Betting & Match Odds
Liverpool are priced at odds of winning 1/4 according to dabblebet , while a draw is available at 17/4. A win for Torino is priced at 13/2.
The game will mark the first instance in which the Reds have lined up in front of their own fans this summer, with new arrivals Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson and Naby Keita set to experience the welcome of Anfield for the first time since signing for the club.
Liverpool also come off the backs of an emphatic 5-0 victory over Napoli at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday that saw new goalkeeper Alisson handed his debut.
The Reds had five different goalscorers in Mohamed Salah, Georginio Wijnaldum, Alberto Moreno, Daniel Sturridge and James Milner, with Roberto Firmino looking fresh in the front-three despite only just returning from his post-World Cup break.
Klopp has lost just one of his eight pre-season matches this summer (an International Champions Cup match against Borussia Dortmund) and has enjoyed fine results, including a 4-1 thrashing of Manchester United in Michigan.
The trio of Salah, Sadio Mane and Firmino are fresh and raring to go ahead of the Premier League opener against West Ham, while captain Henderson has also returned following his successful World Cup duties with England.
Like Liverpool, Torino have also been active in the transfer market – securing the services of M’Baye Niang from AC Milan on a permanent move following his loan last season.
