Happy 100th birthday, Finland! Oh, that’s not why you’re here? Is there something more pressing going on?
Liverpool face off against Spartak Moscow, needing at least a point to get through to the Round of 16. As highlighted earlier, there will be dangerous teams in both Pot 1 and 2, but winning the group will surely be a psychological advantage and a real sign of progress going forward. Hopefully, Liverpool can score early and often, and we can head into Sunday’s Derby buzzing.
