Liverpool vs ToulouseUEFA Europa League, KO: 20:00 Oct 26, 2023, Anfield
LIVERPOOL will be looking to make it three wins from three in Europa League Group E when they take on Toulouse at Anfield on Thursday night.
The Reds have dropped into Europe's second tier this season off the back of their fifth-placed Premier League finish last term.
Unsurprisingly, Jurgen Klopp's star-studded side are the bookies' favourites to lift the Europa League trophy in Dublin next May and they have hit the ground running with a pair of relatively comfortable wins over both LASK Linz and Union Saint-Gilloise respectively.
Last time out, Liverpool returned to winning ways in the Premier League with an efficient 2-0 win over arch-rivals Everton at Anfield on Saturday.
As for Toulouse, they are sitting second in the section after picking up a point at Union Saint-Gilloise before earning a narrow 1-0 win over LASK on Matchday Two.
Carles Martinez's men make the trip to Merseyside occupying 10th-place in Ligue 1 following a 1-1 draw at home to Reims on Sunday.
Liverpool are lowly 1/5 favourites with Ladbrokes to make it three Group E wins on the spin.
Toulouse are as big as 12/1 to triumph with William Hill while a point apiece is also considered unlikely at 6/1 with the same firm.
You won't get rich backing Liverpool at the aforementioned price so I'll head to the Bet Builder market and merge Liverpool to Win, Under 5.5 Goals and Darwin Nunez to have a shot on target at 5/6 with UniBet.
While the Reds have made a quietly impressive start to the season, they have not been blowing teams away and it could be another case of triumphing in solid if unspectacular fashion against their French guests on Thursday night.
What's more, with fixtures coming thick and fast, Jurgen Klopp will likely rotate his resources here, something the Reds chief has done to good effect in Europe this season so far.
In fact, each of Liverpool's opening two Group E victories have featured under six match goals and I'm prepared to side with the same combination here when the hosts come up against a Toulouse team that should be capable of keeping the scoreline respectable.
Team news permitting, I'll round off the Bet Builder by backing Darwin Nunez to have a minimum of one shot on target during this match.
This particular Bet Builder would have paid out in each of Liverpool's two Europa League successes this season so far and supporting the same formula on Thursday night looks worthy of interest at 5/6 (UniBet).
I'm also prepared to take it one step further and back the aforementioned Darwin Nunez to grab a goal here at 17/20 with William Hill.
The all-action Uruguayan is expected to lead the line for Liverpool on Thursday night and he looks like a prime candidate to notch against a Toulouse team with just three clean sheets to their name in 11 outings this term.
