Monterrey Team News

Monterrey Key Man
No, not that Funes Mori, Reds fans. The one we’re talking about here is Rogerio. He’s a hard worked up front, but he’s not without a ton of skill. He’s scored some big goals for them in all sorts of competitions, including one in the win over Al Sadd to book their place in this fixture. Midfielder Carlos Rodriguez will also come into this match in good form. He assisted on their opening goal and also grabbed one of his own, the one that ultimately proved to be the winner.

Monterrey have four wins and a draw in their last five matches:
3-2 win vs Al Sadd (FCW)
0-1 win at Necaxa (Liga MX)

Liverpool Team News, Updates and Facts
Liverpool Team News
Jurgen Klopp has a bit of a growing list of injuries to account for. Defenders Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren remain out, while midfielders Fabinho and Gini Wijnaldum join them as watching parties. Some of their team will travel following a match with Aston Villa, though they probably will play no role.
Liverpool Key Man
Suddenly, Mo Salah has surged his way back into form. The Egyptian had been having a bit of a down time, for his standards, but two goals in each of his last two matches, some ridiculous ones, too, will have him relishing his chances to continue those exploits here in this match. In midfield, Naby Keita will also look to follow up some strong showings. He’s had a slow burn of it at Anfield, but he’s starting to find his feet and will be hoping to impress once more here in Qatar.
Liverpool Team Form
Liverpool have won each of their last five matches:
2-0 home win vs Watford (EPL)
0-2 win at RB Salzburg (UCL)
0-3 win at Bournemouth (EPL)
5-2 home win vs Everton (EPL)
2-1 home win vs Brighton (EPL)
Liverpool Predicted Starting Line up

Liverpool likely XI
- Defenders:Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson
- Midfielders:Henderson, Milner, Keita
