Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway 2

Liverpool and Augsburg go head-to-head in the Europa League this week.

Liverpool’s players have been photographed being put through their paces ahead of their Europa League clash with German side Augsburg on Thursday evening.

The first leg of their last-32 tie ended goalless meaning there is all to play for in the upcoming match, and Liverpool will not want to ultimately regret their failure to score an away goal by conceding at Anfield.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will play a relatively strong side for this encounter despite the fact that he will then lead his side out at Wembley for the final of the Capital One Cup against Manchester City on Sunday.

Among those Liverpool players in training on Thursday were Brazilian internationals Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, along with fit-again striker Daniel Sturridge and young centre-back Tiago Ilori.

Prior to the 0-0 draw in the first leg Liverpool defeated Aston Villa 6-0 and a repeat of that free-flowing football would go down a treat at Anfield this week as the Reds seek a place in the last-16 of a competition that could ultimately secure them a Champions League place next season.
