Last Tune-Up Before League Play Gets Underway Next Week

Published on August 9th, 2014 3:53 pm EST

The final tune-up game for both Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund will take place on Sunday as the two teams are slated to clash in a club friendly.

Liverpool is slated to begin their 2014-15 English Premier League campaign next Sunday when they take on Southampton at home. Liverpool, as always, is considered to be one of the favourites to win the EPL this season, despite the loss of striker Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

Borussia Dortmund, which made it to the Champions League final two seasons ago, will be beginning their league campaign one week later when they play host to Bayer Leverkusen in Bundesliga action. As always, Borussia Dortmund will be looking to keep pace this season with the Goliaths from Bayern Munich.

The club friendly between Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund doesn't mean anything, but don't be surprised if the teams give their starters a fair amount of action, given the close proximity to the start of league action.

Here are the odds for Sunday's tilt:

Liverpool, 2.05
Draw, 3.75
Borussia Dortmund, 3.20

Liverpool has the better odds of winning, but none of the three outcomes are better than even money.

As always, when betting on a club friendly keep in mind that the starters will likely not be playing the entire game, so take that into consideration.
