Football Prediction of the Day Liverpool vs Arsenal
Even if we see two teams very much changed compared to the Premier League match, we will definitely have the strength of the new entrants, to impress and to win a place in the first team.
I will bet in this derby on a prediction with a odds of 1.53, through which both teams will have to score at least one goal, a prediction with high chances of success considering that in 9 of the last 10 direct matches I had it.
Certainly the two teams will play offensive football as we are used to so far, and will try to take advantage of the errors in the improvised defenses for this match.
