How To Watch Liverpool’s Return to the Champions League in the U.S.

December 9, 2014, was the last time Liverpool played a group stage match in the Champions League. Steven Gerrard hit a late equalizer but it wasn’t enough to save Brendan Rodgers’ team from elimination, and the 1-1 draw at Anfield against FC Basel saw Liverpool finish third in Group B and exit the competition with just one win in six games.

Three years on, Gerrard sits in the comfortable, modern studios of BT Sport as a pundit while Rodgers saw his Celtic team lose 5-0 to Paris Saint-Germain Tuesday night.

It is now the turn of Jurgen Klopp, the charismatic, affable German, to lead Liverpool onto Europe’s biggest stage. But there will be no easing back into the competition, as Liverpool’s first game is Sevilla, which beat Liverpool in the Europa League final last year.

Klopp looks set to reintroduce Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho to the team on Wednesday night, after a turbulent summer in which the 25-year-old was denied a move to Barcelona.

The teams are due to kick off at 2.45 E.T. and the game will be shown on Fox Deportes, while also being live streamed at fuboTV.

This is only the fifth time Sevilla has made it into the Champions League, but the team has a good track record in the competition, having advanced to the knockout stage in three of four years.

Eduardo Berizzo’s team had to fight for its place in the group stage, beating Turkish team Istanbul Basaksehir 4-3 at the qualifying stages.

Liverpool, meanwhile, come into the game off a poor result at the weekend, beaten 5-0 by Manchester City in what was Klopp’s worst defeat in management since 2006.
