Where Liverpool are rated higher than Bayern, PSG and more

Liverpool are rated strongly when it comes to their chances of progressing to the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Champions League returns this evening and Liverpool fans will be getting ready to welcome European nights back to Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will be confident of getting their group stage off to a winning start with three points and a prediction system from Bloomberg Sports suggests the Reds have a better chance of progressing to the last 16 than several of their European rivals.

Liverpool are given an 88% chance of making it out of Group B, which is better than the rating of Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, PSG, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund when it comes to chances of progressing to the last 16.

Liverpool’s build up to the game against Ludogorets this evening has been far from ideal, as the side go into the game off the back of a defeat with an injury to key forward Daniel Sturridge.

However, a strong and passionate home crowd could intimidate the inexperienced visitors as Liverpool look to throw down a marker to Real Madrid, their main rivals for top spot in Group B.
