Liverpool vs Leeds United Betting Predictions and Odds
Liverpool vs Leeds: an opening duel between the two league champions
At the weekend the ball will be rolling again in the English Premier League, the reigning champions Liverpool will start the new season in England’s elite class on Saturday against newly-promoted Leeds United.
So in the beginning, there is a sonorous duel between two traditional clubs – for Leeds, visiting Anfield after 16 years of abstinence from the top division is certainly a nice start to the season.
This would be all the nicer with a point win, preferably a triple – but this is indicated before the game Liverpool vs. Leeds, the betting odds of the providers are not down.
The LFC is a big favorite in the duel with the newcomer to the league, which is certainly not surprising. If the bookmakers have their way, Liverpool vs. Leeds’ odds is clear.
Liverpool – stats & current form
Liverpool Football Club was quiet all summer. Eliminated early in the Champions League, the LFC was able to put their feet up in August while the knockout round was running in Lisbon. And the reigning champions have noticeably held back on the transfer market as well, transfer rumors or even new signings were looked for in vain with two exceptions.
Only Kostas Tsimikas came from Piraeus for 13 million euros, and Liverpool has been associated with the commitment of Thiago Alcantaras from FC Bayern for weeks, but that’s about it. There is no real progress with this transfer, so the LFC starts the season as usual.
Liverpool relies on a well-rehearsed champions team
Liverpool FC is therefore relying on continuity and the same squad that scored 99 points last season and became champions with an 18-point lead – coach Jürgen Klopp saw no reason to change his well-established team.
The question is whether this team could not use a little extra motivation from outside, after all, the 30-year thirst for the title was finally quenched with the 2019/20 championship. However, Klopp does not believe in a decrease in motivation and ambition. “We feel as if we are in the middle of something, not at the end of something,” said Klopp, who goes on the offensive: “We won’t defend the title next season – we will attack the next title.”
The Reds do this with the opening game against Leeds, in which they are of course the big favorites, like before Liverpool vs Leeds show the odds of the betting providers.
When it comes to the question of who will become champions in England, rivals Manchester City will certainly want to have a say.
Probable formation of Liverpool:
↳ Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson – Fabinho, Henderson, Keita – Salah, Firmino, Mané

Leeds United – stats & current form
Leeds and its supporters suffered for 16 years, and now they have finally returned to the Premier League – impressively and dominantly.
Under successful coach Marcelo Bielsa they not only became champions in the second-rate championship, but the Whites also had the best defensive and second-best offensive in the league.
Mastermind Bielsa makes Leeds a champion
The guarantee of success is the eccentric Argentine on the coaching bench, who gave the team-high and aggressive pressure all over the place, which his men put into practice excellently. In the Championship, the Whites stormed unstoppably in the first place.
The star is the team (and of course the coach himself), Leeds acts as an unpredictable unit and can overwhelm the opponents with running strength, daring, and positional damage. Liverpool will also get to know the uncomfortable way of playing on Saturday, we do not consider it impossible that the guests will take something countable with them, before Liverpool vs Leeds, the tip on a draw with odds of 6.20 can be very worthwhile.
Leeds is busy shopping after the promotion
The Whites are well aware of the fact that there are different calibers as opponents in the Premier League than in the Championship, which is why they caused a stir after their promotion to the transfer market.
In Robin Koch (13 million, Freiburg), Rodrigo Moreno (30 million, Valencia), and Helder Costa (18 million, Wolverhampton), Leeds have signed three players with first division experience, one for each part of the team. The Spanish international Rodrigo, in particular, should provide the necessary goals in the front so that it works with relegation in the end.
Probable formation of Leeds United:
↳ Meslier – Ayling, Cooper, White, Dallas – Costa, Hernandez, Phillips, Klich, Harrison – Rodrigo
