Liverpool v Fiorentina
Uefa Champions League
Wednesday, 9 December 2009
Kickoff: 20:45 CET
Liverpool are in the Europa League. Liverpool. Are. In. The. Europa. League. Liver…
Repetition doesn’t make it any easier to accept, although thankfully for Rafael Benitez he has a very professional squad of players and the teams around him in the domestic league (Tottenham, Manchester City and Aston Villa) are doing their best to help Liverpool qualify for the Champions League for next season.
Liverpool were awful away at Blackburn on the weekend (did you see Stevie G dive?) but with Fiorentina already through, the game should give both managers a chance to rest key players and give their squad members more playing time.
One player Liverpool fans are desperate to see is Alberto Aquilani, who was the subject of some debate on the Soccerlens Podcast last week. So far Rafa has been extra-cautious with the midfielder, perhaps mindful of the fate of the likes of Owen Hargreaves who have, after signing for big transfer fees, stayed out injured for the majority of their Premier League careers.
The one thing Rafa will not want is to lose this game – simply because winning here will give them much-needed momentum in the league going into the big weekend game against Arsenal (which will ALSO be shown live on Soccerlens).
