Liverpool vs Watford Prediction & Betting tips
In the race for the Champions League places, Liverpool FC, after the 1: 2 defeat last weekend against Manchester United, needed on next match day again a victory. Watford FC is the opponent on Saturday night. The “Hornets” are waiting since November 2017 for an away win and currently have to cope with some failures. The venue of the match between the two clubs is the stadium at Anfield.
With eight games to go, Liverpool FC are fourth in the league table, which would qualify them for the Champions League in the coming season. Following a 2-1 defeat at Manchester United last weekend, the Reds will again need a win next Saturday to at least maintain a four-point gap to Chelsea FC. Compared to second-placed Manchester, Liverpool FC had to concede two goals early on the final day of the match, giving their opponents’ defensive play a good start. With an own goal by Eric Bailly the “Reds” approached again, but failed to equalize. The record at home Anfield gives the team of coach Jürgen Klopp for the upcoming match against Watford FC confidence.
Liverpool FC have not lost a home game in this Premier League season. In addition to nine wins, there were six draws for the Reds at Anfield this season. The English also won five of their last six home games in the league. The offensive series is the strength of the team. Right winger Mohamed Salah, left winger Sadio Mane and center-forward Roberto Firmino have scored 45 goals in the league. Liverpool FC have already been able to celebrate some clear victories this season with these goals. Twelve of their 17 victories this season, they celebrated with at least two hits difference. In addition to long-suffering right-back Nathaniel Clyne and substitute goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, Jürgen Klopp will face all players before the match against Watford FC.
After 30 matchdays, Watford FC are tenth in the English Premier League. In the table midfield, the team of coach Javi Garcia currently has nothing to do with the descent. The gap to the European ranks is twelve points, so the “Hornets” are in the “no-man’s-land” of the classification. They have a total record of ten wins, six draws and 14 defeats. Watford FC have conceded 50 goals this season. This gives you one of the weakest defensives in the Premier League. In home and away games, the Garcia-Elf delivered in the recent past different results. While the last three home games have all been won, Watford FC have been waiting for an away win since November 2017. Eight of the last nine games in the distance have been lost.
Watford was beaten 3-0 at Arsenal FC last Sunday. In this game, the defensive weakness of the team was noticeable. There have been defeats with at least two goals difference for the “Hornets” already eight times this season. The record against Liverpool FC does not speak for the team of coach Javi Garcia. Watford FC fought a 3-3 draw against the Reds in the first half of the season, but lost eight of their last nine Anfield matches. Before the coming clash with Liverpool FC, Watford’s injury list is long. Nine players in total fall out, including top performers such as Tom Cleverley, Christian Kabasele and Gerard Deulofeu.
