Liverpool would be very disappointed with its performance against a 10-man Arsenal in the EFL Cup semi-final. It was held to a 0-0 draw as the Liverpool attack just could not convert any of the chances it created. Now, it is going to be playing against Brentford in what could be a potentially tricky match. The two teams shared the spoils 3-3 when they met in 2021 and we would be in for a very exciting match if that were the case once more!
Neither of the two teams is in good form coming into this match and that is something that you must keep in mind. Liverpool has won just one match (against Shrewsbury Town) in the previous five it has played. That includes a loss to Leicester City and Draws against Chelsea and Arsenal. Brentford picked up an impressive win against Aston Villa but has also lost three out of the previous five matches it has played, including a 4-1 loss to Southampton.
The football betting sites are offering extremely short odds on Liverpool at the moment.
Match prediction and football betting sites for Liverpool vs Brentford Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Anfield, Liverpool on the 16th of January 2022.
Liverpool has a very strong starting eleven but it does not have the deepest squad. This is why it tends to struggle with injuries or player unavailability a bit more than some of the others. Without Salah and Mane upfront, the bite out of Liverpool's attack seems to have gone out. However, it is not going to be playing against a top team like Arsenal in this match but a Brentford defense that has given up 30 goals this season. More importantly, it has conceded 8 goals in its previous four Premier League matches while scoring just two in return.
A depleted Liverpool may not be as dominant against Brentford as it normally would be but we still do not expect to drop any points. The likes of Jota, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, and Van Dijk are all world-class players. Playing at home is also a big advantage when the team is struggling a bit.
Bet on Liverpool to win.
You would normally expect a lot of goals when Liverpool is playing against Brentford, however, we saw against Arsenal how Liverpool is struggling to finish without Salah and Mane on the pitch. This is why the number of goals that you get in this match may not be very high. ALso, Brentford has struggled to score in recent matches and is unlikely to make a big dent in Liverpool's defenses either. Under 2.5 goals for this match seems like good value right now.,
