Liverpool vs Real Madrid Betting Tips: Asensio value to strike again at Anfield
class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The visitors have netted 19 goals in the Champions League this season and our tipster is backing their in-form Spanish forward to add to that tally
Having put three goals past Liverpool last week, Real Madrid head to Anfield hoping for more success in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.
Zinedine Zidane’s side have at times been reliant on Karim Benzema for goals this season, but the first leg saf ellow forwards Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio turn up at the right moment to get their names on the scoresheet.
Meanwhile, Liverpool’s Mo Salah scored with the Reds’ only shot on target of the game and Jurgen Klopp will certainly be looking for an improved attacking showing from his side.
Liverpool vs Real Madrid Latest Goalscorer Odds
The hosts’ Egyptian forward is the shortest-priced player to find the back of the net at Anfield, available at 4/6 (1.66) in bet365’s anytime goalscorer market to add to his tally of six goals in the Champions League.
Next in the betting comes Diogo Jota at 21/20 (2.05), while Sadio Mane can be backed at 13/10 (2.30) – no surprise given that the trio have netted 13 of Liverpool’s 14 goals in this tournament this season.
The market leader for Real Madrid is Karim Benzema, who is available at a very tempting 6/5 (2.20), whilst Vinicius Junior netted his first ever brace for Los Blancos in the first leg and can be backed at 9/4 (3.25) to score again and at 14/1 (15.00) to net two or more.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Goalscorer Tips and Predictions
Madrid are likely to revert to the 4-3-3 formation they deployed in the first leg, with both Asensio and Vinicius set to feature alongside Benzema up front.
The former’s goal in the first leg was his fourth consecutive game scoring, the best run of his career, as well as being his eighth goal in the Champions League.
Of those eight goals, seven have come in the knockout stages and the man from Mallorca tends to show up in big European games.
Backing Asensio to score at 13/5 (3.60) could appeal, while he is a healthy 9/1 (10.00) to open the scoring.
