Manchester City vs Liverpool Match Preview

Manchester City vs Liverpool Match Preview

Manchester City vs Liverpool Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Thursday, 2 July 2020. Kick-off 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET at the Etihad Stadium.

This is the first game for the Reds, after they secured the PL title in more than over three decades. And it's kind of poetic that the fixture is against the former champions, the Citizens.

Pep Guardiola has already announced that his team will give the ceremonial guard of honor for the new title-holders, and everything might seem friendly and courteous between the two squads. But, trust me, this is probably going to be one of the fiercest games of the whole season.

Manchester City vs Liverpool: Head-to-head (h2h)

Five of the previous six match-ups had goals from both teams.

Eight of the preceding nine encounters had three or more goals.

Nine of the former eleven wins had gone to Klopp's men.

Eight of the last nine clashes at this stadium had goals from both teams.

Ten of the past twelve meetings at this venue had three or more goals.

Manchester City vs Liverpool: Prediction

The Citizens lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Chelsea. This result had effectively confirmed the Reds as champions.

In the meantime, Klopp's men had recorded a huge 4-0 win the past game week, against Crystal Palace. In a wondrous effort, the 2019-20 PL champions did not allow the guests a single touch in their penalty box.

For Jurgen Klopp's men, a loss in the very first fixture after they have been elected champions will be nothing short of disaster, and that too against Pep's men - who, probably will be their closest competitor for the English crown for the coming seasons.

And for the Citizens, this game will make a statement - as to how the next campaign is going to be. They surely will want to record a victory here, and set start to the 2020-21 title race. By all means, expect either team to slot in goals this Thursday.

In fact, five of the previous six h2h clashes had goals from both teams, and so did eight of the former nine such encounters at this stadium. Moreover, eight of the last nine overall h2h meetings had three or more goals, and so did ten of the past twelve h2h games at this venue.

In addition, these two teams have easily been the most offensive-minded in the whole competition for the past few campaigns. Get geared for an enthralling ninety minutes, as well as a goal-fest.

Manchester City vs Liverpool: Betting Tips

Both Teams to Score @ 1.50 (1/2)

Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.60 (3/5).
