The Europa League is now is the knockout stage and after a bunch of games were played last week, this week will see Liverpool at home to play German side FC Augsburg. This game is very important for both teams since neither side are doing well in their domestic leagues so going far in this competition will be somewhat of a priority.
FC Augsburg are in dreadful domestic form and are currently in the bottom half of their domestic league. This is something that will be playing on their mind as they go into this game. Nevertheless they will know that they made it to this stage of the Europa League and they will feel good about that. Having said all that, they managed to get a 0-0 draw at home and they will know a scoring draw will get them through on the away goal rule.
Liverpool on the other hand will know that they must win and since they are at home they will back themselves. I know they are a good side but for some reason I think they are playing too many games and they might just end up getting a draw. This is a brave prediction but I see this as a real chance since the Reds don’t look great at the moment and honestly there are very inconsistent.
I am going to predict a draw here and I think betting on that is the way to go. We are getting a great price on the draw as always and I like the chances of it happening so it is value in my opinion. I think that the game will be close all through the night and I expect the scores even as this clash will head comes to close.
