Liverpool kick-started their Champions League Group E campaign when hitting a magnificent seven goals against Maribor in Slovenia and will be hoping for more of the same at Anfield.

The Reds had only drawn their first two fixtures but cut loose with a club-record European away win two weeks ago.

Matching that scoreline on Merseyside will be tough, but 19/10 for Jurgen Klopp’s side to prevail 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0 appeals for our Liverpool vs Maribor betting predictions.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Liverpool carved open the Maribor defence time and time again in their first encounter and found an incredible amount of space in the penalty area.

Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah both bagged a brace and Klopp beamed: “Our attitude was really outstanding. We were spot on from the first second.”

Klopp also dismissed any thoughts of easing off in the return fixture, adding: “It’s a very tight group so you need to get results. If you’re not completely focused, you can come unstuck.”

The Reds were 2-0 up inside a quarter of an hour in Slovenia and will again look to press forward from the word go at Anfield.

Looking at the Liverpool vs Maribor odds, we like 11/10 for there to be a goal in the first 15 minutes of this match.

A Look At Maribor’s Betting Odds

Maribor were always expected to struggle at this level but opened their campaign with a gutsy 1-1 draw at home to Spartak Moscow, showing plenty of spirit to come from behind.

However, Sevilla exposed their limitations when cruising to a 3-0 victory in Spain, with Wissam Yedder hitting a hat-trick.

The subsequent crushing defeat versus Liverpool left Maribor shell-shocked but head coach Darko Milanic hinted he will not look to park the bus at Anfield.

“Maybe with more defenders we’d be tighter, but we ran out of them because we play in a certain way,” said Milanic.

Maribor have lost on all four of their previous trips to England, including a 6-0 thrashing at Chelsea three seasons ago.

If the hosts hit the ground running, as we expect, 33/20 for more than two goals in the first half is fair value for our Liverpool vs Maribor betting tips.
