Liverpool +1/Real Madrid -1 Parlay risking 4 units to win 9.32 units. Kroos and Modric are back healthy for Real. Sounds weird to say on January 3rd, but Real Madrid have to win these games if they want to challenge Barcelona, Atletico, and Sevilla for the league title. Madrid should have some confidence after winning the Club World Cup (again). Villarreal tied a bad Huesca team last time out. Real Madrid are tied with Huesca for most away goals given up in the league. Madrid will focus on defense and get a clean sheet.
Liverpool is a more than a 2 to 1 underdog. Am I the only one that thinks Liverpool should be favored? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!
In all seriousness though, Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho are both back in the lineup for City, but neither is in form. They both need to stay healthy and get a run of games before I trust City against a team as good as Liverpool. Salah has scored or assisted 20 Premier League goals this season (most in the league). It is January 3rd. Liverpool have a scoreline of 18-2 in their last 5 Premier League games. They played Manchester United and Arsenal in that 5 game stretch – Silly good. City have struggled to score against Leicester and Crystal Palace and now they go against the best defender in the World in van Dijk. I’m going to side with the hotter team, instead of betting on them to trip up. Also, I don’t buy the notion that City need this win more and that will show on the pitch… Liverpool know if they get all 3 points here, they are on their way to a title.
