Liverpool have it all to do when they welcome Augsburg in a pulsating Europa League round of 32 tie. Ahead of the kick-off, we take a look at the Predicted Liverpool lineup vs Augsburg.
First leg ended in a 0-0 draw for The Reds, thus the draw is at a very precarious stage as the Bundesliga side can win the tie even with a 1-1 scoreline thanks to the away goal rules.
Liverpool had the weekend off as they are no longer in the FA Cup, and it will allow Jurgen Klopp to pick his strongest lineup tonight when his young side takes on Augsburg.
Predicted Liverpool lineup vs Augsburg
Klopp has established a consistent look about his starting XI in recent weeks. Kolo Toure, Mamadou Sakho have been the mainstays in central defense with able support from Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno. The same back-four will be in place tonight against Augsburg.
Klopp has opted to go with a 4-3-3 formation, which would see the trio of Milner-Henderson-Can operate in midfield. Can has looked shaky in few of the games, but Milner’s presence and his will to track back evens out any flaw in Liverpool’s midfield.
Up front, it will be another game and perhaps another test for Daniel Sturridge’s form and fitness. The injury-prone striker scored on his comeback against Aston Villa, and fans will be hopeful to see him to be fit and score crucial goals.
