The World Cup has ended and it is three weeks until the major European football leagues begin again, but there are still plenty of fixtures to bet on at All sides have now begun their pre-season preparations and in the coming days some big names are in action.

Liverpool, who have agreed a deal to sign Alisson from Roma to be their first-choice goalkeeper, have already begun their fitness-building with three friendlies against local clubs Chester, Tranmere Rovers and Bury. While results are clearly not important at this stage, Jurgen Klopp’s men have scored 10 times and are unbeaten, though Loris Karius made another mistake in their second game and this may have accelerated the negotiations for Alisson, who was Brazil’s No 1 this summer at the World Cup.

Later today the Reds head to Ewood Park to play Blackburn Rovers for their final game before heading to America for the International Champions Cup, where they are scheduled to face Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Rovers were promoted from League One last season after finishing second and will see this as an opportunity to test themselves against top-class opposition as they make the step up to the Championship. Regardless, Liverpool are 1.35 to get the win in Lancashire, with plenty of other betting options – including the correct scoreline – available with Tipbet.

Elsewhere, Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers, who have spent heavily in recent transfer windows and are widely tipped to be pushing for a mid-table finish, face Ajax in what should be an interesting encounter. Their Dutch opponents have just re-signed Daley Blind from Manchester United as they look to build on their second place finish in last year’s Eredivisie and challenge PSV Eindhoven.

Wolves are favourites for this afternoon’s 15:00 (CET) match at 2.05, though their Dutch opponents (2.80) have the quality to do damage at the Bescot Stadium in Walsall, which is a local stadium for the English club. In total Tipbet have 91 markets to enjoy – these can be found here.
