Our match prediction:
Buoyed by a 3-0 win over Villarreal in the Europa League semis, Liverpool take on Watford at their Anfield in the penultimate game of the season. The Reds are fully focused on winning the Europa League and there is every chance coach Jurgen Klopp will use Sunday’s football game against Hornets to rest his key players. Watford managed to avoid relegation and they will be looking to build on a come-from-behind win over Aston Villa when they square off against Liverpool at Anfield. Over 2.5 goals were scored in each of Watford’s last three games in all competitions and seeing that the Reds have been scoring goals for fun in the second half of the season, we predict that both teams will find the net in the Anfield clash. Watford recorded a 3-0 win over Liverpool in the reverse fixture, meaning that Jurgen Klopp’s men are hungry for revenge.
