Brych, who will be joined by Mark Borsch and Stefan Lupp, has overseen two other Liverpool games in the Champions League: first, in the 3-3 draw at the Sánchez Pizjuán against Sevilla in the group stage, and then in the Reds' impressive 3-0 win over Manchester City at Anfield in the quarter-finals.
