    Funny old game. Hold on for 3-2 yesterday and everyone would be buzzing going into this saying it was a great show of character to get the 3 points. Instead fairly doom and gloom.

    Don't expect too many changes

    Likely Gomez for TAA and Milner for Moreno.

    Would stick with TAA myself however they will probably not want to throw him in too much.

    Hopefully Hoffenheim come out to play and Mane/Salah/Firmino can put this tie to bed in first leg.

    I'd really like to go and put this to bed early the last thing we need is a tight game at Anfield with them knocking in away goals..

    Wouldn't be surprised if he plays the same 11

    There a attacking side and play a high line so should suit us , but have no misconceptions these are a tough draw .Good chance they will play 3 at the back and have your eye on Demirbay and Kramaric.

    There was debate by some of our ill informed fans about who had had a better season between us and Utd, us having this massive headache on its own without the two trophies they secured was enough to secure it for them. Not looking forward to this game game and it's potential fallout.

    Beat these by a couple of goals and we have 2 weeks to get some players in with champions league to offer. Massive game. I expect us to win with both teams scoring

    I wonder myself the bearing on this two legged tie has on transfer business. Is VVD waiting to see if LFC qualify before committing to LFC fully, will the club go in with another offer for Kieta and will Coutinho stay if CL is assured. Massive two games coming up.

    Its on BT Sports 2 anyway

    As already said this is a massive game (always was) but all the eye's will now be focusing on our failings at the back.

    I've no doubt we will score over there - hopefully bring a lead back to Anfield and see us go into the draw.

    Enjoy the trip to the lads of here travelling over.

    Phil Countinho hasn't traveled I see. I thought he wouldn't due to injury but people will just see it as another reason to add to the transfer speculation.

    The first leg at Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Tuesday night will be followed by a return clash at Anfield next Wednesday.

    Liverpool squad: Alexander-Arnold, Moreno, Lovren, Milner, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Can, Mane, Salah, Firmino, Kent, Solanke, Origi, Gomez, Klavan, Flanagan, Robertson, Matip, Grujic, Mignolet, Karius, Ward.

    No Sturridge. Interesting to see Flannagan in there. Four to miss out the match day squad likely Ward, Kent, Flanagan and one of Moreno or Robertson.

    Listened to a podcast last night saying Hoffenheim are a big side, very good with set-pieces.
    Nothing to worry about there them.

    This is going to be very tough for us, I'd take a draw back to Anfiekd right now. The amount of negativity around the club regarding the lack of incoming transfers and Coutinho wanting out cannot be discounted. We need to fight for our lives in this game tonight and make sure we're still in the tie in the second leg.
