Confirmed: Liverpool v Augsburg lineups - Sturridge starts

Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway

This is how Liverpool and Augsburg line up this evening.

Liverpool host FC Augsburg at Anfield in the Europa League this evening.

The Reds were held to a 0-0 draw in the first-leg last week, in a game lacking in quality, but they will believe that their famous home European atmosphere will see them through to the next round of the competition.

Liverpool enjoyed the weekend off to prepare for this game as they were not involved in FA Cup action, and there are signs that Jurgen Klopp is starting to build a particularly strong Liverpool side.

However, Augsburg will also be confident, despite their average form in the Bundesliga.

Despite winning just six league games this season, to leave them sitting in 13th place, they have won their last two European away games.

They also comfortably secured the 0-0 draw in the first leg, and they will be hoping that they can repeat the feat on Merseyside.

Liverpool head into the game with their most recent fixture being the first leg draw with tonight’s opponents, but Augsburg managed to pick up a win over the weekend.

They defeated Hannover by a 1-0 scoreline, raising spirits ahead of this tie.
