Liverpool vs. Genk: Reds backed to continue Champions League winning streak



After losing out to Napoli on Matchday One, Liverpool have turned things around with two successive victories. A 4-3 victory over Red Bull Salzburg and a 4-1 win at Genk has helped the Reds climb to second in Group E.

They now face Genk in the reverse fixture, in the hope of knocking the Italian group leaders off top spot. Anfield plays host to another important European night for the Reds, with Liverpool clear favourites to come out on top against the Belgian side once again.

The visitors are currently available at 25/1 to win the game, while a draw is currently 10/1.

With four goals in their last two victories in the competition, Jurgen Klopp’s side will once again be looking to find the back of the net as much as possible on Tuesday night.

The hosts have been given odds of just 4/11 to score 3+ goals once more. And it’s currently 12/1 for a repeat of the 4-1 scoreline in their first encounter.

Genk certainly held their own at times in their meeting with the Reds, and did more than hold their own in their goalless draw at home to Napoli. 

It’s currently 25/1 for another goalless draw, with the visitors currently 20/1 to somehow keep out the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane to keep another clean sheet.

They have, however, lacked solidity at the back, losing their other game 6-2 away to RB Salzburg.

The fixture at Anfield will be just their second on the road in the competition this season, and they will be hopeful that Tuesday night provides them with a change of fortune.

21-year-old Stephen Odey grabbed a late consolation goal against Liverpool last time out. The young forward is currently 13/2 to grab another against the Reds.

For Klopp’s side, it was Salah, Mane and an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain double that helped clinch all three points. The Egyptian is currently 5/2 to score the opener, with his fellow forward Mane available at 11/4. 

The English midfielder can be backed at 7/1 to score anytime throughout the 90 minutes, and 6/4 to score the opening goal of the game.

It’s another crucial week in Europe for both clubs. The away side need nothing less than all three points in order to stay in contention for a place in the top two. And the Reds will be looking to continue their Anfield dominance.

They are yet to win in Group E, however, and know they must put the home side under pressure right from the off.
