There is plenty of entertaining soccer to be played this weekend, so as you get set for a ton of domestic action, we have all the insight and information you need to make an informed betting decision. From Liverpool trying to continue their Premier League dominance to Real Madrid climbing the La Liga ladder, here are the best bets for October 5-6.
Liverpool vs. Leicester City
After recording a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane at the weekend, Liverpool will be looking to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Leicester City at Anfield. The Reds are eager to regain the Premier League trophy, and it is more than obvious that they are fully focused on the national championship this term.
Liverpool Team News
- Alisson is back in training but isn’t likely to be fit enough to start until after the international break.
- Joel Matip is a doubt for the home side and will be assessed closer to kick off, with Joe Gomez in line to deputize if required.
- Nathaniel Clyne and Xherdan Shaqiri will sit this one out.
Leicester Team News
- James Maddison may miss out with an ankle problem, which would be a blow for the Foxes, but Brendan Rodgers will give the creator every opportunity to recover.
- Matty James, however, will miss out with a calf problem.
- Rodgers may name the same XI that blew Newcastle away last weekend, Maddison’s fitness pending.
Liverpool battled to a 1-0 win over Sheffield United to maintain their 100% start to the season and they’ll now aim to head into the international break with an eighth successive league win this season to their name. Unbeaten in their last eight home meetings with Leicester and having won their last 16 Premier League matches, the Reds are rightly favorites to secure the win here. Leicester was rampant against a poor Newcastle side last weekend, coming out 5-0 winners against the Magpies. That said, away from the King Power Stadium, the Foxes have faltered, winning only two of five matches. They will draw inspiration from Salzburg’s solid showing at Anfield on Wednesday night. However, Jurgen Klopp will demand a much-improved defensive showing here to ensure an unhappy return for Brendan Rodgers at Anfield.
