SGL Arena interior - FC Augsburg

Liverpool continue their pursuit of the Europa League.

Jurgen Klopp returns to Germany for the first time with Liverpool this evening as the Reds take on Augsburg.

Liverpool are high on confidence after a 6-0 Premier League win over Aston Villa at the weekend, while Augsburg are coming off a 3-1 home loss to Bayern Munich.

The German side finished fifth in the Bundesliga last season, but this time around are down in 14th position.

The stakes are high for Liverpool in the Europa League, with a Champions League place for next season on offer for the winners.

With the Reds in eighth in the Premier League table, their chances of qualifying domestically currently look slim.

Liverpool showed mixed form in the group stages of the Europa League, but after qualifying - they need to take advantage of the situation they are now in and go all out to win the trophy.

A strong result in the away leg will leave them feeling confident they will be victorious in the second leg in front of their home fans at Anfield.
