Late goals expected in FA Cup

08/01/2011 | By More

Manchester United and Liverpool commence battle on Sunday afternoon in the tie of the FA Cup third round. If the match earlier in the season is anything to go by this could well be a Cup classic. From a pure betting standpoint Liverpool’s away form this season gives plenty of reason to back a home win. Roy Hodgson’s men have won only once away from Anfield in the league and have lost six of their nine games.

However, traders might like to take more notice of the over/under goals markets. Games between these two fierce northwest rivals have often produced late goals. In four of the last five meetings there have been five goals scored later than the 70th minute. It might also pay therefore to let the game develop and if it remains level until fairly late on, consider laying the draw or backing United to win late on.
