17/18 Champions League Preview | Matchday 4 | Maribor (H)
October 31, 2017 Gary Fulcher

Liverpool play host to Maribor on Wednesday evening – 7.45pm kick off UK time – knowing that a victory would put us on eight points with two games remaining, as we look to go (at least) one better than our last appearance in this competition in 2014/15 when we finished 3rd with five points and failed to make it to the knock-out stages.

The Reds sit joint top with five points, alongside Spartak Moscow with Sevilla a further point behind in 3rd, with the Spaniards hosting the Russian outfit on Wednesday evening before welcoming Liverpool on November 21st.

Maribor suffered a 0-7 defeat to Liverpool on Matchday 3, so it will be interesting to see how they set up at Anfield, knowing that a defeat combined with a win by Spartak in Spain will mean the best they can hope for would be a 3rd place finish and entry into the Europa League.
