Bit early, but I'm board, so there.

Domestic honours (most recent triumph in brackets)
League title: 26 (2013)
Finnish Cup: 11 (2011)
continue to step up their pre-season preparations by travelling to Finland to face HJK Helsinki a week before the campaign kicks off.
The Reds won three and drew one of their summer tour matches and will be keen to maintain that strong record at the Olympic Stadium.
A friendly at the same venue 25 years ago was the last meeting between the two sides, with Ray Houghton and David Burrows scoring in a 2-0 win.http://www.liverpoolfc.com/fixtures2015/first-team/hjk-helsinki-v-liverpool-8425/next-match-preview
The match is I believe to be played at the Olympic Stadium and not at HJK's normal ground, the Sonera Stadium with has a capacity of 10,770.
You can see both stadia here:
They are currently mid season in Finland, so this will not be an easy match, but it should be.
1 HJK Helsinki
2 RoPS Rovaniemi
3 SJK Seinäjoki
4 IFK Mariehamn
5 FC Inter Turku
6 HIFK Helsinki
As said should be a good test, and maybe the un-numbered Benteke may get a game, so it will be interesting to see how the game play is changed.
