The draw for the group stages of the European Champions League takes place on Thursday evening and Liverpool know a draw or even a 0-1 defeat against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim would be good enough to earn the Reds a place back alongside Europe’s elite, following their 2-1 win in Germany last week.

Hoffenheim kicked off their Bundesliga campaign with a 1-0 win at home against Werder Bremen thanks to an 84′ goal from Kramarić, while Liverpool also ran out 1-0 winners courtesy of Sadio Mane’s 73′ strike.
