Old rivals Arsenal and Liverpool will cross their swords in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.
The first leg strangely ended in a goalless stalemate, the second straight goalless result in this Cup. They however tend to light it up whenever they meet in other competitions including the Premier League.
This should be a fiery one and we will turn to Greatodds and Melbet betting options and prices for our betting tips today in this preview.
Arsenal match at the weekend against Tottenham, just like the initial first leg of this semifinal, had to be postponed as a result of a surge in COVID 19 cases in the club.
That was a bit of a respite for the club who have been sliding down the slippery slope, failing to win any of their last three matches (2L, 1D)
That draw was the first leg encounter against Liverpool at Anfield and even that could have possibly been a loss with Liverpool profligate in front of goal with their chances
Liverpool easily swept Brentford 3-0 at the weekend as Firminho, Oxlade Chamberlain and Minamino continue to put in good shifts in the absence of their leading strikers Mane and Salah who are currently representing their countries at the AFCON 2021 tournament in Cameroon.
That win however did little to enhance their Premier League chances as Man City have blown everybody out of the water following their crucial 1-0 over Chelsea at the weekend which opened up a double-digit cushion at the summit of the league over the chasing pack.
The Reds are will be looking to extend their record wins in this competition to 13 but they will need to finish better than they did in the first leg if they hope to get to the finals.

ARSENAL VS LIVERPOOL PREDICTIONS
With the EPL title seemingly out of reach at this juncture, there will be a renewed focus on this cup as the one realistic silverware to try and salvage this season for both of these teams. There is no love lost between them as we saw in the first leg where Xhaka picked up a straight red card for what was deemed to have been a rash challenge. With the tie finely poised and a chance at getting to the final at stake, we can expect another physical and feisty encounter. We are therefore backing the game to have at least 4 bookings @ 1.46 with Melbet Welcome Bonus as our opening tip here.
With Arsenal just nursing themselves back to health and some players still listed as either doubtful or unavailable for this match, we feel this gives the Red a bit of an edge coming into this match. They looked quite solid at the back at the weekend and their new front three played fluidly and seamlessly. As such we are backing Liverpool to emerge victorious here @ 2.05 with Greatodds Free Bet as our final prediction.
