      Thing is though I don’t think the second leg will be at Anfield due to the travel restrictions from Germany to the UK, unless they of course are lifted by then, but there is no guarantee of that, so F**k knows where it will be played ?

      Not that it matters much because there will no fans there anyway, so it makes no difference where it’s played from our point of view, but we do need to score tonight regardless  of where the second leg is played, despite our domestic form I’m fairly confident we can win this tonight, Leipzig don’t have any buses  to park so this could well be a attack V attack affair with plenty of goals and see who blinks first,

      As biased as biased can be I’d take us to win every time against a side coming at us, the quality we have will see us through despite not being at full strength, BUT, we will need a strong midfield two bona fide CB’s and plenty of pace, and if at all possible back to the Rock N roll football of a couple of seasons back where we steam rollered our way to the final.

      This Won’t be for the faint hearted !

      If both legs are at a neutral ground why not just have a one off game?

      I get that tv companies have their stake but surely it’s better if players are not on planes travelling to another country, especially when celebrating goals is considered a threat to the pandemic.
      Or maybe tv contracts are more important than spreading the virus. Who knows.

      Mate, you are talking far too much sense. This is UEFA, modern day football.

      Totally about TV money.

      But I don't mind there being two games instead of one. Always up for watching the Reds.

      The way we've been playing at home recently might be no harm to be on neutral ground for our "home" leg.
      Really hoping we but in a decent performance tonight.
      And keep the clanger count low.

      I think it’s more likely we will see Hendo with Kabak again

      I think if we went with Kabak & Phillips or Davies at CB, they would be more cautious seeing Hendo at DM. That just might take a bit of pressure off our midfield.
      I was going to go with a 1-1 draw, but just cant do it. Has to be a win for me, so 1-2 the red men.
      We need to just put everything behind us. Treat this as a whole new season starting tonight. Go full on and get them pressed back under pressure.  Everyone on 100 % and like last season, not many will cope with us, including these.

      Have a sneaky suspicion we'll get an easy win tonight. If we don't....I may swerve the forum for awhile because I imagine it will be full meltdown mode. Don't care who plays, just go out and kick their ass.

      Think a goal is of the most importance tonight. Followed by no injury and not conceeding more then 2 if we only get one.

      I think taking a 2-1 or 3-2 etc back to Anfield leaves us in a good position. Going back to Anfield with 0 is a disaster

      Not going for any prediction, learnt my lesson v Leicester I got it totally the wrong way round! I just want us to take whatever chances we get, keep it tight at the back, stick together, support each other and put that smile back on Jürgen’s face! Most pundits give us next to no chance, so let’s just smash it!

      Went 4-1 here. Blind stupidity or not, feeling confident we’ll stroll this.

      We're not playing at Anfield in the 2nd leg by the sounds of it.

      Your right about the 0,an away goal is vital & I recon we’ll score a few tonight.

      I deffo think that Phillips and Kabak should try and build up a partnership, I think its the only way forward personally. We need to get that energy back into our midfield with Hendo in that 6 role until Fabinho comes back. That way we may see a better Tiago cos let's be honest he doesn't work playing that No.6 role. Play Jones aswel where he can make those forward runs then if Tiago has to drop a little deeper to help out Hendo and the full backs then so be it.

      There's a risk free bet on paddy power for this if its anybodies bag.

      Different competition and a hopefully a change of furtunes. Expecting goals and just hope we get a few of them to bring back to Anfield.
