Having correctly called both a Real Madrid win and Cristiano Ronaldo to score in midweek, I’m delving into another top match this weekend in which real value can be found.
Saturday’s early kick-off (7:30 am ET) between Manchester United (+175) and Liverpool (+180) is not just a battle to be the best of the rest behind Manchester City in the Premier League. It’s also bragging rights in one of English football’s fiercest rivalries. The stakes are high: Liverpool can climb into the top two for the first time this season with a victory at Old Trafford.
Jurgen Klopp (pictured above) and his men are certainly the stronger side of late, even if there has been little between the sides in terms of points earned since the turn of the year. Meanwhile, United have had to come from behind to win their past two games. The good news for the Red Devils is that Romelu Lukaku has rediscovered some form, but it’s goalkeeper David De Gea who could, once again, be Jose Mourinho’s most important player in this one.
