Mohamed Salah – Liverpool
The Egyptian wizard is literally unstoppable for Liverpool in all competitions this season. Mohamed Salah has registered eight goals in his 10 UEFA Champions League appearances this campaign. And, he’s really irreplaceable in the squad, which makes him dangerous at Anfield this evening.
Arnaut Danjuma – Villarreal
The Dutch forward is always dangerous in the first-half. Because, he scored the match opener four times of his last five goal-scoring games. Aside from that, Arnaut Danjuma has scored 6 goals in his 10 matches for Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League. As a result, he’s a player Liverpool should be careful with in the defense.
Liverpool vs Villarreal betting tips:
Both teams to score:
The Reds have been poor defensively in the UEFA Champions League this season, because they had only three clean sheets in 10 UCL matches. Of course, they conceded goals against Inter Milan and Benfica, so both teams to score with 2.05 odd on Betpawa looks like an ideal option, because the La Liga side are most likely to score.
Liverpool under 2.5:
Villarreal have been flawless defensively in the UEFA Champions League this season, having conceded just one goal against Bayern Munich in both legs. Aside from that, the Unai Emery’s men have conceded just three goals in their last five matches in all competitions. Apparently, they aren’t joking defensively, so Liverpool aren’t expected to score more than 3 goals, and the 1.67 odd is good on Sportybet.
