Today at 3pm Eastern sees the 2019 UEFA Super Cup take place between the Champions League winners Liverpool, and the Europa League winners Chelsea. Coverage is live on TNT.

Liverpool FC wins the Champions League

This will be the first time the competition has been played between two teams from England.

After the trophy has been passed around Spanish teams for most of the last decade, Liverpool will attempt to win the trophy for the fourth time and Chelsea the second.

To Lift the Trophy

The blues got their campaign off to a rough start at the weekend with a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester United. US star Christian Pulisic made his debut in the second half but was unable to stop the Red Devils.

Liverpool cantered past promoted side Norwich City with an easy 4-1 win in the EPL's opening match of the season. They go into this as strong favorites, with two more days rest pre-game.

Full Time Result

James Milner playing for Liverpool

There may be some value to be had in the first goalscorer market, shown below with odds from PointsBet New Jersey.

As Liverpool are favored in the match, their front three are somewhat limited in odds to net first, with all of Salah, Mane and Firminho listed under +450.

For some value, we'll take James Milner to score first at a juicy 11/1. The Liverpool midfielder bagged five goals last year and can score first in a Liverpool win.
