Liverpool vs Shrewsbury: prediction for the FA Cup match
Liverpool are having yet another fantastic season. The Reds are successful across all tournaments: they won all six group games in the Champions League, reached the semi-finals in the League Cup, and sit in 3rd place in the Premier League standings. Liverpool can boast the largest number of goals scored in away matches - they netted 30 goals in 11 away games of the Premier League.
In the last two rounds of games, Liverpool lost to Leicester (0:1) and drew with Chelsea (2:2).
Shrewsbury Town are only in 14th position in the Football League One, and their chances of defeating Liverpool are non-existent. The Shrews look poor in away fixtures, and recorded seven of their eight victories at home.
In the last four matches, the Shrews lost points only in the game against Accrington (0:0).
Liverpool haven't conceded at home in 5 out of 7 games.
Liverpool scored 3 goals in each of the last 2 home games.
Liverpool won with the score of 4:0 in 2 of the last 6 home games.
There is no reason to bet against Liverpool, who are the strong favourites in this match. We believe that the Reds will win by a large margin and suggest playing their victory with a positive handicap.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) to Liverpool
Liverpool should be able to overcome the total by themselves. We are expecting a high-scoring win for the hosts and maybe even a goal of consolation for the Shrews.
Second bet - total over 3.5 goals
