Team News Manchester United

When Ralf Rangnick took over as interim coach at Manchester United at the end of last year, he was horrified. He predicted a bleak future for the team, which he felt needed to be rebuilt from scratch. He would have done it. But the Glazers, the billionaire owners of Manchester United, tried another solution: Erik Ten Haag, the successful coach of Ajax Amsterdam came to the Premier League and would not take Rangnick’s advice.

The available player material was trampled on, expensive players were brought in here and there for no apparent reason, such as Christian Eriksen, and so it was not surprising that ManU lost the first two games of the season – against teams like Brighton or Brentford this was surprising. Moreover, you have a bored superstar there with Cristiano Ronaldo, who is just waiting to find a new club.
In their plight, United have now signed the ageing, slow Casemiro from Real Madrid, who can clean up in midfield and gets on blindly with Kroos and Modric but will certainly not be ManU’s saviour. He is most probably not available yet for this match.

But one thing is for sure: It will be another exhausting season for Manchester United.

Team news Liverpool FC

Just like Manchester United, Liverpool has gone winless in their first two games of the season. But they cannot afford any more slip-ups in the title race, with Arsenal and perennial rivals Manchester City currently leading the way.

Liverpool’s big problem, however, is the many injured or suspended players, including Thiago, Diogo Jota or Oxlade-Chamberlaine, and new signing Darwin Nunez is also out for the time being after his stupid red card in the last game.

Nevertheless, we have a completely different construct here. A well-rehearsed team that desperately needs the win.


  • Liverpool has won their last three official games, scoring 4 or more goals in each.
  • In their last 5 games, friendlies included, they have always scored more than 3 goals.
  • ManU scores only 22% of their goals in the last half hour – Liverpool 40%.
  • Referee Michael Oliver gives a penalty in 33% of his games. In 63% of his games, there are at least 3 cards

Our betting prediction for Manchester United vs. Liverpool FC

In the history of the Premier League, it has almost certainly never happened before that Manchester United, the biggest and richest club in the world, gets odds of 5.00+ in a home game. But you can not even see any particular value in these odds if you assume that Manchester United can not pose any threat to Liverpool in the current set-up.

ManU’s game is simply too predictable, too simple-minded and ponderous. The signing of Casemiro won’t solve problems yet
We too can only recommend betting on Liverpool FC in this game. We bet on Liverpool -1 with the Asian handicap.

Our Prediction: Liverpool -1 AH @2.07

By Max Stargard

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
