The Reds, one of the favourites to lift the trophy, have a solid advantage going into the match, as they beat the Germans 0-2 in their first encounter.
A good stat for struggling Liverpool
Liverpool have never lost any of their previous 20 'home' matches against German teams, winning 16 and drawing four, so that plays in favour of Jürgen Klopp’s men.
However, they are going through a tough period, as they are struggling in the Premier League. Moreover they have lost eight of their last 12 games in all competitions, while in the league they sit eighth with 43 points, 25 less than leaders Manchester City.
Leipzig optimistic they still can go through
Meanwhile, Leipzig have won their last four matches and are a real threat to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, since they are second in the standings with 53 points, just two behind the Bavarians.
Leipzig knocked Tottenham out at this stage of the competition last year and did the same to Manchester United in the group stage this season.
Firmino missed last training session
Roberto Firmino and Ozan Kabak were left out through injury in Liverpool’s last match, with the Brazilian Firmino a doubt for this match having missed training on Wednesday. James Milner also has a question mark over his fitness, but Kabak is expected to be available for Klopp.
Sadio Mané, who scored in the first leg, and the likes of Fabinho, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Thiago Alcántara will be pushing for a recall.
The German coach won’t be able to call upon Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, as they all remain unavailable through injury.
Angeliño out, Forsberg ready for the second leg
As for Leipzig, they won’t have full-back Angeliño, with thigh issues. Marcel Sabitzer and Willi Orban are also doubts for Nagelsmann's side, while Konrad Laimer and Dominik Szoboszlai will miss the match.
Meanwhile, Emil Forsberg, who missed the first leg, is back and could make his 50th European appearance.
