Already 3-0 down after the first leg, the sensible option may be for Liverpool to focus on Sunday’s final Premier League clash at home to Wolves.
This is particularly the case as injuries stack up and priorities become more defined.
Only 14 outfield players were put through their paces by Andreas Kornmayer, which suggests a heavily rotated side will be required for the second leg.
It is likely that no precautions are being taken, and fringe figures could expect to start against the Liga champions.
There is even the prospect of 19-year-old striker Rhian Brewster making the squad, with the uncapped youngster part of a threadbare group in training.
