Prediction and odds for the game: Liverpool (1/7) vs Wolves (14/1)
We are backing Luis Diaz to be an anytime goalscorer at odds of 21/20
When: Sunday 22 May 2022, Kick-off 16:00
On Sunday afternoon, Liverpool hosts Wolves at Anfield in what could be a vital Premier League encounter for the home side’s chances of winning the title.
Jurgen Klopp’s team heads into gameweek 38 of the Premier League campaign a point behind leaders and reigning champions Manchester City. The Reds know that the title race is out of their hands. They need to record a victory in this clash and hope that City fails to win their final game of the season at home to Aston Villa.
Liverpool are unbeaten in 2022 in the Premier League, a record that consists of 18 matches in the English top flight. During that stellar run of league form, the men from Merseyside have claimed 15 wins and three draws.
The Reds have once again turned Anfield into a fortress, as they are unbeaten in 22 home matches in the Premier League. A 1-1 draw at Anfield against Tottenham in their last home match ended a 12-game winning run for Liverpool on home soil in the English top-flight.
A solid defensive foundation has been the key to the Reds strong home record of late, as Klopp’s team has kept clean sheets in five of their last six home games.
Bruno Lage’s team are finishing the Premier League campaign in a poor fashion, as they travel to Anfield on the back of a six-game winless run in the English top-flight. A 1-1 home draw against already-relegated Norwich means that Wolves have drawn two and lost four of their last six league matches. The poor run of form has led to speculation about Lage’s future as the team’s head coach.
The visitors have struggled defensively of late in the English top-flight, conceding at least two goals in three of their last four matches in the Premier League. They have also not kept a clean sheet in eight league games.
The men from the Midlands have been travel sick of late in the English top-flight. In fact, the visitors have won just one of their last six away games in the Premier League, having suffered four defeats in the process. The fact that Wolves have failed to score in three of their last five away games has certainly been a factor in their poor recent away results.
Liverpool are expected to win, but once again the home win offers zilch value in the betting stakes. For our betting tips, we looking at the goals market. We backed Luis Diaz as an anytime goalscorer in Liverpool’s last outing. Unfortunately, the Colombian didn’t feature.
However, we are confident he will play in this game and are once again backing the former Porto star to find the target. The other bet we are backing is an outside one, as we are taking a punt on under 2.5 goals scored. Wolves are likely to attempt to keep things tight at the back but offer very little attacking threat.
Our Tips: We are backing Luis Diaz to be an anytime goalscorer at odds of 21/20 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 7/4. (All odds are taken from Bet365).
