Liverpool vs PSG Betting Preview – 18/09/18

Liverpool vs PSG

Two teams who are currently unbeaten this season lock horns in this mouth-watering Champions League curtain raiser at Anfield. Both of these sides have enjoyed a positive start to their respective league campaigns, winning each of their five fixtures so far.

The form book suggests a high scoring affair here – four of Liverpool’s opening five games have seen two or more goals scored, while PSG’s previous four fixtures have all ended with an over 3.5 goals scoreline. The visitors have found the net 17 times in Ligue 1 this season but have only managed two clean sheets in those five games, suggesting some defensive frailties. With this information considered, backing there to be over 3.5 goals in this match could be a favourable selection for your accumulator; that is priced at 11/10 with most bookmakers, however 888 Sport are offering industry best priced odds of 16/13.

Goalscorer odds & predictions

There will be an abundance of attacking talent on the pitch for this hugely anticipated clash. Liverpool’s front three need no introducing: Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all shined in this competition last term, collectively scoring 30 goals to help their club reach the final of the prestigious tournament. All three of these players have started the season well, with wide man Sadio Mane producing the most eye-catching performances so far. The 26-year-old has netted four goals in his opening five games, so carries some great momentum into this tie. Mane is best priced to open the scoring with Betway at 15/2, while you can get him to get on the scoresheet anytime at odds of 21/10, also with Betway. 

The visitors also have an extremely dangerous front three, with Neymar, Edinson Cavani and teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe all expected to line up against Liverpool. All players of the highest quality, PSG will carry such a threat in that final third with this elite trio, so expect at least one of them to find the back of the net. Cavani to score first is best priced at 6/1 with BetVictor, while Neymar is 6/1 with Betway. 19-year-old forward Kylian Mbappe, who has recently won the World Cup with France is probably the biggest threat in this game however; he finds himself in scintillating form ahead of this match, scoring four goals in his opening five games for PSG so will be keen to build on that against Liverpool. Mbappe is priced at 7/5 to score anytime with most bookmakers, however Unibet and Betfred are offering him at odds of 7/4 – the best on the market.

Liverpool

Outright betting for this match

The outright betting odds for this match favour Liverpool, who are priced at just over evens at odds of 6/5 with the majority of bookmakers, including SkyBet, William Hill and Ladbrokes. However BetVictor are offering odds of 5/4, which is slightly higher so if you were to back the hosts here, they’re the best bookie to go with. If you fancy a bet on the visitors here though, they’re priced at odds of 2/1 with Bet365 and Betfred, which just edges them above Coral and Betfair, who both have them priced at 19/10. The draw is favourably priced with SkyBet at odds of 29/10, whereas PaddyPower have them at a slightly shorter 13/5, so if you can see the points being shared this Tuesday, SkyBet would be your best option.
