Our match prediction:
Jorgen Klopp and his Liverpool will host the game on Anfield Road against Rubin Kazan. The Reds were pleased with Jorgen Klopp's debut; Liverpool showed to be willing to play offensive football in a difficult away game against Tottenham Hotspur. The club had lots of injuries which gave Klopp a minimum amount of offensive players to play with. Rubin Kazan is traditionally a difficult opponent in the Europa League. The Russian club is known for playing very defensively and controlled. We expect Liverpool to play very offensively and put Rubin Kazan under pressure from the first whistle. Jorgen Klopp is an expert in European football and might be able to reach far in the tournament with Liverpool.
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.
