Liverpool welcome Cardiff City to Anfield hoping to extend the club’s 100% record over the Welsh team in the Premier League. Liverpool remain just behind Manchester City, who lead the table, due to an inferior goal difference. Meanwhile, Cardiff were able to jump outside the bottom three after last weekend’s results. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Liverpool were able to snatch a narrow 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town during the weekend and this was followed by a much more normal 4-0 victory in the midweek Champions League game against Crvena Zvezda.
Cardiff City picked up the first Premier League victory of the campaign after beating Fulham 4-2 at home. This was also the first Premier League success for Cardiff since beating Southampton 1-0 in April 2014.
The recent game between Liverpool and Cardiff produced a whopping 6-3 victory in favour of Liverpool at the Cardiff City Stadium. The Welsh team’s last trip to Anfield saw them lose 3-1 almost five years ago. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a victory for Liverpool.

Cardiff may be at a price of 21.00 to win the match, but it is difficult to back the Welsh team for the first victory over Liverpool since 1959. The Reds are once again back on the impressive scoring touch and the midweek Champions League win was a testament to this fact. The Reds have been struggling in the final third of late, but that is unlikely to be an issue against one of the poorest defences in the league. Our preview would choose a win for Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Cardiff City draw odds: 9.00
Cardiff City win odds: 21.00
Correct Score odds
Liverpool have not been able to dismantle opposition in the same manner as last season but they have a decent offensive record nonetheless. Liverpool could enjoy playing against Cardiff after scoring nine goals past this opponent in the last two meetings. Cardiff’s defence may be quite deep in this match but they are unlikely to stand together for much longer. Our correct score prediction for this match is to go with a Liverpool 3-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Cardiff have been unable to score in three out of the four away games. Even though the club were quite excellent going forward against Fulham, Liverpool’s defence is a much bigger and better proposition. The Reds have also been able to keep nine consecutive league clean sheets at home, as they last conceded a league goal at Anfield in February. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Mohamed Salah is back among the goals once again after coming up with three goals in his last two games. The Egyptian has not been imperious the season, but it will be difficult for Cardiff to keep him silent even then. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Mohamed Salah.
