Liverpool lineup against RB Leipzig this week needing a win. The Reds need to stay in the Champions League if they want any chance of qualifying for next season’s competition. The Reds hold a 2-0 away goal lead heading into the second leg at the Puskas Arena. We expect sweeping changes. Here is our predicted Liverpool lineup to face RB Leipzig:
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
The Brazilian isn’t to blame for our recent collapse. He isn’t doing much wrong at all, he needs some stability in front of him.
Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold
The Scouser in our team should return to the lineup for the big game. We missed him at the weekend.

Centre back: Fabinho
The Brazilian will surely return to the side and as much as we’d love to see him in the midfield we expect him at the back.
Centre back: Ozan Kabak
The February signing is also expected back in the side, he has some knowledge of the Leipzig attack having taken them on in the Bundesliga.
Left back: Andy Robertson
Andy Robbo was ineffective at the weekend, he could have more joy if Leipzig go gung ho.
Centre midfield: Curtis Jones
The Scouser was left out at the weekend, hopefully to keep him fresh for the task ahead this week.
Centre midfield: Thiago
Some have questioned the Spaniard’s abilities in recent weeks, he’ll show up in the big game though.
Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum
The first name on the team sheet, perpetually available.
Right wing: Sadio Mane
The Senegal winger has been in poor form lately, not finishing or creating enough. He’ll turn it around soon.
Left wing: Diogo Jota
Roberto Firmino was absent from training so we doubt he’ll be returning to action this week, Jota should keep his place as a result.
Striker: Mo Salah
The Egyptian King netted the opener in the first leg, he’ll be hungry for more.
