Liverpool will welcome Toulouse to Anfield on Thursday evening looking to extend their lead at the top of Group E of the Europa League.
Liverpool have won back-to-back games in the competitions after wins over LASK and USG in the opening two games.
Liverpool have won their first two games in the group, with a 3-1 comeback win over LASK Linz on matchday one and a 2-0 home win over Union SG three weeks ago, extending their unbeaten run in the Europa League group stage to ten games.
While the Reds look to maintain their spotless record in this year’s group round, Les Violets are also unbeaten and might reach the summit with a memorable victory on Merseyside.
Liverpool returned to winning ways last weekend, defeating Merseyside rivals Everton 2-0 at Anfield after surrendering points in their previous two Premier League games before the international break.
The Reds, who have won all six of their matches at Anfield this season in all competitions and have only lost two of their previous 15 European home games against French opposition, can move five points clear of second-placed Toulouse with a win on Thursday, putting them firmly in control of Group E at the halfway point.
Toulouse stretched their unbeaten streak in all competitions to four games last weekend when they rescued a point in a 1-1 draw with Reims in Ligue 1.
Toulouse go into Thursday’s match at Anfield as heavy underdogs, but victory over Liverpool would give them back-to-back European victories in the same season for the first time since 1987/88.
