The six-time Champions League winners are aiming for a win in their final friendly of the summer but we are backing another high-scoring game

Liverpool play their final pre-season friendly on Wednesday evening against Lyon in Geneva.

Jurgen Klopp's men have the Community Shield against Manchester City to look forward to on Sunday, while Lyon have one more friendly against Bournemouth at the weekend before their Ligue 1 opener. 

Latest odds

The European champions are clear favourites, with bet365 pricing them at 61/100 (1.61) for what would be their first win against notable opponents this summer.

Les Gones enjoyed 2-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday and are offered at 9/2 (5.50) for another success against Premier League opposition. The draw is available at 13/5 (3.60)

Team news

Liverpool welcome back Alisson, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah who have had extended breaks following international commitments this summer. Sadio Mane remains on holiday after Senegal's run to the Africa Cup of Nations final, although Xhedran Shaqiri and Naby Keita are back from injury.

Lyon are likely to field a strong lineup which should feature new signing Thiago Mendes in midfield.

Preview

Liverpool's six friendly matches this summer have produced 24 goals, with the Merseysiders' only clean sheet coming in their first game against Tranmere Rovers.

Whilst Lyon have played just three games so far, all of those have comfortably gone over 2.5 goals and only PSG managed more goals in the French top-flight last season.

Their top scorer last term, Moussa Dembele, netted a brace as Lyon won the Emirates Cup at the weekend and there should certainly be some interested in backing the French side to contribute to a high scoring game at the Stade de Geneve.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is available at evens (2.00), which looks like a great option at a healthy price. This bet has paid out in all three of Lyon's friendlies, while also proving profitable in four of Liverpool's six clashes this summer.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
