The final match of this round of the FA Cup will be played on Monday when Wolves will play host to Liverpool. Wolves are coming off a tough loss at home against Crystal Palace but Liverpool are also coming off a loss against Manchester City. This will be a really exciting match to watch on Monday between two teams that are doing great in the Premier League.
Wolves were really bad in their home match against Crystal Palace on Wednesday and could not hope for anything more. They did hold off their opponents for the better part of the match but conceded twice in the last 15 minutes of the match to lose by 2-0. They have not been in very good shape lately, winning just once in their last four (1-2-1). Wolves are sitting 9th in the league table with 29 points, fairly safely above the relegation zone. They have been quite solid at home (4-5-2) but have lost five of their last seven there.
Liverpool missed a chance to make a huge leap in their quest for the title this season, as they fell by 1-2 in the crucial away match against Manchester City. They only managed to pull even at the hour mark but conceded another goal shortly after to eventually lose their first match after eight consecutive wins. Liverpool are still sitting at the top of the Premier League with 54 points, but are now just four ahead of Manchester City. They have been really great on the road in the Premier League (8-1-2) but lost all three away matches in the Champions League.
Free Betting Pick: Under 2.5 Goals (-106)
The two teams met a couple of weeks ago for the Premier League and Liverpool won by 2-0 in this venue to extend their dominance in this match-up (6-2-2). They have also been undefeated in this venue over the years (3-0-2) and the Under 2.5 Goals could have value here considering the fact that Wolves are usually very careful even in their losses.
