Anzhi v Liverpool Odds: Russian side start favourites in the match betting

Liverpool face a tricky fixture in Russia on Thursday evening as they take on Anzhi in their latest Europa League outing. The Reds got the better of this corresponding fixture at Anfield two weeks ago as they won 1-0 to move top of Group A, although it is Anzhi who start favourites at the Dynamo Stadium this week.

Anzhi currently trail Liverpool by two points in the latest group standings but they are 4/5 odds on to win and leapfrog their opponents in the table. Liverpool on the other hand are 7/2 to win and 5/2 to draw with Coral as Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers attempts to cope with a hectic fixture list.

Rodgers' men, who are currently 12th in the Premier League table, make the gruelling trip to Russia just a few days before their hugely important Premiership clash with Chelsea on Sunday. It means Rodgers is going to have to tinker with his side and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him rest the likes of Steven Gerrard and top scorer Luis Suarez, who is still 13/2 to be first goalscorer.

It is fair to say that Liverpool have relied heavily on Suarez's goals this season and his absence could give Anzhi an important edge. The Russians are currently second in their own domestic league and despite losing 1-0 at Anfield a fortnight ago it is their home form that ensures they demand respect. They have won 11 of their 12 at the Dynamo Stadium this term, with that sole failure coming in the form of a 1-1 draw with the highly rated Zenit St Petersburg.

Anzhi have actually won their last four European home games to nil and the correct score of 2-0 can be backed at 7/1 in the latest betting with Coral on Thursday as Lacina Traore bids to continue his fine form. The Ivory Coast striker has scored 11 goals in 18 appearances this season and he looks good value to be first scorer at a best price 6/1 with Coral, who make Samuel Eto'o 4/1 favourite in that particular market.

The Russian side certainly look capable of grabbing a few goals against what is likely to be a much-changed Liverpool team and they are even money to score over 1.5 goals, while over 2.5 goals in the game overall is 11/10 and Liverpool's last four away from home have gone that way.

They beat Young Boys 5-3 in a thriller in their last European away match and they are now unbeaten in their last six away games in all competitions. However, they have won just one of their last nine European away days and Anzhi could prove too good in the end, with the Russian side 11/5 to win with a handicap of -1 goal.

Tip #1: Lacina Traore to score first @ 6/1 with Coral.
Tip #2: Anzhi win with a handicap of -1 goal @ 11/5 with Coral.
Tip #3: Anzhi to score over 1.5 goals @ evens with Coral.
