Liverpool vs NK Maribor Preview

Liverpool vs NK Maribor

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Anfield

Date: 1st November 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Liverpool started their Champions League campaign not in the best way.

After two games, they looked like they would struggle to even make it to the Europa League as they only had two points at that stage.

However, their record-equaling 7-0 win at Maribor in the last match day saw them move top of the group that was blown wide open by Spartak Moscow’s win over Sevilla.

Liverpool will be heading into this game in buoyant mood not just because of the first leg’s result, but because they have a solid home record that has seen them concede just once in the League this season.

They have won 4 and drawn 3 of their home games in all competitions this season, scoring 15 goals and conceding just 5.

Maribor are not as bad as their last Champions League result shows.

Prior to that game, they had drawn with Spartak Moscow, and impressed in a 3-0 loss to Sevilla.

Their last results suggest they may have underrated Liverpool because of the Red’s struggle this season or simply a case of them having a bad night.

Liverpool have scored four goals against both Arsenal and Hoffenheim at Anfield this season and Maribor should be applauded if they can stop the Reds from reaching that figure in this game.
