Liverpool Match Betting News

Liverpool endured a roller coaster campaign last term and their form during pre-season has proven to be of a similar nature.

The Reds suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Roma in midweek and manager Jurgen Klopp was not left too pleased with his side’s performance on the day.

Now Liverpool conclude their International Champions Cup campaign by facing Spanish champions Barcelona at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday and Klopp will surely be looking for a much improved performance from his side during the encounter.

Barcelona Match Betting News

Unlike Liverpool, Barcelona have been extremely consistent during pre-season so far and the Catalan giants managed a convincing 4-2 victory over Premier League champions Leicester City in their previous International Champions Cup encounter on Wednesday night.

Having faced Celtic and Leicester, Barcelona now prepare to square off against another British team in the form of Liverpool on Saturday and the encounter will be made all the more difficult due to the fact that the clash will be taking place in England at the Wembley Stadium.

That being said, Barcelona have fond memories of playing at Wembley and one can be sure that they will be heading into the encounter against Liverpool in pretty confident mood.

Liverpool vs Barcelona Match Prediction

Barcelona and Liverpool have traded blows in Europe on many occasions but their last competitive clash came way back in 2007, when the Spanish giants emerged victorious.

Since the clash, Barcelona have managed to win numerous trophies while Liverpool have pretty much stagnated. The past history will mean for little heading into the clash on Saturday though and it should prove to be a competitive fixture.

Liverpool are likely to put in a decent performance but Barcelona do look too strong at the moment and should be able to claim the victory on the night.
