Philippe Coutinho to score and Liverpool to beat Rubin Kazan
In Thursday’s thrilling Europa League action, Liverpool travel to face Russian Premier League team Rubin Kazan, and feature in our excellent bet of the day, with a match special price (max stake £20) of 4/1 for Philippe Coutinho to score and the Reds to win.
If there is to be a match-winner for the Merseysiders, crafty Coutinho is the man to make the difference versus Kazan. Renowned for his sensational strikes as if from nowhere, the brilliant Brazilian attacker turned the tide against rivals Chelsea last time out with a barnstorming brace to help the Reds to a 3-1 victory, and will be keen do the same in Russia.
Speaking of his winner against the Blues, Coutinho commented: “I was glad to score again and help the team. I’m always looking to improve and I hope from now on I’ll continue improving, not only me, but the team, which is the most important thing.”
“Who doesn’t love Philippe Coutinho?!”
New Anfield coach Jurgen Klopp certainly has a high opinion of his star playmaker, telling press: “Did you see the last three games? Phil [Coutinho] is a brilliant player and we don’t have to talk about his qualities.
“He was cool enough in the right moment, to shoot at the right moment. That is his quality of course. I love this player. Who doesn’t love Phil?”, added the enthusiastic German of his goal hero.
As for Klopp himself, the tactician has undeniably given Merseyside a jolt, and remains undefeated since taking over the reins. Buoyed by beating the Blues and having called up a roster to Russia including big-guns such as Coutinho and Christian Benteke, Liverpool will expecting to take all three points from their tussle with the Tartars.
As for their foes, Rubin Kazan have been fallen giants this season, as they sit 12th in their domestic league, having taken just 13 points from 14 games.
The Republic of Tartarstan team have also conceded 21 times, so their wobbly rearguard will undoubtedly be on the Reds’ radar.
