Arizona Diamondbacks vs Los Angeles Dodgers
Walker Buehler has been the exclamation point on the Dodgers’ phenomenal postseason push, and you only have to look at his 12 strikeout performance against the Rockies last week to realise how crucial he is to LA’s World Series hopes. The 24-year old gets the start today on the road, and after allowing only one earned run and striking out nine against the Diamondbacks three weeks ago, make sure you bank on another repeat performance.
Bentleigh Greens vs Heidelberg United
Bit of a coin flip here, especially with the market so tight. Both of these sides recorded convincing 4-0 victories over their respective opponents during the Round of 16, setting us up for an exciting quarter-final showdown tonight. Bentleigh have certainly had the tougher run up until this point however, earning a 1-0 victory over Wellington Phoenix back in August. They also haven’t allowed a goal in their last two games.
Liverpool vs Chelsea
This if the first of two matches between these two clubs this week, with both Liverpool and Chelsea squaring off in the Premier League on Sunday morning. The Carabao Cup is the focus on Thursday though, and although both managers won’t play full-strength sides, Liverpool’s depth should get them over the line, especially if Daniel Sturridge receives another chance in attack.
