The duo face last-chance saloons to secure wins key to achieving their objectives and Betfair have upped the price on them to win for new customers
While many teams are looking to their final league fixtures as a formality, with objectives sewn up and targets achieved, Liverpool and Barcelona cannot count themselves to be amongst the lucky few.
Indeed, 90 nervy minutes await the pair as they set out to ensure they achieve their objectives, with anything but a win not an option. Liverpool must defeat Middlesbrough to be absolutely certain of holding on to the fourth and final Champions League qualification place, staving off Arsenal’s challenge at the last hurdle.
Barcelona, meanwhile, know the fate of their La Liga title defence does not lie in their hands but instead in Real Madrid’s – Luis Enrique’s men will nevertheless be out to do their own bit in their clash with Eibar, a tie in which they remain heavy favourites for.
Here, odds on a Catalan victory, along with that of a Liverpool one over relegated Boro are short as expected, but Betfair are offering new customers the chance to profit big on these nerve-wracking clashes. Jurgen Klopp’s men have been boosted to 4/1 (5.0) with £10 max stake to earn their final win, while those looking for a new zero-risk, high reward option can instead turn to the 25/1 (26.0) offer with £1 max stake.
In turn, Barcelona have been boosted to 3/1 (4.0) to secure the win. To take up any of these quotes, simply register using the link provided and place your bet at the usual odds. If they win, then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value after the final whistle. Winnings paid in free bets. T&C's apply.
Klopp can cement his status amongst the Anfield faithful by returning the Reds to the Champions League by seeing them to only their second top-four finish in the last eight seasons. A fifth win in as many games, in which they’ve scored at least two goals each time, over their upcoming relegated opponents Middlesbrough certainly looks a formality for a free-flowing Liverpool.
Toothless in attack – attempting the fewest shots in total and shots on target this season in the Premier League – and susceptible at the back, the guests look easy fodder for their goal-hungry hosts. And while the 25/1 (26.0) shot with £1 max stake looks tempting and an immediate path to profit, the 4/1 (5.0) offer with £10 max stake could lead to far greater payout for the bold new Betfair customer.
While Barcelona depend greatly on Malaga to defeat Real Madrid in order to clinch their third straight La Liga title, they can at least do their bit with their sixth consecutive win over Eibar. They’ve notched 16 goals against the Basques, conceding just one, in that period and there seems little standing in the way of the defending champions notching their 12th home win in a row.
Given the necessary impetus to surge to the finish line first by news of Luis Enrique’s resignation and then their El Clasico victory over Madrid in April, Barcelona have put together eight straight wins including landslides over Osasuna, Villarreal and Las Palmas that means the Catalans have notched 112 goals already this term – only three shy of their best-ever haul in the 2012-13 season.
Eibar’s impotency against Barcelona is not better illustrated than coach Jose Luis Mendilibar record of losing 12 of his 14 La Liga games as manager against Barcelona, never leaving the Camp Nou with a point and ensuring the 3/1 (4.0) offer to back a home win is unmissable for new Betfair customers.
