Liverpool vs Manchester United

Two behemoths of the English game fighting for different end-of-season goals pit their wits against one another on Tuesday night, as Liverpool play host to Manchester United at Anfield in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s side head into the game having just booked their spot in the FA Cup final, while the Red Devils were indebted to a current and former hero in a 3-2 league win versus Norwich City.

One domestic title is already in the bag, they are potentially only 270 minutes away from a seventh Champions League crown, and another trip to Wembley awaits this rampant Liverpool side, whose fans are growing more optimistic about a possible quadruple with each passing week.

The Reds blew Manchester City out of the water with three quickfire goals in their FA Cup semi-final – two for Sadio Mane and another header from Ibrahima Konate – and Pep Guardiola’s men could not spark a miraculous turnaround despite restoring some parity through Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish.

The Easter period has not been kind to Liverpool’s jellied legs, but incredibly, the AXA treatment room is virtually empty, and Klopp’s side remain within touching distance of reigning Premier League champions City after rescuing a 2-2 draw at the Etihad last week.

With City not in action again until Wednesday, Liverpool could dethrone the league leaders for at least 24 hours with victory in front of their own supporters, and stringing together an eight-game winning run in all competitions is certainly a recipe for success ahead of Tuesday’s battle.

The Reds have also scored at least two goals in each of their last five games continentally and domestically and have remarkably won 10 on the bounce at Anfield in the Premier League – no English top-flight side has performed better than them on home turf this season – and their opponents therefore have their work cut out to add to the measly seven home goals that Klopp’s side have conceded in the league this term.

Often labelled the problem at Man United this term, Cristiano Ronaldo was very much the solution during the visit of Norwich City, who responded to the Portuguese’s early double through Kieran Dowell’s header and Teemu Pukki’s near-post finish in front of a frustrated Old Trafford crowd.

A spate of dodgy defending so nearly cost Man United dear once again, but with 76 minutes on the clock, Ronaldo stood over a free kick with his trademark pose before firing an unstoppable effort into the net – claiming his 60th career hat-trick and saving the Red Devils’ bacon in the process.

Manager-elect Erik ten Hag may not have had his eyes on the 3-2 win while he prepares for KNVB-Beker final duty with Ajax, but the current man in control of the reins Ralf Rangnick has now witnessed his side leapfrog Arsenal into fifth place in the Premier League table, although Tottenham Hotspur are still three points clear with a far better goal difference.

Victory over relegation favourites Norwich represents just a second win from eight in all competitions during an underwhelming spell for Man United, though, and not since December have they kept a clean sheet on the road in the Premier League – losing two in a row on rival turf to Manchester City and Everton.

Not a single Red Devils fan needs reminding of the 5-0 embarrassment that was dished upon them by Liverpool back in October, so revenge will certainly be on the visitors’ minds this week, but they have failed to register a win at Anfield in any competition since 2016 and have only found the back of the net once on their rivals’ turf in their last six meetings.

Real Sociedad vs. Real Betis

Two teams battling for top-four finishes in La Liga will lock horns on Friday evening, as Real Sociedad welcome Real Betis to Anoeta Stadium.

Real Sociedad are currently sixth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid, while Betis occupy fifth, two points ahead of their opponents in this match.

Real Sociedad have not finished higher than fifth in Spain’s top flight since claiming fourth in 2013, so it would be an impressive achievement for the Basque outfit to claim a Champions League spot for next term, but they have a lot of work to do if that dream is to become a reality.

Imanol Alguacil’s side are currently sixth in the table, eight points clear of seventh-placed Villarreal, so they are in an excellent position to claim at least a Europa League spot, but just three points separate them from fourth-placed Atletico on the same number of matches (31), so fourth position is very much open.

Real Sociedad have been in impressive form since losing 4-1 at Real Madrid on March 5, picking up 10 points from their last four league matches, including back-to-back wins over Espanyol and Elche this month.

The White and Blues have a tough end to the season on paper, taking on Barcelona in their next match after this one, while their final two league games of the campaign are against Villarreal and Atletico.

The Basque outfit have been strong in front of their own supporters this season, picking up 31 points from 15 matches, recording nine wins in the process, but they will be welcoming a Betis outfit that boast the third-best away record in 2021-22, collecting 27 points from their 15 league games on their travels.

Real Betis have not claimed a top-four spot in La Liga since 2005, meanwhile, so it would be a huge story if they managed to secure top-level European football for next season.

The Green and Whites were disappointingly knocked out by Eintracht Frankfurt in the last-16 stage of the Europa League, but they can still win silverware this season, preparing to take on Valencia in the final of the Copa del Rey on April 22.

Real Betis, like Real Sociedad, also have a tough end to their La Liga season, facing both Barcelona and Real Madrid in their final four matches, and it will be fascinating to see where Manuel Pellegrini’s side end up come the end of the campaign.

The Seville-based outfit, as mentioned, are currently fifth in the table, just one point behind fourth-placed Atletico, while they are just four points behind second-placed Barcelona, so in theory, there are three Champions League spots open in the final weeks of the season.

