We are back with Europeans finest and have been giving (on paper) a favourable draw. Sparak Moscow, Sevilla and Maribor make up Group E.
So I’d imagine every Liverpool fan is over the moon with the draw and we should be because we should make the knockout stages but we just can’t get complacent yet.
We’ve seen it happen a few years ago when we made a return to the Champions League and yes we had Real Madrid in our group but other than that the group was ours to lose and in the end we didn’t make it past the group stages.
With us now making it in the group stages it just make tempt a few more players Liverpools way. With deadline day coming next week it doesn’t give Liverpool alot of time to bring in one or maybe even two name faces but with deadline day the most craziest transfer could happen and I wouldn’t be surprised if a new arrival came along to strengthen the depth of the squad for our European nights.
If I’m going to be completely honest I wanted Barcelona in our group. Even Leipzig would’ve been great but Barcelona would’ve been the one. Beating them would have giving us Liverpool fans some real satisfaction with the whole Coutinho saga but if we both qualify we can only hope we cross paths.
