Samuel Eto'o. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of defenders across Europe.
For over a decade, the Cameroonian striker has plundered goals in the top leagues of European football and over his career he has racked up and impressive 333 senior goals in 624 appearances for club and country.
Eto'o is the world's highest-paid footballer but arguably remains one of the most underrated players of his time. Ask soccer fans to name the best players of the last 10 years and his name will rarely come up.
This is despite a goal-scoring record to match anyone, starring roles for Barcelona and Inter Milan, four league titles, three domestic cups and three Champions Leagues. That's not even taking into consideration the two African Cup of Nations and the Olympic Gold Medal he won with Cameroon.
Eto'o comes into this match as Anzhi's best player and their biggest threat. If Liverpool want to emerge victorious they will have to stop Eto'o. But do they have the players to do it?
It all depends on who Brendan Rodgers picks in defense. If he goes with Daniel Agger paired with Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates, then yes, Liverpool could stop Eto'o from influencing the game in the only way he knows how, by scoring goals.
If, however, Rodgers opts to stick with Jamie Carragher for Europa League matches then Eto'o could run rampant. What little pace Carragher had has deserted him and he simply wouldn't be able to cope with Eto'o's pace, movement and guile.
If Eto'o is allowed to impact the game, then he could well score the goals to give Anzhi the win. If Liverpool can stop him, they'll be giving themselves a great chance of taking all three points.
Anzhi's other striker is the giant Ivorian Lacina Traore. Standing at an enormous 6'8" Traore has been in good form of late. He has a good touch for a big man and certainly knows how to score goals. He's not the type of player who can win matches on his own, however.
He will require Eto'o to cause havoc and drag defenders out of position so that he can plant himself next to a full-back and win aerial duels against a smaller player.
Again, the message to Liverpool's defense is simple. Stop Eto'o
