A massive day of sport to come as Day Two of the Grand National Meeting takes centre stage at Aintree and there is also Premier League action to enjoy later on. It’s a massive game at the St Mary’s Stadium on Friday night as Southampton host title-chasing Liverpool. Could we witness an upset?
Liverpool have been excellent on the road in general but they have drawn three of their last four away games, including two 0-0 stalemates, and we wonder if they might struggle against an improving Southampton, who have only lost three times in the league during 2019.
Saints have taken points off Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham at St Mary’s this season and they have a decent record against Liverpool, losing one of their last four home games against the Reds. With that in mind, the home side could offer a bit of value for a game that carries untold pressure for Liverpool, who were fortunate to scrape past Tottenham on Sunday.
This hasn’t always been a straightforward game for Liverpool but the stand-out trend from recent head-to-head clashes is the fact that at least one team has failed to score in each of the last seven meetings. With that in mind, ticking ‘no’ in the both teams to score bracket is our best bet at 20/23.

Friday’s Football Treble
Plenty of football from around Europe to enjoy on Friday evening and Porto look good value to cover a -1 goal handicap against Boavista. The Portuguese giants are tipped to record a big win on home soil.
Meanwhile, in-form Marseille and Mario Balotelli can win at Bordeaux, while the Scottish Championship fixture involving Ross County and Dundee United is tipped to end in a home win.
Those three results make for a tempting 11/2 treble.
|Friday Football Treble||Odds||Bet|
|Tips:||Bordeaux v Marseille – Away Win||@ 13 / 10|
|Ross County v Dundee Utd – Home Win||@ 11 / 10|
|Porto v Boavista- Home Win with -1||@ 2 / 5|
