Expert predictions

Matthew Howarth, Liverpool reporter: Given Liverpool’s wretched home form, playing the last-16 second leg away from Anfield might suit Jürgen Klopp and his players. A healthy lead from the first leg should see them safely through to the quarter-finals, but an early Leipzig goal would certainly test the Reds' fragile confidence.

Jordan Maciel, Leipzig reporter: Leipzig are flying domestically but have a mountain to climb after an error-strewn 2-0 defeat in the first leg. Wednesday's opponents should provide all the inspiration they need to pull off a memorable comeback, however. Liverpool are low on confidence and defensively fragile; if Leipzig score first, the tie is wide open.

Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool manager: "We have momentum in the Champions League. Leipzig have a different momentum as they won the last four, but previous results don’t impact on the game. Why can we win the UEFA Champions League? Two things: the quality and football in general. You always have a chance in the next game. It's half-time: we have to play the game. I have no doubt about us. We will give it a proper fight."

Julian Nagelsmann, Leipzig coach: "It won't be an easy task: the players know and I know. We must avoid the mistakes we made in the first leg. We will give everything we have and of course we can dream of delivering a great game. We haven't produce a motivational video of great past comebacks, but the guys know that some crazy things have happened in football and such a result could be turned around in a second leg."
