Valerenga v Liverpool Preview, Pre-Season Friendly, Wednesday 7th August 2013

Valengra play their domestic football in the Norway Eliteserien. They are currently half way through their domestic season, winning just 7 of their 18 matches played and currently occupy 7th place in the league table. However they head into this game having only lost once in their last 11 matches and with home advantage will certainly fancy their chances of causing a bit of an upset on wednesday evening in Oslo.

Liverpool are preparing for another tough season in the Premiership and with the headlines at the moment dominated about the future of Luis Suarez, manager Brendan Rogers has had a difficult job in getting his players ready. However, they head into this game having won all 3 previous friendlies they have played in their pre-season, scoring 8 times and conceding 0 and will be confident of extending that unbeaten run on wednesday night.

Valerenga v Liverpool Team News

Valerenga Team News:

It will be interesting to see who manager Kjetil Kendal plays in this one as with the club currently in the middle of their domestic season, he won’t be wanting any injuries to his players, although with a packed out crowd expected at the Ullevaal Stadion on wednesday night I would expect to see a pretty strong lineup which should include the likes of Torgeir Børven who has scored 5 times this season and 37 year old Morten Berre who is the clubs top goalscorer with 7 this season.

Liverpool Team News:

Brendan Rogers has insisted that Luis Suarez is not for sale, but whether or not the Uruguayan hitman is still a Liverpool player when the transfer window closes is anyones guess. Daniel Sturridge is also unlikely to feature as he still recovers from an ankle problem, but the likes of Steven Gerrard, Philippe Coutinho, Joe Allen along with new signings Luis Alberto, Simon Mignolet and Kolo Toure should all feature at some point during the game.

Who Has The Advantage?

Two previous matches between the two clubs, with Liverpool having won the first meeting comfortably 4-1 back in 2008. However, the two clubs fought out a very entertaining 3-3 draw the last time they met each other back in 2011.

Average Goals Per Game?

Only two previous meetings, but with 11 goals scored during those two games we are presented with an average goals per game statistic of 5.5 which strongly suggests we should see a few goals grace the net on wednesday night in Oslo.

Valerenga v Liverpool Recent Form

Valerenga: D W L W D

Liverpool: W W W W W

Liverpool dominate the recent form stats having won all of their previous five games played. Valerenga have only managed two victories from their previous five played, but have only lost one of those which came against the mighty Barcelona.

Valerenga are not given much hope of winning this game on wednesday night, despite having only lost one of their last eleven matches and can be backed at odds of 18/5 with Betfred – £50 Free Bets For New Customers

The Draw did happen the last time these two clubs met each other back in 2011 so the current odds of 3/1 with Paddy Power – £50 Free Bets For New Customers could tempt a few punters to get on.

Liverpool as you would expect are the hot odds on favourites to win this game and based on what they have done so far during their pre-season campaign it should be business as usual for Brendan Rogers side who can be backed at a current best price of 11/20 with Bet365 – £200 Free Bets For New Customers

Valerenga v Liverpool Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Valengra have only lost one game in their last eleven, but that was a huge thumping of 7-0 against Barcelona which just goes to show how much the class difference is between the top teams in Europe and Liverpool are certainly amongst those, especially with this squad they have this season.

So for me this should be yet another comfortable victory for Brendan Rogers and his side as they prepare for their opening match of the English Premiership in just 10 days time.

Unfortunately the odds of taking Liverpool to win are extremely short, so with the average goals per game statistics suggesting plenty of goals to be scored, the Anytime Goalscorer and Goals Markets look the best place to concentrate on here.
