Liverpool kick off their Europa League efforts tonight, hopefully bucking the long-term trend of recent English failures in UEFA's second-tier continental competition, and the short-term trend of English failures in Europe just this week. Liverpool's line-up should be, shall we say "interesting?" with key players such as Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner, Christian Benteke, Martin Skrtel, Lucas Leiva left at home. First team regular Dejan Lovren was also left off the trip.
Full Preview: Bordeaux vs. Liverpool.
Kickoff: 6PM BST/1PM EST from Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux.
