Ozan Kabak: Harshly criticised and under-praised

LIVERPOOL ARE BACK! Well, they've won another game, at least. The Reds were excellent in their 2-0 win over RB Leipzig, as they were in the first leg and in a smattering of recent away matches. For all this incomprehensibly bad home form at Anfield, which is now bordering on laughable, Jurgen Klopp's men haven't completely lost their mojo. Wednesday's victory in Budapest was further proof that Liverpool's season isn't dead and buried, with more glory in Istanbul the one …

Tactical Breakdown: RB Leipzig 0-2 Liverpool

Liverpool won 2-0 in their round of 16 away tie against RB Leipzig to make them favourites to progress to the quarter-finals. In some ways, Julian Nagelsmann's side was a welcome opponent, with their expansive, aggressive and calculated-risk based play. Leipzig offered a very different tactical proposition to the majority of Liverpool's recent opponents, with a high press, two forwards, a single pivot and back three almost all rare in their own respects in the Premier League. Systems When in …
