Liverpool: Good performance in the previous two games (Recent form: D W D W W)
Liverpool started this season with huge problems against Watford and 3-3 draw. They made a lot of mistakes in defense, but in attack were good even without Coutinho. He is still in the club, but didn't play in the first 3 games of this season and now will miss once again. In the first leg Liverpool were better against Hoffenheim and won with 2-1, but was lucky as the opponent missed a penalty, also missed great chance in the stoppage time. In the weekend the Reds faced Crystal Palace at home in a game from Premier League and had huge problems, but Mane scored and they won with 1-0. Lallana, Clyne and Ings are all injured and out, while Coutinho most probably will be left outsider of the squad.
Liverpool - Mignolet, Robertson, Matip, Lovren, Arnold, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Can, Mane, Firmino, Salah
Hoffenheim: Good start in the Bundesliga (Recent form: W W W L W)
Hoffenheim lost in the first leg with 1-2, but were very close to a draw and even a win as missed a penalty in the beginning of the game. Their performance in the local games were much better as eliminated Erfurt from Germany Cup with 1-0, also beat Werder Bremen with 1-0 in Bundesliga. There are no injured or suspended players, so full squad available, which is great news for the visitors. They will try to attack from the start of the game and score an early goal to keep their chances alive.
Hoffenheim - Baumann, Nordtveit, Vogt, Hubner, Kaderabek, Rupp, Demirbay, Zuber, Gnabry, Kramaric, Wagner
NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Liverpool are with almost the same squad, which beat Hoffenheim in the first leg with 2-1, while the German side will have to attack more as they need to score at least 2 goals here on Anfield, so I expect an open game and lots of goals.
Nowgoal Over 2.5 goals @ 1,48