Real Betis have also picked up 10 points from their last four league matches, recording back-to-back victories over Osasuna and Cadiz in their last two, while only Real Madrid (22) have won more games than Pellegrini’s team (17) in Spain’s top flight this season, which is an indication of their achievements thus far.

Real Madrid vs Chelsea predictions & tips

Pick of Soccerpet: Chelsea +0 (Asian)

Reason: Real Madrid is the most successful team in the Champions League. The team has won the Champions League for 13 times and has won an unprecedented three consecutive titles. Real Madrid has enjoyed a spring festival this season, with 22 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses in the league, ranking No. 1 in La Liga. There is no accident that the championship trophy will be included in the bag. After winning Getafe 2-0 at home in the last round of the league, Real Madrid recently won three consecutive victories in various competitions again. Chelsea, the Premier League giants, played quite well in the Champions League last season. In the final, they defeated Manchester City 1-0 and won the second Champions League in the team’s history. In the last round of the league, they won Southampton 6-0 away, swept away the decline of the previous two consecutive defeats, vented their dissatisfaction with a hearty victory and showed their strength to the outside world. In the first leg, Real Madrid won Chelsea 3-1 away, and the balance of victory has tended to Real Madrid. The recent state of the two teams is better than Real Madrid. The heat of comprehensive analysis is still in Real Madrid. It is worth noting that Real Madrid met Getafe the day before yesterday. The schedule is too intensive, and the players’ physical fitness can be reduced. Chelsea has a day’s rest more than Real Madrid. Chelsea is already standing on the edge of the cliff. You might as well look forward to Chelsea breaking the boat and winning the game!

Liverpool vs Watford

With 16 places and 47 points separating them in the Premier League table, Liverpool and Watford resume top-flight action with Saturday’s lunchtime kickoff at Anfield.

The second-placed Reds find themselves just one point behind Manchester City at the summit, while Roy Hodgson‘s side are three points adrift of safety in 18th.

Only a couple of months after Liverpool had seemingly conceded the crown to Man City once again, we have a title race on our hands, and Jurgen Klopp‘s side are showing no signs of faltering as they continue their pursuit of an unprecedented quadruple.

Diogo Jota‘s close-range effort against Nottingham Forest saw Liverpool advance to the semi-finals of the FA Cup just before the international break – with the FA controversially refusing to move the fixture from Wembley despite travel disruption – and there is the small matter of next week’s Champions League quarter-final first leg with Benfica to come as well.

With their only defeat in any competition since the turn of the year being that inconsequential loss to Inter Milan on their own turf, Liverpool are now within touching distance of Man City at the summit before the two heavyweights meet in a mouthwatering showdown on April 10 and would go top with a win here for at least a couple of hours before the champions meet Burnley.

It is now nine Premier League victories in a row for this rampant Liverpool outfit – who have kept clean sheets in each of their last four in the top flight and have scored 23 in their sparkling winning run – and Anfield is not often a happy hunting ground for visiting teams.

Indeed, Klopp’s crop welcome Watford to Merseyside having won each of their last nine Premier League games at Anfield – where they are unbeaten domestically for over a year – and their tally of seven home goals conceded this term is unlikely to worsen against the goal-shy Hornets.

Roy Hodgson’s stint in the home dugout at Anfield may have been incredibly short-lived, but the 74-year-old is no stranger to taking his spot in the visiting end, and he may just have uncovered a hidden gem in his side’s fight against the drop.

A couple of weeks on from his stunning yet inconsequential bicycle kick against Arsenal, Cucho Hernandez was at the double for Watford to propel them to a crucial 2-1 victory over Southampton at St Mary’s, with the Hornets holding on for the entire second half after Mohamed Elyounoussi‘s effort.

Hernandez has had to be patient for his opportunities in black and yellow but has certainly staked his claim for a regular first-team role now – Colombia could have done with him after missing out on a spot in the World Cup – but Watford’s survival destiny is still out of their own hands.

Indeed, Hodgson’s side remain below the dotted line in 18th and sit three points adrift of 17th-placed Everton – who have two games in hand – but a record of just two defeats from their last seven league games away from home is a cause for slight optimism.

However, Liverpool produced a five-star showing to thrash their upcoming opponents 5-0 at Vicarage Road back in October, and Watford are on a six-game Premier League losing run at Anfield since Graham Taylor oversaw a 1-0 win in August 1999.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is fighting to recover from his hamstring injury in time for Saturday’s game, but the midweek encounter with Benfica is a more realistic aim for the Premier League’s leading creator.

Naby Keita will need assessing after pulling out of international duty with a “minor” knee issue, but James Milner and Andy Robertson are expected to be available again following recent COVID-19 infections.

With Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both going the distance in their pivotal World Cup qualifier, Klopp may elect to rotate a tad for Saturday’s game, with Liverpool facing an unforgiving run of fixtures over the Easter period.

