LIVERPOOL will be hoping for another epic Champions League fightback when they welcome Real Madrid to Anfield tonight.
The Reds have previous when it comes to salvage operations against a La Liga giant, memorably overturning a 3-0 deficit against Barcelona in the 2019 semi-final.
And they don’t have quite as big a mountain to scale this time, with Mo Salah’s away goal in their 3-1 defeat last week meaning a 2-0 triumph will take them through.
But only a brave man would bet on Jurgen Klopp’s makeshift defence keeping a clean sheet after their shambolic display in Madrid.
Real beat Barcelona the weekend but suffered another injury blow as Lucas Vazquez joined fellow defenders Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane on the sidelines.
So there should be goals aplenty at both ends, with over 3.5 strikes priced 13/10 at McBookie.
Paddy Power are also offering 4/1 on each side having two or more shots on target in each half and that could be worth a flutter.
Manchester City remain 15/8 favourites (Betfed) to win the tournament but face a tough second leg in Dortmund after sneaking a 2-1 win at the Etihad.
Leeds scored twice against City at the weekend so there should be more goals and over 1.5 first-half strikes appeals at 11/8 with SBK.
William Hill are offering 5/4 on over three corners in each half and that also looks decent in what should be an open game.
- Each side more than two shots on target in each half at Anfield (4/1, Paddy Power)
- Over 3 corners in each half at Dortmund (5/4, William Hill)
McBookie Star Bet
- Dortmund’s Erling Haaland is 23/20 for anytime scorer against one of his summer suitors
