Our football match prediction:
Liverpool will be looking to overcome a one-goal deficit in the League Cup tie against Southampton when the two teams face each other at Anfield in the second leg. The Reds need to record a big win over the Saints if they are to book their place in the League Cup final, but Wednesday’s football match against the in-form visitors will be anything but a walk in the park for Jurgen Klopp’s team. Liverpool aim to bounce back from a shocking 3-2 loss to Swansea City and we predict that the hosts are going to leave their hearts on the field against Southampton. The Saints recorded a routine win over Leicester City at the weekend and they are now on a quest to defend their slim lead in the League Cup tie against Liverpool. Claude Puel’s charges have been anything but impressive on the road this season and that is the main reason why home win appears on the cards.
