Bet365 is going all out for the Capital One Cup Semi-Finals next week. The world famous online sportsbook will not only be offering some cracking odds on these two League Cup semi-finals, but will also offer live streaming of the games.
Live streaming of both the super semi-finals is available across the globe, barring the United Kingdom, USA, Ireland, Japan, Middle East and North Africa. What a great day to be watching football in continental, and Northern Europe!
So, what matches are lined up? First, on Tuesday, Liverpool take on Premier League leaders Chelsea, at Anfield. After finishing second last season, Liverpool’s disappointing campaign this year is in major need of a boost. What better way to kick-start their 2015 than by taking a first leg win over Chelsea? The Blues themselves are in unstoppable form. They are on course to do the Quadruple, although in all likelihood, they won’t be that successful. Chelsea are red hot favourites to progress over the two-legged semi-final, but that doesn’t necessarily guarantee that Liverpool won’t nick the first leg at home.
In the other firstleg tie a day later (Wednesday, January 21), Tottenham Hotspur (who aren’t on such bad form themselves) will be hoping to put a dent in the League One side’s dream of cup glory. Of course, lower league teams ending up in cup semi-finals, and cup finals is not without precedent. Even so, one would imagine it would be tough for Nigel Clough’s Blades to get a result at White Hart Lane. A score draw could set them up nicely for the return fixture at Bramall Lane, in South Yorkshire, though.
As well as the first two matches, Bet365 will also be streaming both second leg matches on Tuesday, January 27, and Wednesday, January 28. Players need only have a funded account to be able to watch both of these great Capital One Cup matches live, at Bet365.
Whilst you’re there, you might as well have a punt on the matches, too. Bets on the first round of games are now being taken, with Bet365 offering a generous 3.25 for a Liverpool win, 2.15 for a Chelsea victory, and 3.40 for the draw in the first leg. Spurs are also favourites at 1.30 to beat 9.00 outsider Sheffield United, and there are odds of 5.50 for the draw in the other first leg game.
