Match: Wigan Athletic vs. Liverpool Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Sunday, 17 July, 2016
Start time: 16:00 UK
The team of Liverpool will face Wigan Athletic in a friendly match, which will be the third for the team of Jürgen Klopp this summer.
Wigan returned to “Championship” and will try to establish itself in the second level of English football. Gary Caldwell’s team has already played three friendlies this month in his first game made 0:0 with Sporting Braga, then finish with the same result with Chester. A day before the match against Liverpool Wigan lost to Manchester United 0:2. “The Latics” haven’t class new signings to raise the level of the team and will rely heavily on players from last season.
Liverpool started with two wins their friendlies games – over Tranmere Rovers (1:0) and Fleetwood Town (5:0). In these meetings Jürgen Klopp use as many players, including all new players – Loris Karius, Sadio Mané, Joel Matip and Marko Grujic. Serbian talent Grujic even scored one of the hits in win over Fleetwood, implying that it expects a bright future at “Anfield”.
Currently, Jürgen Klopp gives the chance of pretty teenagers to show their qualities. The first controls “Liverpool” can not be in optimal composition while Wigan demonstrated solid game in defense and I think it will be a tough match in which we will not see more than two goals.
