Liverpool 7-0 Maribor Highlights (Firmino, Salah and Coutinho on target as reds run riot)

Liverpool visit Slovenia as they take on NK Maribor for the Champions League matchday 3 game on Tuesday night, 17th October 2017 at the Ljudski vrt stadium. Having draw the opening two games, Liverpool must win this one to keep their qualification hopes for knockout stages in good shape. Anything but a win will surely ring alarm bells not only because Liverpool would then need to win two of the remaining three games atleast and there will be only one win in the last 9 games. Liverpool’s result this season are already putting Jurgen Klopp under pressure slowly and if the streak continue Klopp might get the axe by Christmas.

Match Highlights


Maribor 0-5 Liverpool Highlights
[ UEFA Champions League 2017-18 – Group Stage Match ]
04′ 0 – 1 Roberto Firmino opened the scoring in just 4th minute which lead to a flood gate as Liverpool run riot.
13′ 0 – 2 Philippe Coutinho made it 2-0 minutes later as Maribor were no match to dominant Liverpool.
19′ 0 – 3 Mohamed Salah got himself on the scoresheet and scored Liverpool’s third.
40′ 0 – 4 Mohamed Salah
54′ 0 – 5 Roberto Firmino made it 5-0 just after the halftime break and Jurgen Klopp started to ring changes.


Team News & Lineups: Maribor are a decent side specially at home, they will be compact in defense and resilient to frustrate Liverpool hoping for a break at the counter. However Liverpool’s weekend performance against Manchester United was pretty solid as they dominated the game and created more chances without conceding. Klopp was upbeat about the performance but not so much about the result. He knows, Liverpool must go on some sort of winning streak from now to have some sort of chance regarding silverware this season.

Loris Karius is set to start in goal for Liverpool inplace of Simon Mignolet who kept a clean sheet against United. Jurgen Klopp refused to comment of any more changes in the starting XI and considering Liverpool’s position in the group, he is likely to start with unchanged side which took the field against United. Sadio Mane is still out while Sturridge is not enough match fit to start. Firmino, Salah, Coutinho to start upfront with Ox-chamberlain to play in central midfield.

This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Tuesday night. Confirmed team news is available shortly before the start of the match.


Match Predictions: Liverpool will be favourites going into the game on paper at least but their form suggest they might well be in trouble on tuesday night. We expect a unchanged team from United’s clash which should have enough about them to get a result here. There might be just one goal in this game and that will be enough to get three points for either side. I am going with a narrow 1-0 away win for Liverpool which will put their qualification hopes back on track.
