Game Totals Prediction

At Anfield, in the second round, Liverpool's lead was overwhelming, but the victory came with a minimum score and with a decisive goal in the 89th minute: 2-1. Football will be completely different in Amsterdam, because Ajax regularly scores at home, and Liverpool shows an unstable game and often concedes away. We have no doubts that the match will turn out to be spectacular and productive, so here you can safely take “both teams to score” for 1.47 or Total over (3.0) for 1.75. You definitely can’t believe in an easy victory for the Merseysiders, so there is a reason to bet on Ajax with Handicap (+1.0) for 1.57.
