The Reds will be out of the running if they fail to win tonight, after collecting just one point from three group matches. It is time for them to produce one of their famous european performances, at times they look what they are, a class act, at others, decidely average and goal shy. However, they are creating chances, in the first match, which the Turkish side won 2-1, Liverpool registered an incredible 28 attempts on goal, it is a long time since I have seen so many in an away group tie. Besiktas had a tough Istanbul derby derby with Fenerbahce at the weekend, which they lost and also picked up a key injury to an already weakened defence.

Benitez is keen to start Fernando Torres up front and I think that the spanish player will be ready, he was said to be "almost fit" on Sunday evening and trained yesterday and apparently is doing the same this morning, probably as I type ( 10 AM). The goals will come for Liverpool sooner or later, but time is running out, for all concerned, it had better be the former, if they score one, the floodgates could open, especially against such poor travellers, who have lost 5 from 7 CL away starts and are capable of throwing the towel in , if falling behind..

6 points Liverpool -1.75 goals 2.11 asian line.

Good Luck.
