CL Teams: Liverpool v Debrecen

Liverpool get their Champions League campaign underway for the season with the visit of Hungarian champions Debrecen to Anfield.

Manager Rafael Benitez has decided to stick with the same starting line-up that beat Burnley 4-0 on Saturday.

That means Fernando Torres will be getting his support from Dirk Kuyt, Albert Riera and Yossi Benayoun again. Kuyt and Benayoun (with a hat-trick) got all four of Liverpool’s goals at the weekend.

Captain Steven Gerrard plays again in the role alongside Lucas in the centre of midfield.

Mascherano missed Saturday’s match after staying in Argentina to get an injury assessed, he’s back in the squad tonight but is kept back on the bench. Fellow South American Fabio Aurelio makes a return to the squad from a much longer-term injury, like Mascherano he’s on the bench.

Liverpool: Reina, Insua, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Lucas, Gerrard, Benayoun, Riera, Kuyt, Torres.
Subs: Cavalieri, Aurelio, Kyrgiakos, Spearing, Mascherano, Babel, Voronin.

Debrecen: Poleksic, Bodnar, Komlosi, Meszaros, Fodor, Kiss, Ramos, Czvitkovics, Leandro, Szakaly, Coulibaly.
Subs: Pantic, Szucs, Feczesin, Bernath, Olah, Katona, Laczko.

Referee: Pedro Proenca (Portugal)
