Liverpool 2/9 to beat Spartak Moscow in Wednesday’s Champions League encounter
Competition: Champions League
Market: Liverpool to beat Spartak Moscow
Odds: 2/9 @ Bet365
The Champions League returns for yet another instalment in Europe’s biggest club competition. It is the final round of fixtures in this season’s group stage, and the three points on offer could be the difference between a side staying in European competition, and being forced to watch on from at home this season. With this in mind, Liverpool host Spartak Moscow on Wednesday.
Liverpool have been incredibly inconsistent in Europe this season, and they should already be out of sight in the group at this point. After five games they have won twice, drawing the other three. In their last match, they somehow conspired to waste a three-goal lead, allowing Sevilla to come back and draw 3-3 with them. Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to avoid any further slip-ups, while beating Spartak would ensure that they go through top of the group. 16 goals scored and six conceded is a good record, and they will be hoping to secure top spot with a win on Wednesday.
For Spartak Moscow it is all or nothing. They are two points behind Sevilla in second, and three behind Liverpool at the top. If Maribor pull off an unlikely result against Sevilla, and Spartak beat Liverpool, then they will go through. However, they could still progress even if Sevilla win, but they would have to beat Liverpool handsomely, with the Reds having a +10 goal difference compared to Spartak’s +3. With all of this in mind, we are backing Liverpool with odds of 2/9 from Bet365.
