LIVERPOOL SUBS: James Milner, Naby Keita, Adrian, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Konstantinos Tsimikas, Xherdan Shaqiri, Divock Origi, Ben Davies, Rhys Williams, Harvey Davies, Neco Williams.

LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nathaniel Phillips, Ozan Kabak, Andy Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum; Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota.

RB Leipzig need to take the game to the Reds this evening given their two-goal deficit. The German outfit were off the boil defensively in the first leg and were duly punished. Julian Nagelsmann’s side have been in great form since their defeat, reeling off four wins on the bounce in all competitions, including a 3-0 win over Freiburg last time out. It will take a flawless effort tonight to topple Liverpool though.

Liverpool hold a 2-0 lead heading into the contest courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in the first leg. The Reds have endured a miserable run of form in the Premier League, losing six out of their last seven games. Jurgen Klopp and his team will feel the Champions League offers respite, and considering their form at Anfield, they may not mind playing in Hungary this evening as they look to secure a quarter-final berth.

Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the second leg of the Champions League round-of-16 clash between Liverpool and RB Leipzig at the Puskas Arena.
