The team is out! liverpool Red for socialism, royal blue for Rangers. Anfield is a very metaphorical cauldron.one of Them A European night under the lights, everyone gives it enough. The punter in the away section is certainly up for it, and presents her You’ll Never Walk Alone, who is also popular in Glasgow’s east end, with the pantomime bird. Former Rangers and Manchester United forward Sir Alex Ferguson is in the stands and may be partial. Ready? yes! Britain ready for battle!
Jürgen Klopp speaking to BT. “We expect it to be a really tough match. They have a counterattack threat and are compact. We’ll see how deep they defend. We thought we needed to, so we did in terms of the formation, let’s see how it works, there’s no perfect time, no wrong time, but we had to change anyway. i play so many games now i can’t push my boys through i use them all i know it’s easy when you’re winning all the time but i’m doing it in this moment I have to, so I decided to do it.”
Gio van Bronckhorst tells BT Sport. “It’s a stage we want to play. It’s a big game for us. It’s a big thing for the players to play at Anfield. I’ve only played here once in my career, so it’s good to be here. It’s a moment. liverpool We have a very aggressive XI, so we need to be prepared. Don’t leave a lot of space in your own half and try to find dangerous moments when you have the ball, they played the same way as Ajax in his last 25 minutes so probably the same setup. prize. Their striking ability is very threatening. Cholak is in great form, but I chose Alfredo for this match. ”

Liverpool first played Rangers in October 1892, just 125 days after the club was born. The bouncing boys were beaten 6-1. Since then, the two famous old clubs have faced each other on his nine occasions, all ten of them, although Gyor has already beaten him once in 2011 thanks to an own goal from Fabio Aurelio. It’s a friendly match. It’s the first time I’ve met face to face in a serious match. Tonight in history, here!
Host is not the best nickname. They may have struggled against Brighton last weekend, with a final score of 3-3 at Anfield much to the delight of Jürgen Klopp’s side. They have already slowed their pace in the Premier League with the properly pressed and laundered Euro Trousers returned to them by Napoli already. I was able to regain some of my confidence.
In contrast, the Rangers have regained some of their composure after their rocky spell. Back-to-back 4-0 thrashings between Celtic and Ajax left Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men in a dark spot. His 3-0 home loss to Napoli doesn’t look good on paper, but Rangers still put up a good fight when he had 11 players on the pitch. Subsequent home victories against Dundee United and Hearts restored morale a bit. Tonight we might play with the complacency of the men given a free shot.Few expect them to bring anything back from Anfield despite the hard work of the hosts.. Kick off is at 8pm BST. It’s on!
