Coppell: Reds could benefit from exit

Published Add your comment

Reading manager Steve Coppell believes Liverpool´s chances of ending their 18-year title drought could be boosted by an early Champions League exit.

The fourth-placed Reds know they must then get the right result in France next week, against Marseille, if they are to remain in the Champions League.

Coppell said: "I have always said what will decide the title race will be the effect of Europe and key injuries. Those two factors, when you get to March, might work in Liverpool´s favour if they are not in Europe."
