Liverpool will be looking to top their Champions League group and secure their spot in the last 16 when they host Spartak Moscow on Wednesday.
Neither is assured yet for the Reds, although they currently sit in first place in Group E with nine points. They are one point ahead of Sevilla in second spot, while their opponents are in third place, three points behind Jurgen Klopp's side.
A draw will guarantee Liverpool a spot in the knockout stages and a win would make sure of top spot, while victory for Spartak Moscow will secure them a spot in the last 16.

Klopp has spoken about his excitement for the clash and was relaxed when asked about the position Liverpool find themselves in.
"All the good and bad things that have happened brought us into this situation. If we win that's cool. I know a lot of people think we could already be through but that's not life," he said.
"Spartak could say the same. They gave four points away against Maribor. I am really looking forward to it. They are in a good moment and they have very important offensive players back.
