Brentford v Liverpool Betting Tips & Predictions

Riding a four-match winning streak, Liverpool head to Brentford full of confidence. 

The hosts are unbeaten in five league matches, and have tasted defeat just once at home this term. Kristoffer Ajer, Aaron Hickey, and Shandon Baptiste are all out. Most importantly, Ivan Toney is also unavailable, while Frank Onyeka is a doubt.

Injuries remain a problem for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp. 

Andrew Robertson and Harvey Elliott are set to miss out after departing with knocks during the win over Leicester. Fabinho, Roberto Firmino, Curtis Jones and James Milner are doubts, too.

First Goalscorer: Darwin Nunez

9/2 (Bet365)

Darwin Nunez has unfairly been the subject of criticism. He has missed chances lately, but he has also been a nightmare for defenders. 

Again effective in the victory against Leicester, Nunez fired off seven shots after getting six off in the win over Aston Villa.

While yet to score since domestic action resumed, Nunez continues to get in the right positions and is not shying away from the responsibility of leading the line. 

This is not a Timo Werner situation – goals will come for the Uruguayan, and he’s good bet at this price. 

Half Time/Full Time: Liverpool/Liverpool

7/5 (Coral)

Liverpool have been winning at half-time and full-time in each of their last four Premier League matches. 

Brentford have been trailing at half-time on six occasions, and have fallen to defeat in four of those matches.

This is one of the league’s trickier away days, but Toney’s absence swings this considerably in Liverpool’s favour. 

Liverpool’s midfield could be outcompeted here, but their firepower in attack is enough to secure a win.

Total Corners: Over 9.5

3/4 (Betway)

Liverpool’s matches average a total of 10 corners. 

For Brentford, that figure is 9.9, and they have racked up five or more corners in their favour against both Tottenham and Chelsea already this season.

The corner count is inconsistent for Liverpool despite a high average, but there’s still value on this price in what should be an end-to-end match.
