Must Win Game To Progress To Quarter Finals

Meireles could be star man...

After the heated, intense and bitter fight to stay awake last week i think several Liverpool fans are hoping that the lads can provide a match worthy of not sleeping through this time out. Of course, this time it's slightly different, for a starters it's at Anfield (always better) and secondly we have to win.

Braga have the lead on aggregate and things could get messy if they get an away goal. Liverpool need to level it up as soon as possible and then search for a winner. 

I think for once in the Europa League we could be in for an exciting match, with the real possibility of Andy Carroll starting too i think we might be in for a good night.

Liverpool were dealt the major blow of Steven Gerrard having to have surgery and so will be without their captain for tonight's game against Braga. Also still out are the likes of Fabio Aurelio and Jonjo Shelvey although both have been spotted in training. Martin Kelly is also still unavailable after a hamstring tear but Daniel Agger who suffered a small knock has also been back in training may be available.

With injuries and of course Suarez being unable to play i think the Reds will be relying on the likes of Meireles and Carroll tonight to put this game to bed. Meireles is becoming more and more of a play maker and with Gerrard out it could well be his free kicks that find their way onto the head of Andy Carroll.

It's feasible for Liverpool to see out a 2-0 win here i think and that should be a decent target for Dalglish and his boys. Hopefully by 90minutes we will patiently be awaiting the draw for the quarter finals...
