12th September 2020 – 18:30, Anfield, Liverpool
Liverpool is going to host Leeds United in the first round of the new Premier League season. The home side wants to defend the title, while the visitors’ primary goal is to remain in the top flight at the end of the campaign.
Match Preview & Team News
Liverpool managed to lift the Premier League trophy for the first time after 30 years. They have been pretty dominant in the competition as the hosts finished 17 points ahead of Manchester City. Mohamed Salah and the lads have been pretty efficient in front of the oppositions’ goal by scoring 85 times, while Virgil van Dijk and his teammates from the backline allowed just 33 goals to their rivals. The Reds failed to win only once at Anfield last season as Burnley managed to get back home with a point. Jurgen Klopp’s side has been playing constantly well, and they want to keep up where they left off. However, Liverpool failed to lift the Community Shield trophy as they lost to Arsenal after the penalty shootout.
Leeds United finally managed to get promoted to the Premier League after years of failing to succeed that quest. They finished at the top spot of the Championship, being 10 points clear from the second-placed WBA. Marcelo Bielsa’s side had an excellent finish of the campaign as they booked six straight victories. The away side wants to avoid relegation at the end of the current season, and to show that they are committed to their goals, the Whites brought some excellent signings. Rodrigo from Valencia is the most significant one, and we might see more Leeds United’s activities in the last days of the summer market.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
