Liverpool vs Monterrey Match Preview
Tonight, Liverpool face Mexican opposition in Monterrey. The table-topping English side are huge favourites to come out on top but are missing key man, Georginio Wijnaldum.
Virgin van Dijk will be available, despite missing training on Monday. That’s a huge coup for the reds, the Netherlands international has been crucial to their season so far and offered amazingly consistent performances.
Meanwhile his potential centre back partners, Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip, are both out injured. Fabinho is missing through injury too.
All the same, Liverpool are expected to progress. The international stars that make up their team should have enough to cope with Monterrey, who currently sit eighth in the Mexican Primera Division.
Jurgen Klopp told the BBC: “We do not fly 3,000 miles not to show up. Our life is certainly dealing with difficult situations. We will be prepared and we will try to win the football game. We do not see ourselves as the favourites, we are challengers. We are here to represent Liverpool and Europe.”
In the other semi-final, which took place yesterday, Flamengo defeated Al-Hilal 3-1. They impressed fans and currently sit top of the Brazilian league, with a stunning 90 points.
A showdown between Flamengo and Liverpool could potentially make for an interesting final then, if the Merseysiders manage to progress tonight.
