The current leaders of the English Premier League will try to duplicate their winning performance last time with the same opponent at home this time. The reigning champions of this tournament sit on the 2nd spot of the group table with 7 points and have already bounced back from the opening loss on the road against Napoli 2-0 by thrashing RB Salzburg at home 4-3 victory and Genk 1-4 on the road. Despite the tight schedule with domestic and European commitments all set in consecutive week now, Jurgen Klopp’s men have maintained good result, unbeaten in 10 matches, winning 9 of those 10 games since losing that lost to Napoli. They have sealed a spot in the next round of the Europa League after the hard-fought win via penalties against Arsenal 5-5 at home, while they remain the leaders of their domestic top flight with 31 points from winning 10 of their last 11 games, drawing 1. The Reds have not lost a single home game this 2019, extended their unbeaten run at home to 46 games and have kept their winning streak at home in 12 Premier League games.
The then home team of this Group E battle is back on the road to face the same squad that thrashed them in front of their home audience 1-4. They have seen extremely poor in their campaign as the results from both the group stage of this Champions League and their domestic league are very disappointing, having won just 1 of their last 5 matches across all competitions, defeated in 3 and drawn 1. They sit at the bottom of Group E table with a single point in 3 matches so far, while dropping points again at Belgian Pro League after being winless in back-to-back domestic league games. This is their first Champions League campaign since the 2011/12 season and since their return, they have not won a game in their last 5 Champions League matches. Playing on the road, they have won just 1 of their last 5 away games across all competitions, failing to score in their last 2 and conceding to 11 goals from those 5 games away from home.
This will be the second time that these two sides will meet since their match last time where Liverpool won on the road 1-4.
