Betting tip UEFA Europa League: FC Liverpool - FC Augsburg
Thursday, 25.02.2016 at 19:00 hour
When Jürgen Klopp was in Augsburg for the first match, there have been a lot of speculations about his might possibly return to Germany as a coach. The game ended in a draw but Liverpool is a clear favourite to get into the eighth finals. But of course Augsburg will fight to get among the best 16 teams in the Europe League. Kick – off will be at Anfield Road at 7 p.m. this Thursday.
Current Performance of FC Liverpool - Philippe Couthinho said recently that Klopp has made them all better players, but those haven’t demonstrated the players lately. Even though they are the winners of the group B in the Europe League with teams like Sion, Rubin, Kazan and Bordeux, but in the championship it is not going so well for the team. They might not participate in international championships next season, because currently they are on the eighth place in the English Premier League. They would need three points to get the last international start. Currently Manchester United has this position. Liverpool would need a constantly good performance to pick up points. Even though they can celebrate spectacular victories, like against Norwich with a score of 5:4 or against Aston Villa with a phenomenal score of 6:0, they also have to admit several unnecessary defeats. Additionally they have to struggle with injured players like Joe Allen, Danny Ings and Adam Lallana. However the rival from Germany is in a good shape, maybe the home advantage can be a big factor in this rematch.
Current Performance of FC Augsburg - The Qualification for the Europe League was already a sensation for the German FC Augsburg. Nevertheless their performance could convince at the group stage. Augsburg is always good for a surprise and so they got nine points out of six matches and in group L with Bilbao, Partizan, Belgrad and Alkmaar. And now Augsburg has a chance to get into the eighth finals, who would have thought that at the beginning of the season? In the first match against Liverpool they clearly have shown that they have realistic chances to stand up to Liverpool. They also have won the match recently against Hannover 96 with a score of 1:0. Unfortunately the top centre player Raul Bobadilla will not be able to play in this game due to an injury. But as already mentioned, Augsburg is always good for a surprise.
Betting tip for this match - Even though Liverpool has hoped to win the first match, the chances to win the rematch are good for the team because recently they also have won against Aston Villa. It will become a scarce match but all in all Liverpool will make the step into the eighth finals. That’s why our tip is: Tip 1.
