Liverpool to secure Premier League top four spot with win over Middlesbrough

Liverpool will head into their final match of the season knowing that a win will secure a top-four spot in the Premier League, and on paper Jurgen Klopp's men couldn't have been dealt an easier hand as they host an already-relegated Middlesbrough side at Anfield in what should turn into a fairly one-sided affair.

  • Livepool can secure top-four spot with win
  • Middlesbrough are already relegated from Premier League
  • Liverpool beat Middlesbrough 3-0 earlier in the season

Tips Liverpool to be winning after 30 minutes    Best Bet @ 19 / 20  

Match Betting

Liverpool eased to a 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough earlier in the season, so it's no surprise to see the Reds installed as red-hot 1/6 favourites with Betfair Sportsbook, and having steamrollered West Ham United 4-0 in their last match then you have to feel that Klopp's side, who have only lost once in their last ten league matches, should have far too much firepower against their lowly rivals.

On the contrary, Middlesbrough have only won once in their last ten matches in the Premier League, and were last seen losing to Southampton 2-1, which saw them pick up their 19th league defeat of the campaign, so you have to feel that 30/1 on offer with BetVictor is more than fair about a side that are the lowest scorers in the division with 27 goals.

The draw is available at 8/1 with bet365 in this Liverpool v Middlesbrough clash, and with Arsenal fans hoping for a miracle loss for Liverpool, as they look to try and leapfrog their Merseyside adversaries with a win against Everton, but while Toffees fans may relish the idea of the Gunners toppling their main rivals, it's hard to see Liverpool not picking up three points.
Match Odds:

Liverpool To Dominate From First Whistle

With a win needed to guaranteed a top-four berth, Liverpool are sure to fly out of the traps and try and grab an early lead, and try and nullify any worry around Anfield, so the 19/20 available with Ladbrokes for Liverpool to be winning after 30 minutes is a cracking bet, as they could quite easily score in the first quarter of the match.

For those looking for even more enhanced value in that type of market then Coral are 12/5 about Liverpool leading after the first 15 minutes of the match, and it wouldn't be a surprise if they can get their heads in front early doors before trying to reject any Middlesbrough advances on their goal.

Reds To Ease To Three Points

For those Middlesbrough fans that feel their side could somehow grab a win can get 90/1 with Betfair Sportsbook for a 1-0 success, but you have to be realistic and if Liverpool can strike early then they can double their lead in the second half, and while the 5/1 with Paddy Power for a 2-0 win is the favourite in the correct score market, it is the most likely as Liverpool secure a coveted Champions League spot..
