Liverpool will take on Bordeaux in the midweek Europa League clash at Anfield on Thursday, 26 November.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 8.05pm GMT. Live coverage is on BT Sport Europe. Radio coverage of the match is available on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Overview

Liverpool come into this fixture after their 4-1 crushing victory over Manchester City at the Etihad in the Premier League tie. Brazil international duo of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino were exceptional for the Reds as both were on the scoresheet against Manuel Pellegrini's side.

Jurgen Klopp saw his side bounce back against City after a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace before the international break. He will be hoping his side can seal a victory over the Ligue 1 outfit on Thursday evening.

Bordeaux enter this match after a 2-2 draw in the league against Rennes away from home. They need a win to stay in the competition and a defeat will help Liverpool progress to the next round of Europe's second tier club competition.

The Reds have lost only one match in all competitions and they will be hoping to secure a place in the next round with a win at home.

What managers say

Jurgen Klopp: "Usually in football it (home form) is not the biggest difference and it should not make a bigger point than it is. What we have to develop in the first case is our performance and that is what we have done in the last few weeks. Most of the goals we conceded were set-plays. It was not easy to create chances against us so you take that more stability from that and then you can play football."

Willy Sagnol: "Is it a good time to face Liverpool? When you're Bordeaux, I don't know if there is one. Liverpool's squad is top-drawer. A few absentees do not change that. We also have some missing players. Our Benteke is also absent, since Cheick Diabate is."
