Starting lineup, confirmed:
Durm - Subotic - Sokratis - Schmelzer
Bender - Kehl
Aubameyang - Mkhitaryan - Grosskreutz
Bench: Langerak, Ginter, Bandowski, Amini, Jojic, Kagawa, Ramos
So Immobile gets the nod over Ramos having recovered from injury, huge game for him and his immediate future in the team because he's been far from convincing so far and Ramos has been scoring lately so this is really an opportunity for him to prove himself and pin down a regular spot in the team if he does well, he was expected to be signed as the #1 striker after all.
Aubameyang also in for Kagawa, reasonable decision considering Auba's form and the lack of match fitness Shinji still has (despite his good game at the weekend, he looked noticeably rusty) as well as some of the cramping he had earlier this week in training but it leaves a scarcity of game changers on the bench with Pierre starting.
Piszczek not even in the squad which I'm not sure about as to why, don't think he is suspended and I haven't seen anything reported about an injury. Maybe a technical decision and Klopp sending a message to the player? Could well be if it's not something like a last minute knock.
Looking forward to this one.
