At the beginning of March, the round of 16 matches will take place in the FA Cup. However, there are only ten participants for the fifth main round, the remaining six teams will only be determined in the replay on Tuesday and Wednesday. Among other things, the great dominator of English football – Liverpool FC – is in action. On Anfield Road at home there is a duel between Liverpool and Shrewsbury, a third division club.

Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Soccer Betting Predictions

You’d think it would be a no-brainer and a look at the betting odds offered would hardly pay off. But far from it, if you look at the odds offered for the game between Liverpool and Shrewsbury, you will hardly believe your eyes. In front of a home crowd, betting odds of 1.80 are offered for the team that won 24 of the 25 Premier League games.

But beware of the dream of gift money and a 100 percent return within a very short time without great risk. Because there is definitely a risk and we will shed some light on why the odds on Liverpool are so high.

Liverpool – Statistics & current form

Since Manchester City lost out in the top game against Tottenham, Jürgen Klopp has been 22 (!) Points ahead. The first Reds Championship in what feels like an eternity is only a matter of weeks away. Liverpool celebrated their 24th victory in the 25th league game last weekend and shot Hasenhüttl’s Southampton 4-0 away. 73 out of 75 possible points are unique and hardly imaginable in the strongest league in the world.

Those who dominate the league in this way will also beat a third division club in their own place with a little rotation. This is out of the question, but “a little rotation” won’t apply on Tuesday. After the 2-2 draw in the first leg, Jürgen Klopp let his displeasure run wild in front of the assembled press landscape. Scheduling the second leg was more than a thorn in his side – after all, the game was scheduled for the league’s winter break. In addition, the FA recommended that the clubs not even play friendly games during this period – but now there is a competitive game on the program.

“I’m a little sorry for Shrewsbury because after the game everyone was talking about what I said and not about their great performance.” – Jürgen Klopp

Klopp made it absolutely clear that he and his players would not be on the pitch. Not because of a lack of respect for the opponent, but to protect his players for the tasks ahead. As in the League Cup duel against Aston Villa (one day before the game at the FIFA Club World Cup), the professional team is again represented by the U23.

Anyone who believed that this was just a hasty statement made out of anger felt deceived. At the Saints game, he reiterated that Neil Critchley will be on the sidelines. For Klopp, it would be a misunderstanding of coaching and management to tell players what to do. You need your trainer and that’s “Critch”.

In the League Cup, a similar Liverpool team had to surrender Aston Villa with 0: 5. In comparison, midfielders Herbie Kane (now at Hull) and Isaac Christie-Davies (now at Cercle Brugge) will not be available this time. With Sepp van den Berg (central defender) and Harvey Elliott (winger), two players with professional experience are available, but otherwise only absolute youngsters. In this respect, we see no value between Liverpool and Shrewsbury in betting on odds well below 2.00 on home win.

Probable lineup of Liverpool:
➲ Kelleher – Gallacher, Boyes, van den Berg, Hoever – Bearne, Chirivella, Clarkson – Hill, Longstaff, Elliott

Shrewsbury – Statistics & current form

Usually the “Shrews” don’t deserve the international headlines. The club from the almost 70,000-inhabitant city has been established in professional football for years, but so far the third-rate League One has been the maximum of feelings. In the 2017/18 season, the first promotion to the championship as a third in the table was only missed in the play-offs.

Otherwise, the second half of the table is usually the home of the third division. The team of head coach Sam Ricketts is currently only in 16th place in the table. This is tantamount to the no man’s land in the table, because the distance to the front is already relatively large, the Ricketts elf has a comfortable advantage behind.

Many goals are not to be expected in Shrews games. With just 24 hits in 27 games, on average not even one hit is scored per game. The top scorer is Liverpool scare Jason Cummings, but the 24-year-old striker from Scotland also has just four goals this season.

In the FA Cup, Shrewsbury presents itself as a team with strong nerves. Already against Bradford City (4th Ligist) in the first main round as well as Bristol City (2nd Ligist) in the third main round, the Ricketts-Elf prevailed in the replay. On Tuesday, betting odds of up to 4.00 are offered between the Liverpool U23 and Shrewsbury U23 to predict a victory for the guests.

Probable lineup of Shrewsbury:
➲ O’Leary – Williams, Ebanks-Landell, Pierre – Love, Laurent, Norburn, Goss, Golbourne – Whalley, Cummings

Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights

When Donald Love made an own goal of 0: 2 in the first leg in the 46th minute, nobody would have believed that the turnaround would be spectacular. But after an hour of play Jason Cummings came on and with a double strike he sensationally equalized and forced a replay.

Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Soccer Betting Predictions

Due to the fact that Jürgen Klopp only bluffs and sends a passable professional team into the race on Tuesday, seems to be at zero. The German would lose his face completely in this case. Shrewsbury Town is certainly not Aston Villa and there is a chance for the Reds’ youngsters in this FA Cup game, but we don’t see the completely inexperienced team as a favorite. On closer inspection, we strongly advise against a tip on the home side between Liverpool and Shrewsbury.

Key Facts – Liverpool vs Shrewsbury tips

📌 Liverpool is represented by the U23
📌 Joker Jason Cummings provided a double for this replay
📌 The third division has won two repeat games in this FA Cup season

Soberly considered, we don’t see the guests at a disadvantage. The team of head coach Sam Ricketts fought with a lot of sacrifice in the first leg and deserved this return game. Now there is no appearance against the stars, but at least in the event of a win, a duel with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge beckons.

A win against Liverpool – no matter who is on the pitch – is a unique opportunity for many. This probability is significantly greater than what the betting odds imply between Liverpool and Shrewsbury. The offered top odds of up to 4.00 on the guests have a value and therefore a – quite high – use of six units. The odds and earnings ratio on this bet is extremely positive, so our Liverpool vs Shrewsbury bets go against the England team.
