Predicted Liverpool XI to play FC Basel - All or nothing for Reds

Anfield Kop

Here is the possible Liverpool side to play FC Basel this evening.

Liverpool square up to FC Basel this evening in a winner takes all match for a place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

It’s been a difficult group stage for the Reds as they have had to endure a different sort of challenge under Brendan Rodgers, which could see them disappoint after working so hard to get back into the tournament.

While the Reds have struggled to match the quality and levels set by group leaders Real Madrid, they should back themselves to have enough to get the better of Basel and teams at a similar level.

Should Liverpool make it through, then the team has plenty of time to rest and recover ahead of the draw for the last 16, although the Reds finishing second in the group would give them an apparently more difficult tie.

Here’s the side that Rodgers could go into the game with.

Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Toure, Moreno, Henderson, Lucas, Gerrard, Sterling, Coutinho, Lambert
