Thiago replaced James Milner in an otherwise unchanged starting side from the team for the 3-1 loss at Leicester at the weekend which left Liverpool 13 points behind leaders Manchester City in the Premier League.

Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann started with Spain’s Dani Olmo, with playmaker Emil Forsberg sidelined by a knee injury.
France defender Dayot Upamecano started at centre-back after it was confirmed at the weekend that he will join Bayern Munich next season.
The first-leg tie was moved from Leipzig to Budapest due to Germany’s strict Covid-19 travel restrictions, with the return leg at Anfield scheduled for March 10.
