Liverpool v Chelsea: UEFA Super Cup Tips & Betting Preview

It does seem surprisingly early in the season to be considering European soccer (unless youre a Wolves fan), but Liverpools face-off with Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup comes with a wonderful texture to it an interesting curtain-raiser into the continental football season.
Champions League winners Liverpool really much picked up from where they left off campaign, putting newly-promoted Norwich. In what was quite a opening screen for Frank Lampard were very much on the receiving end of a demolition job at Old Trafford. The barefaced stats seem OK as much as Chelsea are concerned, however a 2.18-1.33 xG shortage informs a more damning narrative; Chelsea had plenty of attempts, but David de Gea was rarely stretched. ??
It needs to be pretty fascinating on Wednesday, but the outcome is outside no doubt in my view; Chelsea defended poorly against Manchester United, and if they did threaten the hosts early , it is not enough to convince me they will lay much of a glove on Jurgen Klopps guys.
There are simply not enough goals on this Chelsea side. The mustard will not cut at a leading six centre-forward needs to, although Eden Hazards reduction may take a while.
You know exactly what you buy at this point with Liverpool, and it is going to be a lot for Chelsea.
At 17/10, Liverpool looks a bet. The final meeting between these two ended 2-0 from the Reds favour, and also Liverpool look so much more powerful in all departments than the adversaries of Wednesday. ??
We were treated to our talk of controversy in Europe last year, and of what represents a penalty being much more powerful than the Premier Leagues with UEFAs interpretation, I am backing a spot-kick to be awarded.
We saw Chelsea concede a penalty against Manchester United this weekend–Kurt Zouma the guilty party–and thinking about only three sides obtained more penalties from the Premier League compared to Liverpool last season, I would suggest the possibility of the referee pointing to the place are quite high, particularly because this is a cup final (or types ).
Of course, Chelsea could also win a punishment, but its not outlandish believe VAR will take center stage. ??
It is for Virgil Van Dijk to score, although Ive gone a rogue for this tip.
Hear me out here…
Though his record in the early part of his Liverpool career was strangely plump for a man of such stature, VVD has scored seven goals in his past 23 appearances for club and country, which is a very good yield from centre-back.
Needless to say, Liverpool have a whole number of players that can (and probably will) score on Wednesday, but Van Dijk has already opened his account for the season with a goal from Norwich, also 25/1 for the Dutchman to discover the internet first against what looks like a fairly porous Chelsea is likely worth a nibble.
