Liverpool will finally end their long wait as Champions League anthem will once again be heard by the Anfield faithful after 4 years.
The last CL game at Anfield ended in a defeat at the hands of Fiorentina back in 2009-2010 season when Benitez was in charge.
However, the merseysiders are surely favorites to beat CL debutant Ludogorets at home.
Reds suffered a shocking defeat at the weekend against Aston Villa in the premier league and will like to make amends tomorrow.
As far as the team news is concerned, Brendan Rodgers will be without several key stars. Sturridge is sidelined for another week or so. On the other hand, New summer signing fro Bayer Leverkusen Emre Can is suspended (also injured) for the fixture.
Markovic will also serve his European suspension after getting sent off last season in Europa League semi final’s second leg.
Moreover, James Pearce have confirmed via his twitter account that Liverpool will not have Joe Allen as well.
“#LFC set to be without Joe Allen again tomorrow night. Welshman hopes to be fit for West Ham on Saturday”
So for the Champions League fixture against Ludogorets, Rodgers is lacking the quality depth because of injuries and suspensions to key players.
Still, Reds have enough firepower to see off the challenge. Whether BR will opt for 4-3-3 with Lucas coming in or a 4-2-3-1 without him, we shall see.
