Liverpool squad & team news

A familiar-looking Liverpool lineup recorded a win against Crystal Palace in Singapore and Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his players can get another good outing in Germany.

Klopp has a number of fitness concerns ahead of the game, with Diogo Jota's injury being the biggest concern for the Liverpool boss. The forward is feared to have suffered a recurrence of a hamstring problem.

Alisson Becker and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have also been ruled out due to an abdominal issue and a muscle issue respectively.

Joe Gomez was not in action against Palace as a precaution but has returned to training. Youngsters Kaide Gordon, Caoimhin Kelleher and Calvin Ramsay are unlikely to be risked as well.

Liverpool's Egyptian forward Mohamad Salah is expected to feature in the starting lineup, after having made only a substitute appearance against Crystal Palace. Adrian is set to replace Becker in between the sticks.

Possible Liverpool XI: Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson; Henderson, Thiago, Fabinho; Diaz, Darwin, Salah.

RB Leipzig squad & team news

Domenico Tedesco's squad has injury concerns of their own. Josko Gvardiol and forward Yussuf Poulsen are yet to make their comebacks from injury whereas Ademola Lookman is doubtful to take part in the game due to a knock to his ankle.

Tedesco will hope to make full use of his squad against Liverpool. Former Liverpool goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi is likely to be slotted in goal. Alexander Sorloth may fancy his chances in front of goal as he is set to replace the injured Poulsen in attack.

Possible RB Leipzig XI: Gulasci; Angelino, Orban, Klostermann, Halstenberg; Forsberg, Szoboszlai, Laimer; Ba, Sorloth, Kampl.
