Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has noted that he’s team will have to amend their away records in the Champions League group stage if they are to progress to the next round.
The German who will be facing Genk began their European adventure with a 2-0 loss to Napoli at Naples.
Liverpool scraped through last season with a 1-0 win over Napoli in their final home game, with three Anfield victories giving them nine points and second place in their group as they have lost the last four.
“Last year we were lucky with how tight the group was that we could lose three times away and still have a chance to make it through the group,” Klopp said.
“That will not happen this year. It’s completely different.
“We don’t rely on home games or whatever. Obviously we like to say European nights at Anfield are really special but other teams can make a special atmosphere as well.
“They are not all the same. We could have won away games to be honest performance-wise which we didn’t win for some reason.
“We know it’s not historically good what we have done (in the away group games) in the last few years, but in general, the Champions League was obviously really good.
“We did the right things in the right moment but we don’t rely on these things. We know we have to improve and we try again and again and again until it works out.”
‘We are not tired’
The Liverpool manager added by saying it’s normal to have seven Liverpool players in the list of nominees for the prestigious Baloon D’OR
