Our expert made a prediction for a match of the 4th round of the FA Cup between Shrewsbury and Liverpool will take place on January 26.
Liverpool plays a variety of cup games with the reserve team. This wasn’t a problem to go through the first stages and, in the third round, beat the Everton. The match with Shrewsbury will not be an easy walk, because underdogs from the lower leagues almost always show the best they can and literally “die” on the field. But the class is the class, and even the reserve of the Reds is three to four heads stronger than the hosts. The Merseysiders are likely to play with Adrian, Origi, Lallana, Jones, maybe Harvey Elliott, etc.
“Shrewsbury” is in sixteenth place in League 1, but they will have an extraordinary motivation for this game because Liverpool comes! And it doesn’t matter that the squad of the guests is not optimal. The hosts can’t win five matches in a row. In six of the last seven games, Shrewsbury couldn’t win, but in general, the team was quite impressive, and four matches ended with mutual goals.
It’s hard to talk about any intrigue. The scenario is clear: the hosts will fight, defend, try to counterattack. Liverpool will do everything to achieve a positive result in the first match. Origi and the company insanely want to show themselves to get a chance at the start of the game of the Premier League or the Champions League.
Our Prediction: Both Teams to Score
