Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Liverpool can happily travel towards Russia for the confrontation in the Europa League with Rubin Kazan. Jorgen Klopp managed to win his first game against Chelsea which will give his men a big confidence boost. So far Liverpool didn't win any of their games in the Europa League, all 3 games end in a draw. Rubin Kazan on the other hand tied 2 and lost 1 which brings the Russian club to the 4th place on the table. Matches in Russia are tough for every opponent, it's mostly a lot colder than in Western Europe which will affect the players of Liverpool. Liverpool in it's current state is stronger than Rubin Kazan. The home advantage will play a big role in this game but the form of the day will be decisive.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1892, 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.
