Liverpool vs Rangers LIVE: Latest Champions League updates after Trent Alexander-Arnold goal

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits the team lacks confidence

It’s an all-British affair in tonight’s Champions League when Liverpool host Rangers in Group A. The Reds bounced back from their Matchday 1 defeat by Napoli with a 2-1 win over Ajax – thanks to Joel Matip’s 89th-minute winner – and sit second in their group ahead of tonight’s game.

Rangers, meanwhile, have lost their first two games in Europe’s top competition, conceding seven goals in ties with Napoli and Ajax. The Champions League return was a tough blow for the Scottish side but they will put some confidence into this game thanks to a 4-0 defeat by Hearts in the Scottish Premiership at the weekend.

It’s also a good time to visit Anfield as Jurgen Klopp’s side look weak defensively and are struggling to find any rhythm. Of the five games they have played at home this season, Liverpool have kept just one clean sheet but they are hoping to rectify that against the Gers and get their season back on track. Can Rangers capitalize on Liverpool’s weaknesses or will the Reds sweep Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men aside tonight?