As for Watford, Jeremy Ngakia was once again absent for the Southampton win but should be fine to return here, while Nicolas Nkoulou could also apply for a place in the squad.

Hodgson may be tempted to bring in another defender or two to try to keep the scoreline respectable, but the veteran boss has little reason to alter the winning formula from St Mary’s.

Such a setup would see Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis join Hernandez in the final third, but Ismaila Sarr returned from injury for Senegal during the international break and could force his way in.

Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Jota

Watford possible starting lineup:
Foster; Femenia, Kabasele, Samir, Kamara; Louza, Sissoko, Kucka; Hernandez, Pedro, Dennis

Match Preview and News of  Costa Rica vs USA

A spot in Qatar will be up for grabs on Wednesday as the USA battle Costa Rica at Estadio National de Costa Rica in World Cup 2022 qualifying.

To make it into the top three, Los Ticos will need a big win and some help, while the equation is much simpler for the Americans, who can advance to their 10th World Cup with just a single point.

Costa Rica coach Luis Fernando Suarez on March 25, 2022

It has been quite the resurgence for Costa Rica, who never threw in the towel despite a poor opening seven matches in the Octagon.

On Sunday, Luis Fernando Suarez saw his side hang back and defend once again for most of their encounter against El Salvador, but in the end, they got the job done, winning 2-1 and putting themselves in a solid position to keep the possibility of a third successive trip to the finals intact.

They come into their final game unbeaten in six straight qualifiers, five of which were victories, and at worst, Los Ticos will find themselves playing in an inter-confederation playoff, regardless of how this match ends up.

Costa Rica deserve a ton of credit for the way they came together during a brutal qualifying stretch to turn their campaign around before it was too late.

This side may lack creativity and quality in attack, though they make up for it with tremendous poise on the backline and intelligent positional play.

The US have won their last four meeting versus these Central Americans, however, Los Ticos have never lost a World Cup qualifier to the Yanks on home soil, outscoring them 22-7.

Many had written this team off, assuming their time had passed, but even though it has not always been impressive, Costa Rica are showing that they may still have another great run left.

With the weight of expectation on their shoulders, the United States put together perhaps their most impressive display in the Octagon to date, demolishing Panama 5-1 in front of a raucous crowd in Orlando.

The Yanks pressed the issue from the opening whistle on Sunday, putting the Panamanians on their heels with tremendous speed and precise passing.

It was the ideal scenario for the US, as they went into half time with a four-goal cushion, allowing them to rest some of their star players heading into this pivotal encounter.

While they are not officially in the World Cup just yet, Gregg Berhalter and his team come into this contest on Wednesday knowing that at worst they could drop into fourth, meaning that a trip to the finals would still be possible.

Even that scenario though seems like a stretch, as the Americans would have to lose by six or more goals for the Costa Ricans to overtake them on goal difference, while Mexico would need to gain at least a point versus El Salvador.

Stars and Stripes will come into this contest cautiously optimistic, perhaps because they were in a similar situation four years ago, needing a point from their final encounter, only to fall 2-1 to Trinidad and Tobago.

Team News

Joel Campbell scored his 23rd goal in a Costa Rican shirt on Sunday, which stood up as the game-winner, moving him into a tie for eighth all-time with Jorge Hernan Monge, and he can move into seventh alongside Walter Centeno should he find the back of the net on Wednesday.

Anthony Contreras notched his first international goal for Los Ticos last weekend, and Ian Lawrence made his first career appearance, replacing Bryan Oviedo.

Carlos Martinez also picked up his first cap, coming on for Keysher Fuller for the final 17 minutes against La Selecta.

Three Costa Rican internationals who were called up for this qualifying window currently play their club football in the United States.

Midfielder Randall Leal is a mainstay at Nashville SC, Ronald Matarrita features for FC Cincinnati, and Francisco Calvo has had a strong start to the season with the San Jose Earthquakes.

Christian Pulisic had quite the afternoon on Sunday, scoring a hat trick for the US in their emphatic victory over Panama, Paul Arriola picked up a goal and an assist, Antonee Robinson had two assists and Jesus Ferreira scored his first of the qualifying campaign.

Kellyn Acosta made his 50th appearance for the Americans last weekend, Gianluca Busio has a chance to hit double digits in caps on Wednesday and Jordan Morris played in his 45th match for the national team, replacing Tyler Adams in the final 20 minutes.

Shaquell Moore replaced DeAndre Yedlin in defence versus Panama, Luca de la Torre was the preferred choice in midfield, starting over Kellyn Acosta, while Paul Arriola and Ferreira began that match alongside Pulisic, with Ricardo Pepi and Tim Weah relegated to the bench.

Costa Rica possible starting lineup:
Navas; Chacon, Calvo, Vargas, Matarrita, Fuller; Martinez, Tejeda, Borges, Contreras; Campbell

USA possible starting lineup:
Horvath; Bello, Zimmerman, Palmer-Brown, Cannon; Musah, Adams, Busio; Pefok, Weah, Arriola
