THE TEAM NEWS

GENK

  • Genk did a good job defensively as they picked up a point from their game with Napoli as they prevented the Italians from scoring.
  • Despite the draw on matchday two, that result extended the Greek side's run without a win in the competition to eight matches.
  • Genk have plenty of options if they wish to change their side but it is unlikely they will stray too far from the side that held Napoli.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Coucke; Maehle, Lucumi, Dewaest, Uronen; Berge, Heynen; Ito, Hagi, Bongonda; Samatta

Unavailable: Vukovic (Injured), Neto Borges (Injured)

Doubtful:

LIVERPOOL

  • Liverpool almost blew a three-goal lead at home to Salzburg on matchday two but a fourth goal sealed the victory for the reigning champions.
  • After a gruelling start to the season, Jurgen Klopp may opt to rotate his line-up with the midfield an area that could well see changes.
  • Mohamed Salah sat out Liverpool's draw with Manchester United on Sunday but could return to the eleven from an ankle injury in this game.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Alisson; Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Lallana, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Unavailable: Clyne (Injured), Shaqiri (Injured), Alexander-Arnold (Illness), Matip (Injured)

Doubtful: Salah (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Liverpool responded to their loss on matchday one by edging out Salzburg in a thriller last time out. They now head to Greece to face a Genk side without a win in their last eight Champions League games and despite holding Napoli to a draw last time, the reigning champions should be too good.
