Over 2.5 Goals - 4/7

With a place in the Europa League round of 16 secured, and a hectic festive schedule coming up, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is likely to rest some of his star players for Thursday's trip to Belgium.

Liverpool have won four of their first five matches in Group E and their games have delivered plenty of entertainment, with 3-1 and 4-0 victories over LASK and a 5-1 rout of Toulouse at Anfield.

The Reds' only slip-up came in their matchday-four fixture away to Toulouse, where they lost 3-2, and over 2.5 goals looks a solid first selection for a Bet Builder.

Union Saint Gilloise, beaten 2-0 at Anfield in their second group game, still have a slim chance of qualifying for the knockout stages but they need to beat Liverpool and hope that Toulouse are defeated by LASK.

The Belgians, who reached the Europa League quarter-finals last season, must be positive and they have won their last seven home matches in all competitions.

All seven of those games featured over 2.5 goals and Liverpool, even if they are not at full strength, have the attacking quality to contribute to a high-scoring contest. 
 

Harvey Elliott to Score Anytime - 4/1

Harvey Elliott has played every minute of Liverpool's first five Europa League group matches although the midfielder has had limited opportunities in the Premier League this term.

He made a massive impact as a substitute on Saturday, scoring a cracking injury-time winner against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park to take the Reds to the top of the table.

That was Elliott's first goal of the 2023/24 campaign but he is not shy when it comes to having a pop at goal. He averages 2.6 shots per game in the Europa League and had eight attempts in 150 minutes in the EFL Cup ties against Leicester and Bournemouth.

The youngster scored Champions League group-stage goals against Rangers and Ajax last season and he looks a decent price to add to his tally in Belgium.
 

Cameron Puertas Over 0.5 Shots on Target - 2/5

Swiss winger Cameron Puertas is a huge creative influence for Union Saint Gilloise, contributing three goals and 10 assists in his 16 league starts this season.

It may be worth boosting the Bet Builder odds by adding Puertas to have a shot on target as he averages 3.4 attempts at goal in the Pro League – the same rate as Union's top scorer Mohammed Amoura.

Puertas had three shots, one of them on target, in the 0-0 draw in Toulouse on matchday five and he racked up four efforts, two on target, in his 68-minute appearance against Sporting Charleroi at the weekend. 

Union Saint Gilloise team news

The hosts have no fresh injury concerns. Mohammed Amoura should start up front after scoring twice in Sunday's league victory against Sporting Charleroi.

Liverpool team news

The Reds are missing the injured Andy Robertson, Thiago and Stefan Bajcetic while centre-back Joel Matip has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Diogo Jota is approaching a return to action and Alexis Mac Allister will be assessed after missing the weekend win at Crystal Palace.

Union Saint Gilloise v Liverpool stats

Union Saint Gilloise have won four of their last five home games by a 2-1 scoreline.

Liverpool have scored six goals in the 80th minute or later of their last five matches.
