Liverpool in for a ‘tough’ game against Besiktas says Countinho [divider]
Liverpool could be in for a tough game against Beşiktaş in the Europa League Round of 32 according to attacking midfielder Coutinho.
“In the cup, all games are tough. It will be a difficult game for sure, like all the others,” Coutinho was quoted as saying on the official Liverpool website.
“But I think the most important thing is to think about just one game at a time, so the most important game now is the next one with Beşiktaş.”
Coutinho does however, believe Liverpool have a good chance to eliminate Beşiktaş from the competition and go all the way.
“We have a good chance, we have been playing well and everyone is making an effort. That’s what we want because our objective is to win trophies. That is what everyone wants at the club,” he added.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has three goals and five assists in all competitions for Liverpool this season.
The Reds are currently in 7th place in the Premier League on 42 points after 25 games.
Liverpool are just four points off a Champions League place but could still make the elite European competition without finishing the Premier League in the top four if they win the Europa League.
