Whoops! Finally, the «Double chance» will be about real football— where the main match of the season begins: the long-awaited and unique boxing-day in England.
The period when ordinary people dream of gifts, football fans are immersed in the world of their favorite sport.
So, we take the top match of the tour and the game leaders of the championship, «Leicester» and «Liverpool», between which the difference is 10 points in favor of the Merseysiders.
Leicester has a great week! On Sunday, they played at the Etihad with Manchester city (alas, unsuccessfully — 1: 3), and now they will play with the new club world champions.
«Liverpool» successfully went to Qatar, having achieved two victories over the strongest teams of Mexico and Brazil. However, «Flamengo» was defeated by them only in overtime. And this was only the third match from the last 20 when Klopp’s team failed to win in the normal time of 90 minutes (not counting the League Cup, where the youth played).
Although in 1/2 final, «Liverpool» had a hard time with «Monterrey» (2: 1). The two such difficult matches prove that everyone needs a rest, and even «Liverpool» is not the team of robots. In the background of Leicester, which has won Rodgers this season, that could be a decisive factor. There is too much football in the season for the Reds, so boxing-day is perhaps the last hope of the pursuers. If Liverpool overcomes this stage without loss, then they will not lose after having rest.
And Leicester is really very good, although they couldn’t take the points away from the City. This defeat was the first for «the foxes» in 12 matches — the previous one, by the way, was in the first round match with the same Merseysiders – 1: 2 at Anfield, even then Leicester won the leaders. So, the best is yet to come on their field! 1X.
Our prediction: Leicester won’t lose (1x)
