Better to be hung for a sheep than a lamb. That will be the mentality of Julian Nagelsmann when he takes his Hoffenheim team to Merseyside this week, with Die Kraichgauer having lost 2-1 to Liverpool last week.

Things might have been different if the German side had converted a first-half penalty, although they were left to count the cost after Trent Alexander-Arnold opened the scoring with a free-kick before James Milner’s cross was deflected in.

Mark Uth’s late goal gives the Bundesliga outfit a little bit of hope, although Hoffenheim still have to score at least two goals at Anfield on Wednesday to stand a chance of qualifying for the Champions League group stage.

Winning the game 1-0 would mean they still go out on away goals, with Nagelsmann therefore setting his team up to attack Liverpool and hope to find gaps in a defence that did look shaky last week.

Jurgen Klopp will be aware of Hoffenheim’s need for goals and the Reds don’t really have a way of keeping things tight and closing the game out. The fact that Mo Salah was rested on Saturday indicates the important of the winger’s pace to really stretch the visitors on Wednesday.

We can conclude that the game is sure to be high-scoring and we’ll plump for a Liverpool win with both teams to score. The home side will love the opportunities to exploit a team desperate for goals and they have the players to cause maximum damage even if Philippe Coutinho continues to be absent.
