Despite throwing away two points in their Champions League game to Ludogorets last night, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is pleased the Reds have their destiny in their own hands, reports BBC
“It is all in our hands going into last game – I can’t ask any more than that. I’m happy to rely on us playing in front of our fans in the final game. Thankfully we’ve had a good result against Ludogorets. We would have liked to win, we should have won, but didn’t,” he said.
Liverpool ended the evening in 3rd place with four points from five games. The Reds are two points behind 2nd-placed Basel, but host the Swiss side at Anfield in their last Champions League group in December.
While confident against any side at home, Rodgers will be very aware of Basel’s threat, as they lost the away tie to the Swiss champions in their first meeting.
