Liverpool and Chelsea Champions League predictions delivered by Michael Owen | Football | Sport
Liverpool host Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield, while Chelsea face a trip to France to face Lille.
But Michael Owen has only tipped one team to secure their first win in his predictions ahead of tonight’s Champions League action.
Liverpool vs Red Bull Salzburg
“Liverpool maintained their perfect domestic record at Bramall Lane at the weekend but, having lost at Napoli on Matchday One, the holders need to beat Salzburg at Anfield to get their Champions League defence back on track,” Owen told BetVictor.
“The Reds are unbeaten in their last 22 home European ties and have not conceded in the last five of those games.
“The Austrians can score goals and put six past Genk on Matchday One, but I hope to see another successful European Anfield night for Jurgen Klopp’s side.”
Lille vs Chelsea
“Lille have not won in their last nine home games in European competition and both they and Chelsea lost their opening group game without scoring,” he added.
“Both sides will be looking to kick-start their Champions League campaign, but I feel they will have to settle for a point apiece in northern France.”
