Liverpool’s continental focus

With their Premier League title defence and in tatters and their domestic form dismal, Liverpool might have to win the Champions League this season to ensure they qualify for next year’s tournament and the Reds look ready to push into the quarter-finals at RB Leipzig’s expense this week.

Jurgen Klopp chose to keep some of his stars wrapped in cotton wool on Sunday in Liverpool’s clash with Fulham, though the German’s decision back-fired when the Cottagers earned a deserved 1-0 victory on Merseyside.

Remarkably, that was Liverpool’s sixth Premier League defeat in a row at Anfield, however, with the Merseysiders’ “home” game being played in Budapest on Wednesday, they won’t have to worry about their galling performances in front of The Kop.

Leipzig in fine form

Leipzig warmed up for Wednesday’s contest with another convincing Bundesliga display at the weekend when the German title challengers cruised to an impressive 3-0 win at Freiburg.

Die Roten Bullen have won eight of their last nine assignments overall since the start of February, with their 2-0 Last 16 first leg setback against Liverpool the only black mark on an otherwise perfect record.

Expect goals in Budapest

Liverpool were comfortably the better team when they last faced Leipzig in February, and the Reds’ take a healthy 2-0 lead into Wednesday’s return fixture.

RB boss Julian Nagelsmann knows his team will have to chase goals from the first whistle on Wednesday, and Leipzig’s pursuit of parity should ensure that viewers are treated to an open, entertaining game at the Puskás Aréna.

Over 2.5 goals has landed in four of Leipzig’s seven Champions League matches this season, and the factors suggest that backers of that market could be rewarded again in what promises to be an end-to-end contest in Hungary, while our 2-2 correct score prediction feeds from the same logic.

Liverpool notched twice in the first leg without conceding, though that was only the Reds’ second clean sheet in their last 12 runouts, and a goal-hungry Leipzig team should be able to create and score chances this time around.
