Plymouth Argyle v Liverpool Betting: Oppose goals as Klopp gives youth another chance

Having lacked their usual sparkle in attack recently, Al Hain-Cole thinks the reshuffled Reds could find life tough in front of goal at Home Park

After holding out for a 0-0 draw at Anfield, Plymouth Argyle will be hoping to complete a famous FA Cup upset when they welcome Liverpool to Home Park in Wednesday’s third round replay.

With just two defeats to their name in the last 15 home matches, Derek Adams’ team are available at 17/2 (9.50) with Betfair Sportsbook to give the crowd a memory to cherish by coming out on top against their illustrious opposition.

Without a victory in four matches for the first time since April 2016, the Reds are priced at 1/3 (1.33) to return to winning ways in Devon.

That price is likely to be too short for most punters but anyone without a Betfair account can take a huge quote of 6/1 (7.0) when signing up.

Three of those four matches have been draws, and you can get odds of 9/2 (5.50) on the guests being forced into extra-time after fifth stalemate in six FA Cup fixtures.

Having failed to score for just the fourth time in 25 matches this season in the original tie, Jurgen Klopp’s men followed that up by drawing yet another blank in the subsequent EFL Cup defeat against Southampton.

After being forced to settle for a solitary goal from the penalty spot in Sunday’s hard-earned draw away to Manchester United, Klopp’s previously rampant side have now failed to score from open play in almost 300 minutes of football.

Considering the energy-sapping performance at Old Trafford and the busy schedule coming up over the next few weeks, the German boss is sure to rotate his squad and place faith once again in the youngsters who failed to find their way past a stubborn Pilgrims backline last time out.

With this in mind, opposite number Adams will see no reason to change his tactics from those that proved so effective on Merseyside, meaning another 90 minutes of rearguard action should be expected.

All things considered, odds of 11/8 (2.38) seem generous on Plymouth ensuring under 2.5 goals are scored for their fourth consecutive FA Cup game, as well as a fifth match in six in all competitions for a Liverpool team lacking their usual cutting edge in attack. This was the recommended selection in the first meeting and paid out comfortably, and at 11/8 (2.38) it should provide a solid bet once more.
