Liverpool will look to secure safe passage to the group stages of the Champions League when they entertain Hoffenheim at Anfield in the second leg of their play-off tonight.

Jurgen Klopp has made five changes from the side that beat Crystal Palace at the weekend as he reverts to the eleven that won the first leg in Germany last week.

It means Trent Alexandre-Arnold returns at right-back, Dejan Lovren comes in to partner Joel Matip in the middle of defence while Alberto Moreno starts at left-back. Joe Gomez, Ragnar Klavan and Andrew Robertson all drop out.

Emre Can also gets a recall in midfield with James Milner dropping to the bench while Mohamed Salah comes back in to the attack. It means Roberto Firmino moves up front with Daniel Sturridge making way.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Liverpool

Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino

Subs: Karius, Klavan, Gomez, Milner, Solanke, Robertson, Sturridge.

Hoffenheim

Baumann; Kaderábek, Nordveit, Hübner, Geiger; Vogt; Gnabry, Demirbay, Zuber; Kramaric, Wagner.

Subs: Kobel, Bicakcic, Rupp, Polanski, Toljan, Uth, Szalai.
