our main tip:
Goal Over 2.5

FC Liverpool vs. Aston Villa FC 05.07.2020

As it stands, Liverpool have already been crowned champions. This is their first game back at Anfield following their crowning glory. Conversely, Aston Villa are at the other end of the spectrum, deep in a relegation battle. Inasmuch as Liverpool have already won the title, they will not necessarily let their foot off the pedal. They still want to give Merseyside even more reasons to smile and celebrate especially after the disastrous showing against Man City. They have won all their home games this season and that is something they will certainly want to maintain. Villa are fighting for their lives and will throw everything at Liverpool. This might make for an interesting encounter. We fancy there will be goals in the game and are going with Over 2.5 goals as our betting tip here.
