The Bluebirds got a vital midweek win and our tipster feels they can contribute to a high-scoring Premier League clash against Jurgen Klopp's men

Liverpool secured their spot in the Champions League semi-finals with a thumping 4-1 win over Porto.

On Sunday though, Jurgen Klopp's side will turn their attentions back to domestic matters when they visit relegation-threatened Cardiff City.

Latest Odds

The hosts secured a huge 2-0 win over Brighton on Tuesday, giving their hopes of Premier League survival a much-needed fillip.

Cardiff are up against it here though, priced at 14/1 (15.0) with 888Sport to pick up three points on home soil.

Liverpool are just 1/5 (1.20) to extend their top-flight winning run to six games while the draw trades at 11/2 (6.50).

Team News

The home side are without Callum Paterson, Matthew Connolly and Sol Bamba.

Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remain sidelined for Liverpool but Klopp doesn't appear to have any additional injury concerns to deal with.

Preview

While Cardiff are still 1/3 (1.33) to be relegated this season, their midweek win closed the gap between the Bluebirds and Brighton to just two points.

There's been a marked improvement from the Welsh side in recent weeks, who will count themselves unlucky not to have taken something from recent clashes with Chelsea and Burnley.

Liverpool are in flying form, but the Reds have looked somewhat defensively vulnerable in recent weeks - certainly more so than earlier in the campaign.

Klopp's side haven't kept a clean sheet on the road in four attempts, including on visits to Southampton and Fulham.

Tips and Predictions

While the visitors are heavy favourites, the value looks to be in backing Cardiff to make their mark on this game.

The Reds face a quick turnaround after their trip to Portugal and goals could flow freely in south Wales on Sunday. The reverse fixture at Anfield ended 4-1 to Liverpool and both teams to score appeals once again at 6/5 (2.20).

Klopp's side boast the best defence in the top-flight, but their recent displays suggest Cardiff could find some joy in the final third.

The home side scored when Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United came to this venue earlier in the season and their recent displays make quotes of 6/5 (2.20) on BTTS look overpriced.
