LIVERPOOL V UNIREA URZICENI MATCH PREVIEW
i know its a bit of a let down for everybody that its not the champions league but its still european football personally i'm still excited about it , but are you ? and will the anfield faithfull be tonight will there be a big crowd especially as its on tv, i have my doubts that it will be a full house and i'm a bit concerned that the crowd will wait for the team to give them something to cheer about rather than the support creating the atmosphere for the team, which could lead to a frustrating night.
i'm a bit unsure how RAFA is going to approach this game with one eye on sundays match at MAN CITY which is a massive game, i think RAFA will take sundays match a lot more importantly, however he knows that this is our only chance of silverware this season and therefore i think he will put out a strong side tonight mixing the line up a little prioritising for sunday.
RIGHT BACK- DEGEN
LEFT BACK- INSUA
CENTRE BACK- SKIRTEL
CENTRE BACK- AGGER
LEFT MIDFIELD- BABEL
RIGHT MIDFIELD- MAXI
CENTRE MIDFIELD- LUCAS
CENTRE MIDFIELD- AQUALANI
CENTRE MIDFIELD (ATTACKING)- GERRARD
CENTRE FORWARD- N'GOG
i think CARRAGHER will be given a rest for sunday even though fit for tonight, AQUALANI will be given a rare start with LUCAS holding midfielder, BABEL to be given a rare start hopefully to stake a claim. i think N'GOG will lead the line to try and give him some confidence with MASCHERANO, KUYT given a rest, but to be honest i think tonights team is anybodys guess.
UNIREA have a new manager and will maybe make the team a bit different from the one we witnessed earlier in the season in the champions league group stage.
i think they will set their stall out to frustrate and make it difficult for LIVERPOOL to break down so an early goal would be greatly welcome or it could become a frustrating night, UNIREA will be up for it massive game for them coming to a place like ANFIELD so it won't be easy.
i think with looking at the opposition and imagining LIVERPOOL will have more of the ball i think RAFA will play more attack minded players in the likes of BABEL and AQUALANI possibly coming in.
but i still think it will be a difficult game and i don't so many goals in this with LIVERPOOL at the moment lacking firepower and not getting many goals without TORRES, still shoring up at the back has been a massive improvement in recent weeks.
UNIREA showing how dangerous they can be against GLASGOW RANGERS
LIVERPOOL 2-0 UNIREA URZICENI
