The second leg of the Capital One Cup is in progress and with that we will see Stoke City head to Anfield in an attempt to overcome a 1 loss disadvantage and progress to the next stages of the competition at the expense of Klopp and his Liverpool players. This should be a great game since we have reached a very much latter stage of the competition and both teams should want to win this match.

As qualification goes, the away goal will be in place and Liverpool will lose if Stoke win by one goal in any result other than 1-0. This should motivate Stoke since they will know that they cannot lose on the away goal rule which is something of an advantage. This team will know this and they are talent so I think that they might just be good enough since Liverpool have a lot more pressure on them in other competitions and the Klopp will know this.

With all this been said, the Reds still have the passion and will want to win since it is in their blood. They are at home and in the past this has been a fortress. The fans will be behind them but everyone knows that the EPL is the main tournament for this team and I am not sure whether they will have enough.

As far as results go, I think that Stoke will have enough to go through. For this bet, we are getting an incredible price and I am going to be putting a big bet cause I think it is incredible value. This is a great opportunity for Stoke and I think they will take it. 

Pick:
Stoke to Go Through
