Liverpool – Fulham [Recap]

January 28, 2011 0 Betting, Recaps, Soccer, Sports

Though Liverpool didn’t perform quite as well as I had expected, they were still able to bring about a 1:0 win against Fulham Wednesday.

For those who didn’t catch the game – the Reds got into the lead 52 minutes into the match when a shot by Fernando Torres was initially deflected and then knocked into the net by Fulham player John Pantsil. All in all Fulham performed reasonably well but still weren’t able to hold up against Liverpool.

This win brings Liverpool up to seventh place in the Premier League. Fulham falls to number 15 – just four points from the bottom three.

Liverpool – Fulham [Prediction]

Prediction: Liverpool Win
Stake: 7/10
Match Date: January 26
League: English Premier League
Stadium: Anfield, Liverpool

Liverpool and Fulham had been scheduled to face off last month but the match was postponed until tomorrow, January 26th at 9pm. The teams will meet at Liverpool’s home stadium Anfield, where Fulham has a terrible history – not even a single win in their last 29 visits.
Besides having home field advantage on their side, Liverpool goes into this game with a nearly full bill of health – only Milan Jovanovic and Jamie Carragher will be watching from the sidelines and Captain Steven Gerrard will be back from suspension.
Fulham, on the other hand, is down four players, all of whom are out with long-term injuries. Mark Schwarzer is also out playing with his home team Australia in the Asian Cup semi-finals.
All in all, the odds are clearly in Liverpool’s favor. The bookmakers are taking bets at around 1.5 for Liverpool, 3.5 for a draw and 6 on Fulham. I predict a win for Liverpool with a stake of 7/10. I’d guess the final score will end up around 2:0 or 3:0.
