Sporting Braga – Liverpool (Thursday)

Posted by


Following our demolishing of Manchester United last Sunday, we now fly to Portugal to take on Sporting Braga in the Europa League Round-of-16.

With Martin Kelly, Fabio Aurelio and Daniel Agger injured Kenny will most likely hand Danny Wilson another start. Stevie G. hasn’t traveled to Braga while Jonjo Shelvey did travel however he is still injured. Luis Suarez is cup-tied however Andy Carroll is poised to start and looking likely he will team up with Last Sunday’s hat-trick hero Dirk Kuyt. Raul Meireles will also cherish a start against his fellow countrymen.

The Portuguese outfit also come to this game with their confidence high having beaten Benfica on Sunday.

Predicted Lineup:
Pepe Reina, Glen Johnson, Danny Wilson, Jamie Carragher, Martin Skrtel, Lucas Leiva, Christian Poulsen, Raul Meireles, Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt, Andy Carroll

Kick off is at 6PM GMT

  1. YNWA Antoine.

    I did not see your reaction post the Man United hammering. Happy I am guessing? Haha

  2. I assume Joe Cole was the other midfielder since you only mention 10 players?
    I think Kenny will play Spearing and not Poulsen and i’m sure Ngog will come on for Carrol or vice versa.

  3. Carroll probably wont start.. brukner himself said he hoped he would play some more minutes for the next games, and that he would be in full training in a couple of weeks..
