Liverpool v Chelsea: UEFA Super Cup Tips & Betting Preview

It does seem awfully early in the season to be thinking about European football (unless you are a Wolves fan), but Liverpool’s face-off with Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup has a wonderful feel to it an interesting curtain-raiser into the continental football season.
Champions League winners Liverpool really much picked up from where they left off campaign, putting newly-promoted Norwich into the sword in the Premier League opener. Chelsea, that of course claimed the Europa League name, were very much on the receiving end of a demolition job at Old Trafford, in what has been a serious concerning opening screen for Frank Lampard to digest. The barefaced stats look OK as much as Chelsea are concerned, but a 2.18-1.33 xG deficit informs a more damning story; Chelsea had plenty of attempts, but David de Gea was rarely stretched. ??
It must be quite fascinating on Wednesday, but the result is outside any doubt in my opinion; Chelsea defended poorly against Manchester United, and while they did endanger the hosts early , it is not enough to convince me they will lay much of a glove on Jurgen Klopp’s guys.
There are simply insufficient goals on this Chelsea side. Tammy Abraham along with Olivier Giroud will not cut the mustard at a leading six centre-forward should, while the loss of Eden Hazard may also have some time to get over.
You know what you get with Liverpool at this point, and it will be too much for Chelsea.
At 17/10, Liverpool to acquire using a -1 disability looks a very solid bet. The final meeting between these two finished 2-0 at the Reds’ favour, and also Liverpool seem so much more powerful in all departments than Wednesday’s adversaries. ??
We were treated to our share of VAR-fuelled controversy in Europe last year, and also UEFA’s interpretation of what constitutes a punishment being much stricter than the Premier League’s, I am backing a spot-kick to be granted.
We saw Chelsea concede a penalty against Manchester United this weekend—Kurt Zouma the guilty party—and believing just three sides obtained more penalties in the Premier League than Liverpool last year, I would suggest the possibilities of the referee pointing to the spot are quite high, particularly as this is a cup final (or types ).
Of course, Chelsea could also win a penalty, but in Any Event, it is not outlandish think VAR will take centre stage. ??
I have gone a tiny rogue with this previous tip, but it’s for Virgil Van Dijk to score first.
Hear me out here…
Although his goalscoring record at the early portion of his Liverpool career was strangely plump for a person of such stature, VVD has now scored seven goals in his past 23 appearances for club and country, which can be a very good return from centre-back.
Obviously, Liverpool have an entire variety of gamers that will (and likely will) score first on Wednesday, but Van Dijk has already opened his account for the season with a goal against Norwich, also 25/1 for the Dutchman to obtain the net against what seems like a fairly porous Chelsea is probably worth a nibble.
