Six-time Champions League winner Liverpool Football Club will be heading to Birkenhead for the fourth year in a row as they prepare for the neighborhood to play a friendly against the Tranmere Rovers across Mersey shores. While Jürgen Klopp’s Reds faced a club from the fifth-rate National League in 2017, the “Super White Army” plays third-rate League One football this season. The stadium is expected to be sold out, on Tuesday there were only just under 1,000 remaining cards for the first appearance of the reigning premier class since the triumph in early June in Madrid against Tottenham. Many of the stars of that time will be missing on Thursday for various reasons. Nevertheless, the Reds bring a team with sonorous names on the square and are therefore unsurprisingly favorite.

This prove between Tranmere and Liverpool the odds of various bookmakers. By contrast, the “Whites” are already a bit further in preparation for the new season. Liverpool will then only play another friendly match in England. On Saturday, the Premier League club meets Bradford City (League Two). Afterwards, the 18-time English Champion will be challenged much harder in the International Champions Cup with opponents such as Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting Lisbon than on Thursday.
Tranmere vs Liverpool is therefore our prediction for the tip on over 3.5 goals. The first competitive match awaits the Reds on August 4, when it comes to the National Triple Champion Manchester City in the Community Shield (English Supercup). The Rovers start their League One campaign one day earlier against Rochdale.
Tranmere – Statistics & Current Form
Within twelve months, it went from the so-called non-League (5th league) high up in the League One (3rd league). Two climbs in a row for the “Super White Army” and each with a won playoff finale in Wembley – Tranmere is on fire. The Scottish coach Micky Mellon led the club for the first time since 2014 back in the third division. Then it had 2015 – when the Rovers after 94 years from the Football League descended – did not look at all.
The double climb triggered an incredible euphoria in Birkenhead, so that the “Super White Army” could sell over 4,200 season tickets for the new season. Among the season ticket holders is certainly the Premier League referee Mike Dean, who excelled both after the semi-final triumph over the Forest Green Rovers, and then in the final against Newport as celebration beast and new mascot of the club.
In the League One, however, the Rovers have to compete with a proper handicap. Top scorer James Norwood left the club in the summer on a free transfer to championship relegated Ipswich Town. Currently it is hard to imagine how the Rovers want to replace the 30 Norwood goals. Ishmael Miller, who played for Man City in the Premier League years ago, is a candidate. However, the 32-year-old missed the entire second half of the season in the promotion year. Paul Mullin was also in the Rovers team last season, scoring the only goal in a 1-2 match-friendly defeat by Scottish first division club Livingston at the St Andrews University training camp. In the transfer market, it was hectic weeks for coach Mellon. Darren Potter, Stefan Payne, Corey Blackett-Taylor, Calum Woods and George Ray are all likely to get the chance to prove themselves to home audiences.
Payne also saw the arrival of a new striker who only scored twice for Shrewsbury and the Bristol Rovers last season. In the years before, however, he underpinned his scorer qualities. If Tranmere finds a new striker with Norwood potential, it can not be ruled out that the troop can once again play for promotion.
