Ludogorets vs Liverpool
Champions League, Group B
Vasil Levski National Stadium
Wednesday, 26th November; 7:45pm KO
Brendan Rodgers takes his side to Bulgaria for a crucial Champions League group game against Ludogorets. Anything other than victory would be a disaster for Liverpool.
On paper, it should be three points for the Reds, but as shown in the first meeting between the two at Anfield, nothing can be taken for granted.
Rodgers has named a strong starting line-up, in contrast to their last clash against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, with captain Steven Gerrard back in the team alongside Raheem Sterling.
Rickie Lambert leads the line once again after his goal at the weekend against Crystal Palace, although Mario Balotelli has failed to recover from injury and is not on the bench.

Adam Lallana and Fabio Borini are both on the bench, and can be called upon if required in the later stages.
