The hosts know they need all three points here but know that they can’t come out flying against this Liverpool side or they’ll be picked off with ease. The best hope for the Italians is to stay in the contest and look to see what is happening elsewhere in the fixture between Atletico and Porto. If they find Madrid a couple of goals at half-time then they might come out flying in the second-half which is why both teams to score after the break appeals.
With the group title wrapped up Liverpool will likely rest and rotate their squad and Takumi Minamino should come into the first 11. The Japanaese forward has impressed when called upon in the League Cup and looks good value to score here.
