As always, Saturday is a day with many interesting matches, today is no exception, and our top matches start with a bang - Liverpool host both the winners of the "Cup with ears" in the Champions League and the European Super Cup - Chelsea and inevitably in front of the full stands of the legendary Anfield will be a very exciting experience for fans of the great game in a clash of two German experts ..
Liverpool started the campaign with two routine victories at zero - 3-0 over rookie Norwich as a guest and 2-0 at home a week ago against Burnley in front of over 52,000 fans. Today, however, the test against "Merseysiders" is very responsible and although it is only the third round, we have the feeling that the eventual winners will take a huge psychological bonus for a long time to come. Jürgen Klopp in a duel with his younger German colleague will certainly want to show him that the years of experience in the craft are invaluable and not to be underestimated. For this purpose, however, all his players must be at the maximum of their capabilities, the important offensive players have already signed - twice Motta and once, Salah, Mane and Firmino, but today the defense will be under tremendous pressure, so the outcome of this important and iconic clash between the Reds and the Blues will largely depend on her and the guard Alison. Fabinho missed the match for personal reasons.
Chelsea continues to delight its millions of supporters around the world, already with an important trophy ahead at the beginning of the season - the European Super Cup after a dramatic victory over Villarreal on 11.08. in Belfast at Windsor Park, after 1: 1 in regular time and 6: 5 in penalties. And this star team of Thomas Tuchel, at the beginning of the season to the "Blues" was joined by the super goal scorer Romelu Lukaku, who came from the champion of Italy Inter, after scoring 24 goals and making 9 assists. According to all experts, this makes the team much stronger, and what this will lead to, it is clear that there will be an attack on the championship title, last won in 2017 and the FA Cup won in 2018. Otherwise, the season for the Londoners started in the same way as at Liverpool - two wins to zero in the derbies against Crystal Palace - 3: 0 and over Arsenal with 2: 0, as Lukaku has already scored against "
Here are the direct matches of the last three seasons - 2018 - 2019 - 1: 1 at Stamford Bridge and a 2-0 victory for Liverpool with 2: 0 at home. In 2019 - 2020 - two successes for the "Reds" - 2: 1 in London and goal action on this field - 5: 3. Last season - won the guests - 2: 0 for Liverpool and 1: 0 on this field for the "Blues". Today with a little, but the bookmakers' favorites are the hosts, and the computer tips are four - under 2.5 goals, no goal, 1 and 1X double chance. It is not easy to predict this duel in one variant, but we direct you to the top tip based on the last two direct matches - under 2.5 goals in view of the great tension from such a match, and if we miss our consolation there will be at least 3 goals scored. . And so a forecast under 2.5 goals with a good rate and only positive emotions at all!
