LIV vs GEN Dream11 : Genk’s plight looks set to continue when they take on a behemoth of a Liverpool side today.
Ahead of their previous clash against Genk in the Champions League two weeks back, the main rhetoric Liverpool were subjected to was to curb a maligned set of results away from home. The side had failed to win a clash away from their home in the group stages of the marquee tournamnet since last season, seeing their clash against Genk being held paramount importance.
And the 4-1 result which the current champions pulled off couldn’t have been any more convincing, a quintessential result which saw them dismiss all notions of being jittery outside of the comfort of their home stadium. The performance was as comprehensive and clinical as they come with the side pummelling Genk to decimate and dismantle them in a performance which also did massive favours to their chances of qualifying from Group E.
Now as the two sides get underway for ther second match in succession, Liverpool enter the tie as overwhelming favourites. The home side are expected to rout Genk, a side for whom a defeat today would end their chances of making it into the next round and ensure Liverpool of qualification from the group if Napoli are able to win their encounter as well.
With a match against Manchester City looming at the weekend in the Premier League, Liverpool will be looking to play around with their side for this one but that should hardly perturb them from piling on the goals in this one. This is a Genk side bereft of defensive ideas, a team which should serve to be little else than pushovers, making today’s encounter a foregone conclusion even before we get through with the contest.

Top Goal Scorer
LIV vs GEN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
While Liverpool were able to parry away their problems of not winning away from home in the last match, a new problem has crept up for the side which they have to address. The defensive stability and cohesion shown in the previous season is clearly lacking this time around with the side’s goal-keeper speaking about the peril ahead of today’s impending clash.
“When we concede in a stupid way, it annoys me and annoys my team-mates,” said Alisson. “Against Genk, we conceded a goal in the 85th minute. If you are winning by one goal and you concede in that moment, the game is pretty much finished. We need to learn from those moments.”
We are going to move in for him for this encounter with the goal-keeper an astute shot stopper, someone more than capable of curbing the opposition from scoring. Alisson Becker is a safe pair of gloves, some we envision to revel us in an indomitable showing today.
LIV vs GEN Dream11 Defenders
Our entire backline comprises of player from Liverpool with us moving in for CB Joe Gomez and fullbacks Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson. We strongly believe Liverpool will be putting in a defensive showing reminiscent to last season, one which should see them come out of this one speckle free and with the cleansheet they are so avidly yearning for.
Also in the two fullbacks, we have two players who are always likely to come up with either a goal or assist in between them given their affinity to canter down the park and imbed the dutiful processes to perturb the opposition.
LIV vs GEN Dream11 Midfielders
We have to begin with James Milner over here with the versatile player showing for yet another season why he’s held in such high reverence. This might be a new season in the exhibition tournamnet but we have been regaled in the same flawless and dependable showings from the Liverpool player, someone whose resolve and diminutiveness make him an instant choice for us.
He find company in Sadio Mane, the team’s top scorer who came up with a goal and assist at the weekend as well for his side while from the opposition we have decided to indulge in the duo of Theo Bongonda and Sander Berge for this one.
LIV vs GEN Dream11 Strikers
Roberto Firmino is our first pick from Liverpool for today’s encounter where on the other hand we have opted for a partnership from Genk. Althouhg Liverpool will be extremely difficult to break down today, the side are always prone to a couple of mistakes at the back when they go off to sleep with Mbwana Samatta and Junya Ito set to capitalise on them.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Firmino will be our captain for this one while Mane from the same side is the vice-captain.
