In our opinion, this confrontation will be extremely interesting and not rich in goals. In the first game, the score was 0-0. Arsenal looked very cool in defence after Xhaka was sent off due to a rough foul. But it is unlikely that they will be able to go to the final of the EFL CUP – the class of guests is higher now.
In our opinion, it will be very difficult for the hosts. They also have big personnel losses, and the delegation for the African Cup is no less. We think Liverpool will have a minimal advantage and will go to the next stage. The odds for this outcome are 1.6.
