Analyzing the presented statistics, we observe a significant contrast between the form and performance of Liverpool and Everton.
Liverpool's busy schedule and results:
Liverpool, despite the busy schedule, does not seem to be slowing down, playing in both the Premier League and the Europa League. Their results over the last few matches are impressive. They have won 5 of their last 8 matches, drawn 2 and lost only 1. This includes matches in different competitions, which speaks to their adaptability. In these matches they scored 18 goals and conceded 9. The 3.4 goals on average per match figure stands out especially, which indicates an aggressive attacking style of play.
Everton, on the contrary, is experiencing difficulties: in the last 8 matches the team has won only 2 victories. They scored 9 and conceded 12, an average of 2.6 goals per match. Their form has been inconsistent and the stats suggest the team are struggling to find their rhythm.
Liverpool's possession stats, consistently above 50%, and expected goals (xG) demonstrate their dominance in matches played. Statistics on shots on goal and corners further confirm this opinion. Everton, although they had several matches with good possession and shots on goal, were unable to convert them into goals.
In the last three meetings between these teams, the advantage was on Liverpool's side: two wins and a draw in the last three meetings. Remarkably, Everton failed to score against Liverpool.
Liverpool have shown attacking prowess in recent matches that is hard to ignore. They score an average of 3.4 goals per match, which indicates a strong forward line. Given Everton's defensive instability, having conceded 12 goals in their last eight matches, Liverpool's chances of scoring more than once look very promising. Moreover, statistics from recent meetings further confirm this forecast. Considering that in previous matches Everton's defense did not show sufficient resistance to Liverpool's attacks, this bet seems profitable.
This forecast combines both attractive odds and Liverpool's current form, especially given Everton's recent defensive vulnerability. The potential for solid rewards with acceptable risk makes this forecast the most preferable.
Both teams, especially Liverpool, display a style of play that favors wide play, which usually results in corners. Liverpool, playing aggressively, often take corners, while Everton's potential counter-attacks could also lead to corners. Analyzing the statistics, you can see that in matches involving both teams there are a large number of corners. Given the expected pace and strategy of the game, betting on more than 9.5 corners seems justified.
