England have decided to use this week’s break in the European competitions to host another local cup fixture. One of the most popular clubs in the Foggy Albion, Liverpool, will also play on Wednesday. The task for them looks simple: to pass Norwich at home… Which, however, mostly surprises just in the cup – now there will be no surprises? The readers of the website can access the author’s forecast for the match on March 2, 2022. Full statistics and all current odds can be found at 1xbet V.93.
Liverpool can now take far more than 1 trophy
“Reds” as if taking revenge on all the failures and worries of a year ago. They are in fact the only “pain in the ass” Manchester City, the reason why it is too early to talk about the end of the championship race in the Foggy Albion. LEADS. Confidently, if not quite by the game, the English have made a strong start in the Champions League. Maybe 2-0 at Milan was too unfair on Inter, but that’s the class of a great side that makes the most of chances. On Sunday, the Merseysiders played out a League Cup final with Chelsea. It dragged on for an incredibly long time: 120 dry minutes, 11 penalties each – and only after a misfire by Kepa did Klopp lift the new trophy.
Norwich surprise with their cup attitude
The Canaries are in the Premier League relegation zone. It’s quite normal for them, though, as they know how to climb out of the Champions League just fine, but they don’t know how to stay higher. On the whole, things are more or less business as usual at the moment, although at times, especially after the replacement of Daniel Farke by Dean Smith, the team tries to “bounce back”, as they did in January, with successive victories over Everton and Watford. But successive setbacks have returned to the bottom of the table. The 0-2 defeat to Southampton was their third straight. That said, it would have been logical to expect the club to ‘drain’ the other tournaments to focus on survival. But it beat Bournemouth in the League Cup in the autumn. And in another, more ranked, FA Cup, it managed to knock out stalwart Wolverhampton following Charlton.
Not to list all the Canaries’ failures in meetings with the Reds, it is enough to recall the results of the current season. It was 3-0 in the APL and 3-1 in favour of whoever it was, in the League Cup in September, Liverpool also registered an away defeat to Norwich.
No reason or reason for intrigue to be seen here. Liverpool have to prove that they are stronger. We recommend to bet on its victory with a handicap of -2 goals (odds – 1.89).
