Liverpool are back in UEFA Champions League action as Brendan Rodgers’ men are in Switzerland to take on FC Basel.

With no wins in their last three Premier League games, this match represents a welcome break from the rigors of the PL.

The Reds beat Ludogorets in their opening Group B match two weeks ago but a tricky trip to Basel will really test their UCL credentials and is crucial ahead of back-to-back matches against reigning European champions Real Madrid.

A point away in Basel isn’t the worst result in the world as the locals get pretty fired up at St. Jakob Park but with Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho supporting Mario Balotelli up top, Liverpool will be hoping to make it two wins from two in the UCL.
