It’s fair to say that Liverpool didn’t get off to the greatest start in the Champions League group stages as they failed to beat Sevilla at home, but despite a few hiccups along the way they find themselves top of the group coming into the final round of group games.
All the favour is in Liverpool’s court, but things aren’t done and dusted just yet. They are only three points ahead of 3rd placed Spartak Moscow, and with Sevilla just a point behind in 2nd, there is still a small chance that Liverpool could move down to 3rd. It would require a seven goal turnaround in goal difference at home to Spartak though, so it’s a very unlikely possibility.
Liverpool have bounced back though, beating Stoke 3-0 and thrashing Brighton 5-1, both away from home. This free scoring way of playing is hugely entertaining, and Spartak Moscow will be very worried about their chances of keeping the hosts at bay.
Spartak Moscow can’t just sit back and defend either. If they want to stand any chance of making it through to the knockout stages, they need to come out and attack Liverpool, and considering they haven’t managed to keep a single clean sheet in the Champions League this season it doesn’t bode well for their defence.
