Liverpool favourites for Europa

17 February 2010 05:09
Liverpool quietly enter the Europa League tomorrow when the giants of European football Unirea Urziceni travel to Anfield. And whilst there is little fanfare being made about the event, Liverpool are actually the 6/1 favourites to win the tournament with Paddy Power, quickly becoming by far the most backed team in the tournament ahead of the likes of Juventus, Valencia and neighbours Everton. Whilst Liverpool are 4/1 for a shock exit in this round to Unirea Paddy Power actually make the next round as their most likely stage of elimination at 5/2. For the match itself Liverpool are just 2/7 for a win at Anfield with bookies expecting a dominant performance for the occasionally shot shy reds. Paddy Power offer 3/1 Liverpool pepper the Unirea goal with nine or ten shots on target whilst it’s a less likely 14/1 they manage a meager four or less. Paddy Power, said: “The UEFA Cup in all but name may not be the trophy Liverpool fans expect to be competing for but it is the one they expect to win with betting on the market virtually a one horse race since Rafa’s team dropped down into the tournament after their Champions League exit.” Rafa has guaranteed a top four finish for Liverpool and you have to think that is the main aim from now until the end of the season, will he rest Gerrard and Torres in The Europa once the league run in gets under way. Surely a win at City this weekend is more important than Unirea? LIVERPOOL EUROPA LEAGUE BETTING Liverpool Europa League stage of elimination4/1        Round of 325/2        Round of 163/1        Quarter Finals4/1        Semi Final13/2      Runner-up6/1        Winner What tournament will Liverpool play in first next season?6/5        Champions League8/13      Europa League Liverpool v Unirea Urziceni2/7        Liverpool4/1        Draw9/1        Unirea To Qualify For Next Round1/7        Liverpool4/1        Unirea  Correct Score Betting5/1        Liverpool 1-05/1        Liverpool 2-015/2      Liverpool 2-17/1        Liverpool 3-010/1      Liverpool 3-1  First Goalscorers9-2        N’Gog, Kuyt, Gerrard;13-2      Pacheco, Rodriguez7/1        Babel12/1      Riera14/1      Aquilani18/1      LucasMore available Liverpool shots on target14/1      Four or less9/1        Five or six5/1        Seven or eight3/1        Nine or ten8/11      Eleven or more Click here to get a FREE £20 BET
