Liverpool are preparing for their fourth group-stage match in the Europa League and their longest trip of the season when they will travel to Russia to play Anzhi Makhachkala.

Two weeks ago the reverse fixture took place at Anfield, with the Reds triumphing 1-0 thanks to a Stewart Downing goal.

Though Anzhi are based in Dagestan, the match will take place in Moscow. Liverpool will nonetheless have a big challenge ahead of them to come out of the match with anything at all—though they know even a point would put them a big step closer to qualification for the knockout rounds.

Here are the five key battles of the match.
