UEFA Champions League 2017/18 - Maribor vs Liverpool Preview

UEFA Champions League 2017/18 - Maribor vs Liverpool Preview

Liverpool have suffered a rut of form in September and October, winning just one of eight matches in all competitions, and Klopp believes they must be wary against the Slovenian PrvaLiga champions.

Lallana moved to Liverpool in a £25m deal in the 2014 summer transfer window under Brendan Rodgers but the England star had become a firm favourite of Jurgen Klopp. The one time Leeds United manager will take a tip from United counter-part Jose Mourinho and look to concede possession to their visitors, flood the passing lanes with bodies and hope that Brazilian forward Marcos Tavares or Bosnian attacker Jasmin Mesanovic can sneak one on the break or get on the end of a set-piece.

This is Liverpool's 10th Champions League campaign, and only their second appearance in the group stages in the past eight seasons.

Liverpool only managed to accrue two points from their opening group stage fixtures against Sevilla and Spartak Moscow respectively and now lie second in their group having scored more goals than the Russian outfit, who have also drawn both of their group games.

'We're confident. We're in a good moment. "It's the last place I would do things like this".

"The performance on Saturday should give us confidence".

New Orleans' special teams also had its worst moment of the season when it allowed Jamal Agnew to score on a 74-yard punt return. Kamara had 10 carries for 75 yards and four catches for 12 yards - plus a spectacular hurdle over Lions cornerback Darius Slay .

Unfortunately, Wales lost their last World Cup qualification game to Ireland and failed to qualify for the finals.

Joe Gomez has been in favour at right-back in recent weeks but I think we'll see Trent Alexander-Arnold come in tomorrow night with Nathaniel Clyne still sidelined with a hamstring injury.

"It's so important, they've had nine Champions League games so far-they chose the hard way! We need to be concentrated and fearless against a top team of a European league", he said.

There hasn't been a match with more than two goals scored during Maribor's last 15 home UEFA Champions League matches (includes qualifying).

He declared that from the games he has watched it is clear that Maribor are "an offensive-minded team" with "offensive players really strong, in style, keeping and protecting the ball".
