Liverpool take on RB Leipzig this week with a win essential the Reds’ hopes for the rest of the season. Jürgen Klopp’s side go into the game with a two goal lead but with little confidence on the pitch. RB Leipzig could be without Angelino for the Liverpool clash on Wednesday.
Champions League hopes
Liverpool are now looking unlikely to finish in the top four following a sixth consecutive home defeat.
Fulham arrived at Anfield at the weekend with the blueprint in their back pocket.
Beating the Reds at Anfield looks easy these days; just sit in and nick a goal on the counter. We won’t break you down.
Qualifying for next season’s Champions League could rely on the Reds winning the competition this season.
This wouldn’t be the first time the Reds have taken this route.
We finished outside the top four in the 2004/05 season when we won it in Istanbul, they rewrote the rule book to get us in the competition the following season.
Leipzig Angelino doubt v Liverpool
The Reds need to get over the line on Wednesday.
We head to the Puskas Arena as the home team with a 2-0 away goal lead.
RB Leipzig could be without Angelino for the crunch clash.
The Spaniard missed the Bundesliga side’s 3-0 victory over Freiburg at the weekend.
He had missed the side’s last two games and was thought to be edging closer to fitness so whether he wasn’t played as a precaution or not only time will tell.
What RTK has to say
RB Leipzig being without Angelino for the Liverpool game would be massive.
The Spaniard is one of the German side’s most dangerous players, he threatened us early on in the first leg.
It would make our job a lot easier not having to cope with his marauding runs down the left.
We’ll be keeping a close eye out for any updates.
