Atletico Madrid v Liverpool Betting Tips
Liverpool travels to Madrid as they look to retain their Champions League title.
With the league all but sewn up, it’s the chance to go for a famous treble and they’re 5/4 favorites to take victory in the first leg with William Hill.
Atletico is 23/10, with the draw priced at 11/5 – a punt perhaps worthwhile given the two-legged nature of the tie.
Key Battle: Sadio Mane v Stefan Savic
Liverpool’s front three are dangerous for any defense in the world. Diego Simeone has his men well organized at the bag so it will prove an intriguing tie.
Sadio Mane has been prolific in the Champions League and is 19/10 to score anytime.
At the other end, Alvaro Morata is 6/4 anytime and it’ll be up to Virgil van Dijk to keep him quiet.
Our Tip: Liverpool to edge it
We can see a very cagey opening. The Reds usually do the damage in the second leg, but we fancy them to take the win. 1-0 would be our tip, with William Hill pricing it at 6/1.
The form they’ve been in would suggest they are too strong for Atletico and 1/3 for Klopp’s men to qualify seems a gimme.
