Trabzonspor Price Falls As Gerrard And Torres Miss Europa Qualifier
Trabzonspor have fallen to 8/5 ahead of tonight’s Europa League second leg against Liverpool after punters reacted to news that both Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard will be missing for the Reds.
Bookmakers have reported a surge of cash on the Turkish side yesterday, who trial 1-0 on aggregate, to win on the night, with the home side now at a best price of 2/1 with Totesport and 19/10 with Boylesports, Bodog and Extrabet.
Liverpool will be without their star duo this evening with Gerrard suffering from a back problem and Torres omitted from the team by manager Roy Hodgson, who has raised concerns with the Spaniard’s overall fitness.
Javier Mascherano will be missing as he continues to look for a move away from the club, as will Daniel Agger (concussion) and Maxi Rodriguez (illness).
That news has seen Liverpool drift noticeable over the last 48 hours, falling from odds-on earlier this week to a best price of 13/8 to win on the night with Bet365.
Liverpool remain odds-on to qualify, best price 1/4 with Bet365 and Stan James, whilst Trabzonspor ate 13/10 with Totesport.
