PHOTO: Liverpool players on plane ahead of Champions League tie

Liverpool are on their way to Bulgaria to face Ludogorets on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool players Jose Enrique and Emre Can posed for a photograph as Liverpool headed to Bulgaria for a vital Champions League clash.

Brendan Rodgers's side are currently third in Group B, having picked up just three points from their opening four matches. 

While Real Madrid are running away with the group Liverpool are fighting FC Basel (who are three points ahead of the Reds) and Ludogorets Razgrad for the second qualifying spot.

A win against Ludogorets this week will give Liverpool hope of making it into the knock-out stages but lose and they can wave goodbye to European competition for another year.

Liverpool are without a number of players including Daniel Sturridge and Mario Balotelli but they should have enough quality to beat a side who nearly caused an almighty shock at Anfield earlier in the competition.
