Liverpool were unable to score an away goal in Germany although the bookies still think the Reds will go through to the Europa League last sixteen stage.
Jurgen Klopp’s team are 1/2 (William Hill) to beat Augsburg although it’s worth noting that Liverpool have the small matter of a Capital One Cup final on Sunday and their manager might select a weakened team accordingly.
It’s also shaky footing for the Merseyside team who know conceding an away goal means they’ll need to score twice, with the visitors 6/1 with Ladbrokes to win the game and 7/2 (Winner) to secure a draw at Anfield.
Perhaps it will be plain sailing for the Reds who can be backed at 6/5 (Paddy Power) to lead at half-time, with Klopp treating this match as a dress rehearsal for Sunday’s clash against City.
Liverpool enjoyed a rest weekend and Daniel Sturridge is likely to lead the line in this clash, with the England striker 7/2 with bet365 to break the deadlock, while Roberto Firmino has been in good form and the Brazilian is 11/2 with BetVictor to open the scoring.
Surprisingly, the Reds are as short as 4/11 (Ladbrokes) to qualify on the night and the best shout could be the 1-0 scoreline at 13/2 (BetVictor), with Liverpool looking to protect any lead they generate.
Augsburg are 2/1 with Ladbrokes to make it through to the last sixteen and will regard this match as one of the biggest in their history, with the fact that Jurgen Klopp manages Liverpool adding extra spice.
Sky Bet offer 12/1 that there is No Goalscorer and the tie goes into extra-time, with Paddy Power quoting 50/1 that Liverpool go through on spot kicks. They’ve been no stranger to penalties after encountering a shoot-out against Carlisle and West Ham already this season.
