Confirmed: Liverpool line-up v Real Madrid in the UEFA Youth League

Here is the Liverpool team to play Real Madrid in the UEFA Youth League.

Liverpool under-19s: Fulton, Whelan, Maguire, Cleary, Brewitt, Rossiter, Brannagan, Wilson, Sinclair, Kent, O’Hanlon

Subs: Firth, Canos, Ojo, Marsh, Dhanda, Alexander, Kane

Liverpool are currently top of Group B on the same number of points as FC Basel and Real Madrid, but top of the group based on their performance against both teams.

This is a great opportunity for several Liverpool youth stars to impress away from home against a difficult opponent and impress first team boss Brendan Rodgers, who will more than likely review the action in the near future.

Liverpool are the top scorers in their group and also have a solid defensive record having only conceded five times in the tournament so far this season. Liverpool won 3-2 when these sides met in England, which will give them plenty of confidence heading into the match this afternoon.

The Reds are likely to use a combination of players from the under-18 and under-21 ranks, which are two of the best squads in the country.
