Bolton to Win
Liverpool U21 arrive at the University of Bolton Stadium after suffering the ignominy of a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City U21. Their preparation could not have been any worse after their 4-0 dismantling from Rochdale. On the other hand, Bolton will want to deliver a similar thrashing after accumulating two successive wins in League One. Confidence increases in their ability as the young Reds have not won against professional sides in their last eight attempts.
Total Goals: Over 3.5
Ian Evatt has to be credited for converting Bolton into an attacking unit. With 20 goals in League One, they are the joint second-highest scorers. Port Vale suffered a 3-2 defeat at their hands last time of asking and Liverpool U21 should suffer similar humiliation. The Mighty Reds were ineffective in their 4-0 defeat to Rochdale and Bolton should be able to re-enact that result. We are expecting a high scoring affair, given the respective attacking and defensive instincts of both sides.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Bolton's attack and Liverpool's defence should result in an excess of scoring opportunities. The League One outfit should get on the scoreboard and we expect the young charges from Kirkby to do the same. While the Wanderers attack is impressive, they leave too much at the back and can be punished. They have conceded 1.4 goals on average in league meetings this season and we are predicting the Reds to profit from this.
Bolton vs Liverpool U21: Team News and Match Preview
Promotion from League Two was warranted for the Wanderers and Ivan Evatt will want more of the same. His charges have impressed in League One and find themselves four-point adrift of pole position after 11 rounds of action. They are flying high on their attacking output, which is the joint second-highest in the league. However, if they are to realize their ambitions, Evatt will have to shore up their porous defence which has conceded fifteen goals.
Barry Lewtas has overseen his charges claim two wins in three games in order to arrest their losing record in the Professional Development League. Manchester City U21 claimed a comfortable 2-0 win at their expense and a similar but more gut-wrenching result awaits them on their trip to Bolton. The young Reds have not been able to hold their own against professional club outfits, and their losing streak now stretches to the 2019/20 EFL Trophy.
