The latest on Roberto Firmino & Ozan Kabak ahead of Liverpool’s meeting with RB Leipzig

Liverpool vs RB Leipzig

Liverpool are back in European action in 24 hours’ time.

The Merseysiders are set to play out their second of two Champions League Round of 16 ties with RB Leipzig.

Liverpool, of course, head into proceedings with the upper hand, having notched a 2-0 victory in the previous leg last month.

The Reds, though, are currently on a simply dismal run of form, which has seen them lose six league games in a row at Anfield for the first time in their storied history.

So, Jurgen Klopp will no doubt be keen to put out as strong a squad as possible in Budapest to ensure they secure passage into the last-eight.

However, it does look as though the Premier League champions are likely going to have to make do without one of their main front-three against Leipzig.

Roberto Firmino missed Liverpool’s loss to Fulham over the weekend, and is now said to be a doubt for Wednesday after missing training on Tuesday with a knee complaint:

However, Ozan Kabak – who also missed out vs Fulham – did train on Tuesday:

Elsewhere, Jurgen Klopp has been drawn on how/where Fabinho may be utilised on Wednesday, though the German gave little away:

“I don’t know with Fab. We have to see. I know, but I don’t say it – maybe that’s better, or that’s the truth. But we will see.

“Yes, it’s an opportunity but having Fab back is in general good. We didn’t play him obviously for the [Fulham] game from the beginning because just after a long time being out and then two games in a row, we thought it makes not too much sense. Or is too dangerous in our situation actually. Now he is ready. But if he will play centre-half or midfield, that decision you will see tomorrow.”
