Liverpool – Leeds United
It’s time for the Premier League champion Liverpool to start defending its crown. On Saturday the Reds will face the newcomer Leeds United at the Anfield in a match from the first round of the competition. We believe there won’t be a better moment to preview this fixture in our football prediction betting tips today.
Liverpool made a fantastic season, so they didn’t feel the need to sign many players during the summer. The club’s only signing is the Greek defender Konstantinos Tsimikas who was brought in from Olympiakos. He’s playing as a left back, so we expect to see him competing with Andrew Robertson in the squad. Meanwhile the fans said goodbye to loyal lads such as Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana – they left the club.
You can be pretty sure Liverpool will try to defend their title during the new season. It’s not a coincedence that Jurgen Klopp didn’t make any significant changes to his squad – it’s almost perfect. According to the rumours, Liverpool are now close to signing Bayern Munich’s midfielder Thiago Alcantara. This would be a massive signing for the champions.
Leeds United finally returned to the Premier League after years of waiting. With such an unpredictable manager as Marcelo Bielsa, it’s going to be an exciting season for the former champions. Leeds finally returned where they belong – among the best teams in the country.
On the transfer market Leeds United proved they are not joking around. The club really boosted its attacking line by spending 30 million euro for Valencia’s striker Rodrigo Moreno. Meanwhile they also signed Helder Costa, Robin Koch, Illan Meslier and Joe Gelhardt. These signings must improve Leeds’ overall quality.
In these football prediction betting tips today we must be honest with you – we like Leeds United, but we don’t expect any suprises during their visit to Liverpool. The champions are ready to start rocking, so they are the favourites here.
