It is round two of the League Cup semi final between Liverpool and Stoke on Tuesday, January 26th. Liverpool have the upper hand in the tie after landing a 1-0 win at the Britannia a couple of weeks ago in the first leg. Will that give them enough of a platform to move through to the final?
Or do Stoke have something to fight back with? The Potters were beaten heavily by Leicester in the Premier League on the weekend, not helped by missing a few key players in the game. Will that have taken something out of them or did they have one eye on the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi final second leg?
The two meetings this season between Liverpool and Stoke have ended in 1-0 wins for Liverpool and that was the scoreline the last time they met at Anfield (last season’s Premier League fixtures).
Liverpool have won four of the last six games against Stoke by a 1-0 scoreline. Stoke’s only success in their last six against the Reds was a 6-1 home win in last season’s Premier League.
So advantage Reds it would seem for Tuesday night who are 4/6 to win, with Stoke at 4/1. You can take 0-0 bore draw insurance on the game at online Bookmaker William Hill.
