Rafael Benitez believes his Liverpool side´s experience of playing in big matches will stand them in good stead going into tonight´s crunch Champions League showdown with Marseille.

Only a win at the Stade Velodrome will guarantee the Reds a spot in the knockout stages of a tournament they won in 2005 and were losing finalists in last season.

"We know how to play under pressure," said Benitez. "If you want to win trophies, you must play in finals. And for us, this is like a final. We have experience of these situations."
