Liverpool to know their Champions League fate today

LIVERPOOL will discover their Champions League fate later today – with Pepe Reina convinced Rafael Benitez’s side can overcome their stuttering start to the campaign.

The draw for the group stages of the competition will take place in Monaco at 5pm this evening.

Liverpool are ranked joint second in the seedings, alongside Chelsea and behind only European Cup holders Barcelona.

It means they will also avoid Bayern Munich, AC Milan and Sevilla while the country protection rule ensures the Anfield outfit cannot face either Manchester United or Arsenal.

However, dangers lurk in the second group of seeds that includes Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Juventus.

Indeed, a potential nightmare draw could see Liverpool alongside one of those trio, third seeds Dinamo Kiev and fourth seeds Wolfsburg, the German champions.

Whoever they face, Benitez’s side will have to improve on their form so far this campaign which has already seen defeats to Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.
