On November 29 2016 at 19:45 in the opening game of the English League Cup at the Anfield Stadium Liverpool play against Leeds United.
Liverpool keep competing for the championship in the English Premier League. Last Saturday they prolonged their lossless series up to 14 games in a raw with a home victory against Sunderland 2:0. Last time they lost was in the second game of the championship against Burnley 2:0. As a result, Liverpool managed to gain 30 points and take the second place in the table of the EPL with 32:14 goal difference and just one point below the leaders of the league Chelsea. In the League Cup Liverpool started their way in the 1/32nd where they outplayed Burton Albion 5:0, Derby County 3:0 and Tottenham 2:1 in the 1/8th of the final.
As we know, Leeds present the football League Championship where they show pretty good results in the current season. In the latest five games they won three times and lost once against the leaders of the league Newcastle United 0:2. As a result, after 18 games played Leeds have 29 points and take the 5th place in the table with good chances to compete for the Championship Play-offs. we must also admit that Leeds started to play in the League Cup in the 1/64th where they won giants Fleetwood 2:3, Luton Town 0:1, Blackburn 0:1 and Norwich 2:3.
Liverpool won most of the games played between the teams. Last time they met in 2000 in the cup game and Liverpool outplayed Leeds 0:1 in the away game. Even though Leeds seem to have pretty good cooperation and ambitions to take the highest places, they are still the tam of lower class compared to Liverpool. The statistics of the Reads speak for itself. We don’t think there is any chance Leeds win in the upcoming game.
Predication for the match: Liverpool to win with 1.5 handicap.
