic under the lights at Anfield.
Spoils Set to be Shared in a High Scoring Match
Liverpool were the story of the Champions League last season. Jurgen Klopp’s men set the tournament alight with some world class attacking play thanks largely to the exploits of their front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino but they did have their problems in defence.
The fact that the Reds are capable of scoring multiple goals against any opposition made them the perfect cup team which they proved by making it all the way to the final. Klopp’s task this season is to make Liverpool more consistent and solid in defence so that they can make a genuine push for the Premier League title whilst also launching another assault on the Champions League.
It’s a little different for PSG’s new manager, Thomas Tuchel. The Parisians are expected to dominate domestic football but that is no longer enough for their ambitious owners. PSG have been targeting success in the Champions League for some time now and Tuchel is the latest man to be tasked with guiding them through to the latter stages at least.
The two managers will doubtless have a long chat about the different expectations and pressures they’re under after the match. Tuchel succeeded Klopp as Borussia Dortmund manager and they pair have a good relationship.
It was Klopp who came out on top when Liverpool knocked out Tuchel’s Dortmund team in the Europa League a couple of seasons ago but this time around we think both managers will have to settle for a point.
The amount of attacking talent set to take to the pitch at Anfield is nothing short of staggering. Both teams have enough about them to win the game but we would not be surprised if they ended cancelling each other out in a thrilling Champions League tie.
Therefore, our main Liverpool v PSG betting tip is on the draw at $3.70 with Pointsbet.
For those of you looking for a bigger payout from a riskier bet, the 2-2 correct score could prove to be too tempting at odds of $11 with Neds.
Goals a Given with These Two
PSG have already scored 17 goals in their five Ligue 1 matches this season. Liverpool haven’t quite been that prolific but their win over Tottenham on the weekend means they’ve scored in every Premier League fixture and two or more goals in all but one of them.
There are goalscorers throughout both squads but the heavy lifting is very much done but by the respective front threes.
Liverpool will be relying on Salah, Mané and Firmino (providing he is fit to play after getting a finger in the eye against Tottenham) while PSG will call upon Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani at Anfield.
Each of those six players is capable of scoring multiple goals on Tuesday night so make sure to have a bet on over 3.5 goals at $2.23 with Unibet.
Another way of profiting from an even match which includes plenty of goalmouth action is by taking the $7.00 that BetEasy are quoting on the game ending in a draw and there being over 2.5 goals scored.
