      Analysis: Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion (13 December 2015)
      « Reply #1 on: December 11 2015, 12:44 »

      Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion face at Anfield, in a match for the 16th round of the Premier League. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history indicates total balance between these two teams, since there is a record of 2 wins for each team in the last 4 matches. However, the last time these teams met at this stadium was on 04‑10‑2014, in a match for the Premier League, Liverpool won by (2‑1). The goals of the match were scored by A. Lallana (45' ) and J. Henderson (61' ), for Liverpool, and by S. Berahino (56' ), for West Bromwich Albion. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

      Analysis of Liverpool

      The home team is currently in the 8th position of the league, with 23 points won, after 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Swansea City, by (1‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Newcastle United, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses in away matches, with 23 goals scored and 12 conceded; against 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 19 goals scored and 17 conceded. In their last match, for the UEFA Europa League, they got an away tie against Sion by (0‑0). In the last 7 home league matches Liverpool has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 21 possible. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 0‑0 (3 out of 7 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 5 of their 15 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Liverpool usually likes to control matches through ball position, using short passes to move up the field. One of the best qualities of the home team is their good performance on set pieces, both defensive and offensive. Two players stand out in this squad: Benteke and Coutinho. The Belgium usually creates panic amongst the opponent’s central defenders and the Brazilian usually creates most of the team’s offensive moves. But in this match the coach cannot count on Sturridge, Flanagan, Sakho, Gomez and Ings, who are injured.

      Analysis of West Bromwich

      The away team is currently in the 13th position of the league, with 19 points won, after 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against West Ham United, by (1‑1). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Tottenham Hotspur, by (1‑1). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 20 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 20 goals scored and 22 conceded. In the last 7 away league matches West Bromwich Albion has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 21 possible. In their away matches there are a few frequent results: at half‑time 0‑0 (4 out of 7 matches) and after the 90' 0‑1 (3 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 9 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 8 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      West Bromwich comes to this match after a home draw against Tottenham. Foster will not be able to help his teammates, since he is recovering from an injury. Venezuelan Rondón is the greatest offensive reference of the away team. It’s also important to notice that this is a strong team in set pieces, using the quality of Olsson and Evans.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that Liverpool will win. West Bromwich is a quality team, but the home team has the home advantage and a far superior squad. Therefore, Liverpool seems to have more arguments to win this match and win naturally.
