Football is the biggest sport to bet on, both offline and online, and among football fans and bettors, Liverpool is considered one of the most reliable options to place a bet on.

However, most football fans don’t dabble in gambling or betting, and just prefer to enjoy the game with their friends or family. For long-time Liverpool fans, we are going to celebrate one of Football’s greatest teams, by doing a retrospective on some of their best matches, and most famous victories.
Liverpool V Everton, April 1999
A game for the history books, between Liverpool and long-time rival team Everton. The game started out with Everton scoring the lead in the first minute, making it seem as if the game had been decided before it even began. But it soon became clear to the fans of both teams, that it would not be that simple, when Robbie Fowler equalized the score from a penalty shot. Fowler followed up his equalizer with another score, and Patrik Berger took the game to the next level with a third goal, scored from range.
The real star of the show though, to many was Steven Gerrard, who successfully defended, what should have been a goal-bound shot. The game ended with a score of 3:2, and is still considered by many fans to be one of Liverpool’s “we were there” moments.
Liverpool V Newcastle United, April 1996
In 2003, the 10 Season Awards held a vote by both the public and a panel of experts. The results unanimously voted Liverpool’s 1996 match against Newcastle United as the “Match of the Decade”. The match was also listed as the absolute best live broadcast match on Sky Sports’ 20th anniversary list. For all intents and purposes, this is one of the greatest matches in football history.
The score was even when Collymore tore the net with a left-foot strike. The strike was followed by the screams and shouts of tens of thousands of Liverpool fans in the stadium, and many more at home, raising the roof and singing Liverpool’s anthem, You’ll Never Walk Alone. The match ended on a score of 4:3, and has gone down in history as one of the greatest football matches ever played.
