Sparta Prague v Liverpool Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 5.45pm UK Time, Thursday 7th March 2024

 

After finishing at the top of their Europa League group, tournament favourites Liverpool will be confident of getting their two-legged last-sixteen tie against Sparta Prague off to a positive start in the Czech capital on Thursday evening.

 

Winless in last eleven

Having edged past Nottingham Forest with a last-minute goal deep into stoppage time in their last Premier League outing, Liverpool sit one point clear at the summit of the table and are still aiming for an unprecedented quadruple. Nevertheless, while they are still favourites to win the Europa League, they didn’t dominate in the group stages as much as expected with away defeats at Toulouse and Union SG, while they are winless in their last eleven knockout stage games on the road in this tournament.

 

Evenly-fought

The Reds do head into this clash on the back of a six-match winning run and confidence will be high ahead of this trip to Czechia, however this certainly won’t be a walk in the park for Jurgen Klopp’s men and the chances are that this could be a very evenly-fought encounter.

 

Second in group

Sparta Prague finished second to winners Rangers in Europa League Group C and they needed a second-leg comeback against Galatasaray in the last-32 round in order to make it to this stage of the competition. Under their current name, Sparta have only made it into the quarter-finals of the tournament once before and they head into this match on the back of a consecutive win and draw against bitter rivals Slavia Prague.

 

Defensive solidity

Sparta haven’t leaked more than a single goal on home soil in any competitive outing since September and there’s every chance that this defensive solidity will continue on Thursday evening against a Reds side who haven’t been travelling well in this tournament. Klopp has certain selection dilemmas to contend with ahead of his side’s weekend clash with Premier League title rivals Manchester City and as such, the visitors may well be happy enough to leave the Czech capital with a share of the spoils before finishing the job on home soil.
