Next Up: Unirea Urziceni (a)

Liverpool FC vs Unirea Urziceni

Liverpool take a 1-0 lead into the second leg of this Europa League tie with the Romanian Champions, thanks to David Ngog’s late header at Anfield last week.

A tie against the winner of Lille vs Fenerbahce awaits the winner, with Rafa Benitez’s men eagerly chasing silverwear after a disappointing season.

Fernando Torres could start after returning from injury for the final 15 minutes on Sunday’s goalless bore draw with Manchester City in the Premier League.

The Reds continue to be without Glen Johnson, who is expected to return from a long-term injury next week, and Yossi Benayoun, who also played against Man City, could start.

Sotris Kyrgiakos is eligible to play despite his recent suspension for the two footed challenge on Everton’s Marouane Fellani recently.

The games gets underway at 6pm UK time.
