There are many attractive matches scheduled this Wednesday in the cups. Southampton and Liverpool will be face to face in the English Football League Cup from 19:45, local time, but you can take a look at Copa del Rey predictions too:

For today I recommend you only single bets, but if you want, you can choose two or three predictions and make an interesting combo with 2+ or 3+ final odd.


  • The Saints have been really incostant this campaign and their recent form is not good at all.
  • More exactly, Soton are coming here after one draw and three losses, their defense conceding no fewer than 11 goals in those games.
  • They have also lost the previous two home games, 1-4 vs Tottenham and 1-2 vs West Brom, both in Premier League.
  • Anyway, it is good to know that Southampton faced Liverpool twice in 2016, being undefeated. They won 3-2 here in Premier League last campaign, getting one point in the current one after a goalless draw in November.


  • Liverpool played the final of the English Football League Cup previous edition, losing to Manchester City.
  • The Reds are coming here after a surprising draw in FA Cup, 0-0 vs Plymouth, a team from League Two.
  • Klopp rested all his important players in that game and now we expect to see the best starting eleven.
  • Coutinho is fit and he is very likely to have 20-30 minutes Wednesday evening.
  • Liverpool's recent form is not bad at all, with four wins and two draws in the last six official games.
  • They still have a good chance in Premier League title race, but League Cup is their first target of the season, since there is only one more step to the final.
  • The visiting team has scored nine goals in the last four trips, ticking two wins, one draw and one defeat, 3-4 vs Bournemouth after they were leading 2-0 and 3-1.
