bet365's tool allows punters to combine multiple selections into the same wager and our tipster has come up with a value bet headlined by late goals

Liverpool and Chelsea meet in Istanbul on Wednesday night with UEFA Super Cup glory up for grabs.

The Reds claimed their sixth Champions League title in June with a 2-0 win over Tottenham whilst Maurizio Sarri signed off his first and only season at Stamford Bridge with the Europa League trophy.

bet365 make Jurgen Klopp’s men just 8/13 (1.62) to win in normal time at Vodafone Park, whilst it is 5/1 (6.0) that Frank Lampard wins a trophy at the first time of asking.

An open affair looks likely in Turkey and using bet365’s Bet Builder tool, which allows punters to combine multiple selections into one bet, we have come up with a 5/1 (6.0) shot ahead of Wednesday night.

The selections are: Both Teams to Score, Most Goals in the Second Half, Mohamed Salah to score anytime, and Liverpool to lift the trophy.

Both Teams To Score

Priced at just 7/10 (1.70), there should be little to stand in the way of both teams finding the net in this one.

Although Liverpool boasted one of the best defences in Europe last season, they were uncharacteristically open during their 4-1 win over Norwich and Chelsea will hope to exploit that.

The Blues created plenty of chances despite going down 4-0 to Manchester United on Sunday and have scored against the Merseysiders in 18 of the last 19 meetings between the sides in all competitions.

Most Goals in the Second Half

Goals, then, are common when the Reds meet Chelsea, but punters often have to wait until after half-time to see the bulk of the action.

Indeed, nine of the last 12 goals scored in this fixture - dating back to January 2017 - have come in the second half, including six of the seven scored last season across three games.

Mohamed Salah to Score

Salah opened his Premier League account for the season inside just 19 minutes last week and boasts an excellent record against his former team, netting five times in just eight starts.

The Egyptian scored the second in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Chelsea last season, firing home from 30 yards, and curiously, four of the last five goals the Reds have scored against the west Londoners have come from a former Blue.

Liverpool to Lift the Trophy

Unsurprisingly, the Champions League winners have dominated this trophy in recent years, with Atletico Madrid’s victory over neighbours Real in 2018 ending a five-year winning streak for the holders of Europe’s premier competition.

With Liverpool such heavy favourites and Lampard still establishing his philosophy at Stamford Bridge, it is difficult to see past Klopp lifting another trophy and this particular selection allows for it to be via normal time, extra time or penalties.
