My call: Liverpool could hardly ask for a better match-up to bounce back from the disappointment of the draw in Lyon last Wednesday. They played very well in France (bar the first ten minutes) and should have won. When Rafa really needs a result, he often gets it, and with Birmingham unlikely to pose much of an attacking threat, I can’t see any other result tonight than a comfy home win (which I have bet on, full-bore).
Prediction: Liverpool 3-0 Birmingham City
I’m also going to stick my neck right out and predict goals by Yossi Benayoun, Lucas (!!) and David Ngog.
What say you?
