Arsenal-Liverpool. We have waited so much for great English football. Two amazing teams are playing. Arsenal won the cup and Liverpool became the champion in 30 years, we are sure we will have an amazing show.
In the Premier League, Mikel Arteta's team finished in 8-th place, so the last game of the season saved the situation for the “red and white”. Recall that at the end of the season, the Premier League Arsenal beat Watford with a score of 3:2. Also, with a score of 1:0, the nominal hosts lost to Aston Villa.
In the offseason, representatives of London held a friendly game against Milton Keynes and won 1-4.
Arsenal has been strengthened by new players. The defense line was supplemented by Cedric Soares and Pablo Marie, who, after being loaned, became full-fledged players of the club. Besides them, Willian joined the team. He has to add creativity to the game.
There are staffing problems and they are significant. Two main center-backs were injured at once. We are talking about newcomer Pablo Mari and Shkodran Mustafi.
In the offseason, it became clear that the Reds remained in shape. They played two games, beating Stuttgart 3-0 and drawing 2-2 against Salzburg.
Liverpool closed last month with two victories: over Chelsea 5-3 and Newcastle 1-3. By the way, before that, guests lost to Arsenal in the in-person meeting of the Premier League with a score of 2:1.
Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson will not play in this meeting due to health problems.
Liverpool won the last Super Cup in 2006. The team lost to Manchester City on penalties last season. Arsenal have won the trophy twice in the last 5 years.
The first face-to-face meeting between Arteta and Klopp ended in victory for the Spaniard. So the confrontation will be interesting. This is the start of the season and this is England. We expect at least a couple of goals from the game. The last four head-to-head fights ended with a total over 2.5. Forecast: total match goals over 2.5 for 1.61.
Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 1.61.
