Second-half Liverpool goals can produce profit in Newcastle clash

| 26.04.2013

Newcastle’s upcoming televised clash with Liverpool represents an intriguing bout, not only for the fact that the 9/5 hosts are still not clear of relegation danger.

The fixture also offers 7/5 Reds supporters the first opportunity to see how their side copes in the absence of Luis Suarez, banned for 10 matches for his bite on Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic.

But as an alternative to indulging in match betting markets, simply backing Liverpool to most regularly find the net after the 45-minute mark looks a profitable route for punters to follow in this game.

Brendan Rodgers’ men are 31/20 to score most of their total match goals after the half-time whistle, a standout price considering 35 of their 61 top-flight strikes this term have come after the break.

Meanwhile, punters should also study recent encounters between these teams in order to boost their confidence in placing such a bet.

In five of the last six meetings between the two in which Liverpool scored, the majority of their goals came after the interval, accounting for a big 10 of their 16 strikes within these matches.

And in the 12 most recent games between the sides, each of which that have seen the net bulge at least once in either half, 15 of the Reds’ 27 goals in have come in the closing period.

The aforementioned statistic could lead punters to invest in another market meanwhile, albeit to gain smaller returns.

13/20 is available regarding a goal being scored in either half of the match, regardless of which side is responsible, and that appeals immensely in light of the teams’ recent records opposing each other.

Indeed, including those previous 12 games in succession where this bet would have paid off, 16 of the last 18 matches between the pair have also featured strikes both before and after the break.

Liverpool have also notched in both halves in 10 of those 18 outings, a feat they are 2/1 to accomplish again here.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
