Jurgen Klopp's side travel to Germany for their Europe League last 32 clash on Thursday.

Emre Can has helped his Liverpool teammates just what they can expect from Augsburg, he has told the club’s official website.

The Reds face the German side in the Europa League on Thursday for the first leg of their last 32 clashes.

While many of Jurgen Klopp’s side may be unaware of the dangers they possess, Can and his boss aren’t, having both come up against him during their respective spells in the Bundesliga.

And the German midfielder has revealed just what he has told the rest of the squad he can expect from their European opponents.

“I told [my teammates] they’re a really good team, they are very strong and play together as a team,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

“So it will be a real challenge tomorrow. We know they’ve got a very good, strong team, so we’re prepared for them.”

With the Europa League presenting itself as a very winnable tournament for Liverpool, it will be interesting to see how Klopp approaches it.

He has named the youngsters for most of their recent cup games, most notably in their FA Cup run before their eventual exit to West Ham United next week.

That was largely because of a number of injuries limiting his options, but with several stars now returning to fitness, many would like to see him make a serious effort to go far in the Europa League.

Whether the German boss will do that though, with his side eyeing a top six place in the Premier League though, remains to be seen.
