Rafa believes in miracles

Rafael Benitez has admitted Liverpool need a miracle to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The disappointing early results have left the Reds all but out of the Champions League at the group stage. Even Rafa Benitez is admitting qualification from this position would be miraculous.

"It will be difficult. Like I have said before, it could be a miracle. It depends on the other teams but we have to do our job. If we can play against Fiorentina with options it will be fantastic and hopefully we can do it," said the boss.

"When you can qualify first, maybe it's an advantage. Lyon are good professionals. If you finish at the top of the group it's good for the club and also means some money.

"He [Lyon manager Claude Puel] will try to win because it will be good for him, his players and the club if they finish top of the group. I have confidence they will do it."
