Both teams need a win to keep their hopes of advancing alive.

Liverpool travel to Bulgaria on Wednesday, where they'll face Ludogorets, with whom they're currently tied for last. The two sides both have three points in Group B, but a win for either could put them even with Basel. With both teams seemingly capable of catching the Swiss side and moving on to the next round, we should be in for a wide open game.

The Red's recent form has been abysmal with three straight losses in the Premier League and two straight Champions League losses. After last year's amazing run that saw the Reds nearly lift the trophy, now nothing is going right for Brendan Rodgers . Anything other than a win over Ludogorets is likely to just stir up more concern and increase calls for him to be replaced.

Liverpool's injury list remains sizable with Daniel Sturridge being the biggest absence for the club at the moment. The striker has been unable to play for well over a month and the Reds offense has been the worse for it. Several players are doubtful with knocks as well including Mario Balotelli, who is bothered by a hamstring injury and Jordan Henderson, who's been fighting an illness.
