Liverpool secured a 1-0 victory in their Europa League qualifying clash against Gomel in a scruffy clash in Belarus but as the sides renew hostilities at Anfield in the second leg, the Reds should underline their superiority with a more comfortable victory.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are just 2/9 with Paddy Power to get the job done and they should do so with plenty to spare on Merseyside, where they’re a banker at 8/11 via Blue Square when kicking off a goal behind in the handicaps.
As the Belarusian visitors are likely to be even less effective in attack than they were on their own patch, another victory ‘to nil’ for Liverpool is an enticing 4/5 via Coral and for those punters seeking something a bit more speculative but potentially lucrative, Betfred price the hosts at 13/2 to notch three times without reply.
In attack meanwhile, Luis Suarez has joined up with the Reds camp following international duty but the Uruguay striker’s Olympic exertions are likely to mean he will be named as a substitute.
New boy Fabio Borini could also drop to the bench, with Andy Carroll possible leading the line in his place and bet365 quote the powerful Geordie at 4/1 to break the deadlock.
