Our football match prediction:
A place in the English Football League Cup semis will be at stake when Liverpool and Leeds United square off against each other at Anfield. The Reds recorded a 2-0 win over Sunderland at the weekend and it has to be noted that they had 27 goal attempts during the match. Jurgen Klopp’s men stayed in the race for the trophy, but the match was marked by Philippe Coutinho’s injury. Anyhow, Liverpool are high on confidence ahead of Tuesday’s League Cup clash against Leeds United and they are regarded as favourites to make it to the semis of the competition. The Whites set up a meeting with the Premier League outfit by beating the likes of Fleetwood Town, Luton Town, Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City, but we predict that they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Tuesday’s football match against Jurgen Klopp’s charges.
