Liverpool will play against Maribor in the Champions League match at Anfield on Wednesday in the Group Stage. In the previous match of Group Stage Liverpool had thrashed Maribor with a margin of 7-0. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain scored his first goal for Liverpool in the match against Maribor in the previous matchday of Champions League.
Liverpool are going through mixed sort of form in the domestic league after getting the big margin win against Maribor in the Champions League two weeks ago. They were beaten by Spurs with a margin of 4-1 in a very important game. But they had come back strongly in the match against Huddersfield Town previous weekend as they had emerged victorious with a margin of 3-0.
They are currently situated in the first place of Group E with 5 points from 3 games in Champions League. A win against Maribor will surely brighten their chance to qualify for the next round from the Group Stage.
Maribor had also won back to back two matches in the domestic league of Slovenia. They emerged victorious in both the matches with the same margin of 1-0. But they are not in a very good form in the Champions League. They had earned only 1 points from their 3 outings so far in the Champions League. They will try to snatch at least 1 point from Anfield to stay in the contention to qualify to the next level from the group stage by keeping their defense strong.
