Dirk Kuyt returns to the Liverpool starting line-up tonight, along with Lucas as Albert Riera is dropped for his comments about Rafa Benitez today.

Liverpool trail 1-0 from last Thursday’s first leg in France, in which Eden Hazard’s 85th minute strike was the difference between the two teams.

Alberto Aquilani has a virus and Maxi Rodriguez is ineligible. Ryan Babel keeps his place in the line-up after some promising performances of late.

It’s exactly the same line-up that started the first leg last week.

Liverpool: Reina, Insua, Carragher, Agger, Johnson, Mascherano, Lucas, Kuyt, Babel, Gerrard, Torres. Subs: Cavalieri, Benayoun, Kyrgiakos, Ngog, Degen, El Zhar, Kelly.
