Brentford v Liverpool betting tips: Salah bids for Reds record

| 21.09.2021

Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash

Brentford meet Liverpool for the first time in the league since 1947 and we look at the odds for their Premier League in our Brentford v Liverpool betting tips.

The Bees have made a fine start to life in the top flight while Liverpool remain unbeaten and share top spot in the table.

Saturday’s match, which takes place at Brentford Community Stadium, kicks off at 5.30pm and is live on BT Sport.

Brentford v Liverpool match odds

Brentford sit ninth in the Premier League table following their 2-0 win at Wolves last weekend. They have won two and drawn two of their five games and come into this in great heart following their 7-0 win over a poor Oldham side on Tuesday to reach the last 16 in the League Cup.

The Bees lost their last home league game against Brighton 1-0 though thanks to a 90th-minute goal from Leandro Trossard.

They have not lost consecutive home league games since a run of three in December 2018 and are 6/1 to beat Liverpool and are 17/10 to win or draw the game on the Double Chance market.

The visitors are on the longest current unbeaten run in English league football (15 games). They have won 12 and drawn three in that run.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have won four of their opening five games and are joint-top of the table following their 3-0 win over Crystal Palace last Saturday.

They also had a good win in midweek, sending Norwich spinning out of the League Cup with their second 3-0 win at Carrow Road this season.

Away from home, the Reds have won their last five games by an aggregate score of 15-3, including 3-0 in each of their last three on the road – in top-flight history, only Liverpool themselves have won four consecutive away league games by three-plus goals each time, doing so in December 2017.

Liverpool are 1/2 to win at Brentford and are 8/15 to score two or more goals in the game.

The draw is available in the Brentford v Liverpool betting tips at odds of 17/5.

Brentford v Liverpool head-to-head

Liverpool have won all four meetings in the modern era, scoring multiple goals in each of those League Cup and FA Cup games.

This will be their first clash since March 1989, when Liverpool beat Brentford 4-0 in an FA Cup quarter-final at Anfield with a brace from John Barnes and further goals from Steve McMahon and Peter Beardsley.

Brentford have not beaten Liverpool since 1938 and have won three of their 15 meetings since they first met in 1906.

Liverpool have scored exactly four goals in each of their last three meetings with Brentford in all competitions, though all these games took place between 1983 and 1989. They won the last two meetings 4-0 and it is 18/1 in the Brentford v Liverpool betting tips that they win by that score this time.

The Reds have scored four-plus goals in more consecutive matches against Rotherham (four, between 1894-1896), Crewe Alexandra (five, 1895-1992) and West Ham (four, 2017-2018).

They have lost just one of their last 27 meetings against newly-promoted sides and are 21/10 to win but concede and 6/4 to win to nil.

Brentford v Liverpool key battles

Liverpool have been relentless this season. They have been scoring for fun and stopping Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane has been difficult for the best of defenders.

Salah, who has scored six goals in his last five trips to London, is on 99 Premier League goals and one more would see the Egyptian become the fastest to 100 top-flight goals for the Reds, a record currently held by Roger Hunt. He needed 152 games to get there. Salah has played 150 games and is evens to score at any time.

Sadio Mane, who has scored three Premier League goals this season, is 6/4 to score at any time and 17/2 to score two or more.
