Liverpool vs Maribor by Blackcrow

Liverpool are equal leaders of Group E with Spartak Moscow as both sides have five points, but the Reds will be looking to go outright first as Spartak Moscow will have a much tougher game away to Sevilla. Liverpool thrashed Maribor 7-0 and it could have been much more as they had 14 shots on goal and 7 shots were off target while they had 67% possession. Now at home, at Anfield, they will look to show their fans that they have started to turn the corner and be much more consistent, both defending, and putting away their chances. On the weekend they had to be patient against a determined Huddersfield side, but once they got their first goal in the 50th minute, two more goals followed.


Maribor have just one point from their group as they not only lost 7-0 at home to Liverpool, they lost 3-0 at Sevilla and drew 1-1 at home with Spartak Moscow. Their preparation was inconvenienced for this game as they also had problems with the plane which gives them even less time to get ready to face a side that will be expected to win this game comfortably. Hard to see them improving in two weeks to make it a close game with only complacency on Liverpool's part a factor- but if that happens, then can see Klopp giving them a pretty stern half time talk to wake them up.


Liverpool should have a pretty strong line up for this game, and even if Coutinho and Lovren do not play, they have some handy players in Klavan and Sturridge filling in for them. A win here will continue the feel good factor they had after the Huddersfield game and with West Ham on the weekend, they will be looking for three comfortable wins in a row. With PSG winning 5-0 at home over Anderlecht, after beating them 4-0 in the reverse fixture, no reason why Liverpool also cannot put two comprehensive wins back to back. Odds are not that great for such a large handicap, but that reflects the disparity in quality between the two sides

This isn't necessarily a bad bet, but the odds just aren't worth it. It makes no difference to Liverpool if they win 2-0 or 5-0. Getting on a huge line like this at even odds is playing right into the hands of the bookies. They know no one will want to get on Maribor here, so they blow the line out and wait for everyone to throw their money away on the better team to clear a huge line. No value, do not touch.
