Merseyside Derby

How tantalising is this match!

I’m not sure if I have seen a better set up for this Derby in all my years of following football. Passions will be high and both teams will be desperate for a win.  Neither team can really afford to lose, but recent stats favour the home team. Everton have won 9/13 home fixtures while Liverpool have won just 1/12 away fixtures. Given various circumstances I suspect this will be a draw. This is much more likely given that it is a derby match. It’s pretty even all round on the markets, nobody is risking any decisive pricing.

When you look at the market, it has basically priced in a 1-1 draw, plumping for a match with just over 2 goals on average and a slight advantage to Everton. This makes it difficult to put a firm strategy forward until the match gets underway.

Should be a good match to watch anyhow.
