Our match prediction:
With 2 losses in their last 2 games Liverpool won't travel towards Bordeaux with a lot of confidence. Bordeaux on the other hand managed to draw against title candidate #1 Paris Saint Germain. A result that will give Bordeaux a lot of confidence. Like every season Liverpool is handing in a lot of quality to direct competitors in the Premier League. We expect both Liverpool and Bordeaux to play a cautious strategy in Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux. Liverpool striker Christian Benteke will be very eager to show Europe why he is one of the deadliest strikers in the world.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1982, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby. The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title. Liverpool won their last Champions League trophy in 2005, with the team coming from three goals behind to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul. The Reds have clinched five European Cups and it is no surprise they are regarded as one of the greatest European clubs. The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most notable footballers to have represented the club over the years. The club’s anthem is You’ll Never Walk Alone and their shirt colour is red.
