The line-ups are in ahead of the Champions League fixture between Ludogorets Razgrad and Liverpool…

Liverpool are in Bulgaria tonight looking to prolong their participation in this season’s Champions League.

In all likelihood the Reds will need to win both of their final two games in Group B to progress to the knock-out stages.

Kop boss Brendan Rodgers is again without strikers Daniel Sturridge and Mario Balotelli so Rickie Lambert continues up front.

Elsewhere, there are starts for Kolo Toure, Lucas Leiva and Jordan Henderson with Dejan Lovren, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana the men to miss out from the team that started Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Ludogorets, meanwhile, are without forward Roman Bezjak so manager Georgi Dermendzhiev will be hopeful Dutch winger Virgil Misidjan can keep up his decent goal scoring record.

The Eagles caused Liverpool a number of problems at Anfield on Matchday One and the Reds will need to keep tabs on midfield creative force Marcelinho.

The game is scheduled for a 7.45pm GMT kick-off and will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports.


Liverpool: Mignolet, Manquillo, Skrtel, Toure, Johnson, Lucas, Allen, Henderson, Gerrard, Sterling, Lambert.

Subs: Jones, Lovren, Coutinho, Moreno, Lallana, Borini, Can.


Ludogorets: Stoyanov, Minev, Moti, Terziev, Caicara, Alexandrov, Espinho, Abalo, Dyakov, Marcelinho, Misidjan.

Subs: Borjan, Barthe, Aleksandrov, Anicet, Wanderson, Quixada, Hamza.
