Liverpool travel to Swiss Super League Champions Basel looking for what could be a crucial Champions League win and we have some free football betting tips.
Liverpool head into this game on the back of a heart breaking last second draw in the Merseyside derby draw against Everton. Whilst Basel suffered a similar fate at the weekend after leading for most of the game they conceded in stoppage time to succumb to a draw.
Despite this draw though and the 5-1 defeat to Real Madrid in game week one there is little doubt that Basel will present Liverpool with a tough test on Wednesday. Especially, since the visitors will have to make do without star striker Daniel Sturridge who is not fit enough to be included in the match day squad.
With this in mind the bookies have Liverpool priced up at better than evens with a Liverpool win available at 11/10 with bet365. The draw is available 13/5 also with bet365 whilst the Basel win is available at 5/2 with Ladbrokes.
I really don't see how it is possible to back Liverpool at 11/10. Without Sturridge they just have not been clicking in attack and at the back the defence has looked awful. In particular, Gerrard is not providing any sort of defensive screen for the back four and this is a weakness that I expect Basel to look to exploit but giving Gerrard as little time on the ball as possible.
Despite, these weaknesses though I don't think Basel are backable at 13/5. What we need then is another way into the match and I think I have one. Given the make up of this group the results from these two Basel and Liverpool games are going to be crucial. I'm presuming that Real Madrid beat everyone and Ludogorets lose to everyone.
With this in mind I'm expecting a tight game with both sides looking to hit each other on the counter-attack. The first half will likely be incredibly close. You can get half time draw available at 13/10 with bet365. If you are feeling even more adventurous the half time correct score of 0-0 is available at 12/5 also with bet365.
For my last tip I'm going to stick with the same theme but get a bit more adventurous. Half time draw/ full time draw is available at 5/1 with William Hill. Given the importance of the game and Liverpool's poor attacking form over the last couple of matches 5/1 is great odds here.
