Team News

Maribor
Liverpool
  • Maribor may revert back to the 4-2-3-1 formation that earned them a decent draw against Spartak Moscow in their group opener after losing 3-0 to Sevilla last time out in the competition.
  • Marko Suler and Denis Sme are both still sidelined for the home side, but Luka Zahovic and Dare Vrsic, who both missed out against Sevilla, are fit again and available for selection here.
  • Liverpool can call on the services of Joe Gomez after he missed their last Champions League match through suspension. After starting against Manchester United on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp may instead turn to Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back on Tuesday.
  • Sadio Mane is ruled out for the rest of the month with a hamstring injury, which is a big blow for the away side. Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are pushing for game time if Klopp looks to rotate from Saturday's 0-0 draw with United.
  • Loris Karius will return between the sticks after being selected as Liverpool's goalkeeper for the Champions League.

Prediction

  • Maribor have one point after two matches in group E and are favourites to finish bottom.
  • Liverpool have drawn their opening two matches and must now use this double header against Maribor to enhance their chances of progressing to the knockout phase of the competition.
  • Liverpool have only won one of their last eight matches in all competitions and haven't won away from home in the group stage of a UEFA competition since November 2015 (vs Rubin Kazan in the Europa League).
  • Maribor have not won any of their seven European home matches in the Champions League and Liverpool don't deserve to go through if they fail to win on Tuesday.

  • I'm glad they didn't score more goals, the scorers probably would have had 3 surnames.

  • its hilarious how liverpool puts 7, firmino and salah have 2 goals and one assist and they still dont get a 10, but messi like 15 min into the game w nothing to show for but couple dribbles already has a 9..

  • @edemex Did you ever watch Messi play or just here to see how many points he get? Is the point that important to you? And which game he showed nothing but got 9???

  • @edemex Isn't it pass accuracy that matters?

  • Liverpool are going to be a nightmare for anyone. Let's be real here. Even Madrid or Barcelona could get shredded on the break by Liverpool

  • @Champion- Definitely, but that has never been Klopp teams failings. You know far well against teams who sit back and wait for counter-attacking opportunities (that are good enough to take them, I mean, not Maribor) they will look lethargic and fail to create anything of note. Atletico Madrid and Juventus would love playing against Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona would not.

  • @Champion When Mane is fit yeah

  • well I guess that settles it then lol

  • have I been watching the wrong game? fck

  • chamberlain to get his debut goal

  • will Salah score - episode 1

  • @pyt55 Who cares...?

  • @neumi17 your point being...?

  • @pyt55 Point is that some people care more about Salahs potential outcome before a game than about how Liverpool plays. That why..

  • @neumi17 wow, guilty... so?!

  • Let's face it - there will be no surprise. As woeful as Liverpool can sometimes be, their win i safe bet here

  • @Zootball i disagree, you will be shocked today

  • @ibarix I am only shocked about you actually ...

  • @ibarix lol

  • 0-2

  • Liverpool will go for draw at Slovenia too.

  • watch Liverpool bottle it here haha

  • coutinho is up to decide it for liverpool without him, i'ld say that a draw was the major probability

  • Well, I think it will not be so easy for Liverpool. Maribor is a good team and can be dangerous specially at home. I would say 1:1.

  • 100 % win for Liverpool will demolish Maribor because they need this points I will say Maribor - Liverpool 1-5

  • @BestStats respect

  • @BestStats i would say 0-7

  • @pasopati Great prediction,you know your team well

  • @BestStats you are not serious, liverpool can't score 5 even at home

  • @ibarix LOLOL. Now don't you feel like a silly sausage.

  • @ibarix Now they do easily

  • 1-3 Liverpool
