Liverpool v Hoffenheim. Betting tips, odds & prediction for the Champions League match

Maybe Liverpool was not the best side at Hoffenheim but the experience of Jurgen Klopp backed off the young daring German boss Julian Nagelsmann. The Reds were a bit faster in attacking play and deservedly scored two goals. At the same time Klopp still has problems in defense and it condemns Liverpool to concede almost in every outing. Hoffenheim is not the team that will give up in a stalemate. There are all the chances to see another great performance at Anfield as it was in a debut year for Jurgen Flopp against his previous side Borussia Dortmund.

Betting Tip: Liverpool’s megastar Felipe Coutinho is still under the question about his transfer to Barcelona. Jurgen Klopp hardly will use Coutinho in the second Hoffenheim clash

Hoffenheim had a brilliant season in the first Bundesliga in the last term. The Blue-whites’ had been unbeaten in national championship till 18-th matchday and it all concerns head coach Julian Nagelsmann. He is a bright representative of a new coach generation in Germany – young, energetic, works good with technologies. His team had lost just 4 games in the last season, less than Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. It is a serious opposite for Liverpool before the second leg at 23 of August.

Betting Tip: Hoffenheim had never played in the Champions League before

Both teams have matchdays at the last weekend. Liverpool overplayed Crystal Palace at Anfield with the only goal scored by Sadio Mane. Hoffenfeim scored the same number of goals to get a victory over Werder in Bundesliga. Both sides didn’t show all the trumps before the second leg and bots coaches have to be prepared for surprises. Julian Nagelsmann has a clean list of missing players while Jurgen Klopp is still without Nathanial Clyne and Adam Lallana.

Betting Tip: Hoffenheim had lost 4 away soil games in the last season while Liverpool had just two defeats in home soil outings in the last term. Now the Reds will be satisfied even with a draw that will lead them to the Champions’ League group stage
