On March 19, at a special meeting of members of the Football Federation of England and club leaders, it was decided to extend the suspension of English football until April 30 due to coronavirus (COVID-19). Against this background, bookmakers have increased the likelihood that Liverpool will be declared the champion of the Premier League in the 2019/20 season without having played any more match.
If before March 19, bets on this were accepted with a coefficient of 8 to 1, then after the decision to extend the quarantine until April 30, the coefficient decreased to 7 to 2.
In the Premier League table, Liverpool is ahead of Manchester City in the lead by 25 points. At the same time, Man City still has a purely theoretical chance of winning the league.
