UEFA Champions League Report: Maribor v Liverpool 17 October 2017

Meanwhile, this is Liverpool's 10th Champions League campaign, and only their second appearance in the group stages in the last eight seasons.

Maribor now sit fourth in the group table with just a solitary point earned on Matchday 1, which was followed by a 3-0 loss to Sevilla.

Liverpool enter Tuesday in second place on the Group E table with two points after draws in each of their first two matches.

The Reds got off to a great start after poor build up play from Maribor saw them surrender possession in a unsafe area.

This will be the first competitive encounter between Maribor and Liverpool.

Having failed to convert their dominance into victory in Moscow last time out, the Reds have the chance to claim only their second Champions League away win in nearly eight years - their last came against Debrecen in November 2009.


All we would ask is for Liverpool's transfer decision makers to sign the two players that could turn a very promising team into trophy contenders and the events of the first couple of months of this season highlight the two positions in need of strengthening. In fact, the Slovenian side has won just one of their 14 group stage games in the premier European club competition (D5 L8).

"We had bad luck [in the last few matches]".

In racking up 5 goals, this became the first Liverpool side in history to score as many goals away from home in the Champions League.

Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah also got in on the act before half-time, with the latter bagging a brace to help Jurgen Klopp's side to their own piece of history when it comes to English teams on the continent.

Tuesday could be the night when Jurgen Klopp & co. finally break the duck as they visit Maribor.

"They have had nine Champions League games so far (including qualification rounds) and that is quality and mentality".
