Liverpool 1/25 to beat Maribor in Wednesday’s Champions League showdown

Competition: Champions League

Market: Liverpool to beat Maribor

Odds: 1/25 @ Bet365

The Champions League is back this week and there are an array of incredibly exciting and important games to come. With just nine points left to pick up, this week’s matches are vital to the aspirations of each club in the competition, with every side still in with a chance of either making it out of the group, or securing a Europa League berth. With this in mind, Liverpool host Maribor on Wednesday.

Liverpool have been in incredibly inconsistent form so far this campaign. Against Maribor, in their last game they were absolutely superb as they hammered the minnows. However, in the weeks before, the Reds have struggled to break teams down despite dominating and their defence has been a constant Achilles heel. Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to see a big win at Anfield on Wednesday which will swell their goal difference and help them to take another step towards progressing from the group.

Maribor have struggled massively in the Champions League this season, but it is not something that will surprise them considering the opponents in their group. Three games, one draw and two defeats has seen them sink to the bottom of the group, while they have also had to pick the ball out of their own net 11 times this campaign. Their trip to Anfield will be the most awe-inspiring of the group, and the players will be going all out to secure a surprise point by soaking up the pressure and trying to attack on the break. However, Liverpool are the clear favourites here, and Bet365 are giving them odds of 1/25 to beat Maribor.
