On August 22, Manchester United take on Liverpool in Week 3 of the AFL. The match at the Old Trafford stadium in Manchester.
The Red Devils changed their head coach in the off-season, with Ralf Rangnick leaving to coach the Austrian national team and Erik ten Hag being brought in from Ajax. In preparation for the new season, United won three consecutive friendlies, including a 4-0 win against Liverpool, before drawing twice and losing 0-1 to Atletico Madrid.
Manchester United got off to a disappointing start to the season, losing at home to Brighton (1-2). In the next contest Manchester United were thrashed on the road by Brentford (0-4). With zero points and a 1-6 goal difference, MJ are at the bottom of the table. Greenwood and Williams are sidelined, with Marcial’s participation in doubt.
The Liverpool club began the season with a victory over Man City (3-1) in the match for the Super Cup in England, and then the next day played “friendly” with the “Strasbourg” reserve team (0:3). In the APL, Merseyside started with a 2-2 draw away to Fulham before sharing points with Crystal Palace (1-1) at home, playing on penalties after Nunez was sent off.
The suspended Liverpool newcomer joined Jurgen Klopp’s already long list of losses, with eight players on the sidelines: Matip, Alcantara, Conata, Jones, Jota, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey and Kelleher.
Liverpool are in 15th place with 2 points and a goal difference of 3-3. Firmino and Naby Keita could be back in action for the match against Man Utd.
Last season, Liverpool defeated MU twice, 4-0 at home and 5-0 away. Liverpool have won three times and lost only once in their last five official meetings. At Old Trafford, the Merseyside side have won two of their last five matches, with two more draws.
We will not bet on Liverpool’s third total defeat of the Mancunians, although such an outcome is likely. However, we suggest to take more reliable betting options. A net win of the Merseysiders is evaluated too low quotation, but with the total more than 2.5 already “costs” quite good – and at least three goals should be scored here for sure. The second option is a Liverpool victory with a difference of two goals or more.
