When: 20:00 | Wednesday 24/05/2017
The Reds roll into Australia off the back of a successful Premier League campaign where they finished third and managed to qualify for next season’s Champions League. They also come with a relatively strong squad, leaving stars Philippe Coutinho and Emre Can at home, while Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane miss through injury.
Despite this, they’ve also brought along a few legends in Gerrard, Carragher and Steve McManaman.
Sydney FC will pick from a full squad and will no doubt be well up for a game of this stature – but one wonders how extensive the end of season celebrations have been after their record-breaking season in the A-League.
Liverpool have never lost to an A-League opponent, having knocked off Melbourne Victory 2 – 0 in 2013, while they also accounted for Brisbane Roar 2 -1 and Adelaide United 2 – 0 in 2015.
The Reds only landed in Australia this morning so will probably be sluggish but given their popularity here they’ll be sent out to win the game.
