Today tip: Manchester City vs Liverpool
After the World Cup, the top club football returned, and today the big derby between Manchester City and Liverpool in the League Cup is on the program.
Will City finally celebrate against Liverpool?
Manchester City and Liverpool fought a big battle for the title last season, where the "citizens" could quickly lose the title in the last round. And this season, City has the highest goals, i.e. winning all the trophies for which it competes. Because of that, the "citizens" will not give up on the League Cup, although the focus will certainly be on the Premier League and the Champions League. At this moment, the "citizens" are in second place in the table with as many as five points less than Arsenal. Because of that, Guardiola's team prepared well for the rest of the season, even though they played only one friendly match during the World Cup. This will be City's 5th attempt to beat Liverpool in 2022. They played four matches in which the "reds" won three times and drew once. As for the squad, Guardiola will not be able to count on Alvarez, who has not yet returned from the World Cup.
Liverpool is playing below expectations this season
Liverpool's players were in the race for all four trophies last season, and in the end won only two, the FA Cup and the League Cup. Although they lost the two most important trophies, the season can still be considered a success, so Klopp and his team will want to defend the title in the League Cup this season. Especially due to the fact that the "reds" are playing very badly in the Premier League this season and are far behind the top, so they are already out of the race for the title. At this moment, Liverpool is in 6th place in the table with even seven points less than fourth-placed Tottenham. That's why the goal this season is a placement in the Top 4, although that won't be easy either. As for the Champions League, Liverpool finished second in the group and faced Real Madrid in what will surely be the biggest derby in the round of 16. Because of that, the "reds" prepared well for the rest of the season. They prepared in Dubai where they played strong friendly matches against Lyon and Milan and tempered their form. As for the team, Klopp will not be able to count on the injured Diaz and Jota for this match.
At today tip these two teams always play exciting matches with many goals because they have fantastic attacks. We believe that it will be the same this time, even though the stakes are high, so we expect goals from both sides.
