LIVERPOOL v BESIKTAS BETTING PREVIEW
The Reds are currently involved in a tough top-four battle in the Premier League. They have gone unbeaten in their last sixteen in all competitions, which is pretty impressive. Rodgers' men sit 7th in the Premier League, with only six points behind the third Manchester United, while they last weekend won a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
Gerrard looks likely to miss Thursday's fixture with a hamstring problem, while Raheem Sterling is also doubtful. Lazar Markovic will begin serving his four-match suspension. Jordon Ibe and Alberto Moreno may start as wingbacks while Balotelli is likely to sit on the bench once again.
Besiktas are coming off the back of four straight wins in the their league. They are sitting at the top of the standings but in-form Fenerbahce and Galatasaray are snapping at their heels. The Black Eagles went unbeaten in their six Europa League group stage matches this term and Demba Ba was their top scorer with five goals.
Slaven Bilic may set up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Ba leading their line. But he could make wholesale changes from the side that overcame Bursaspor at the weekend. Tolga Zengin is sidelined for the trip to Liverpool with a knee injury so Cenk Gonen is expected to start in goal. Ismail Koybasi and Alexander Milosevic will both miss the meeting through injury
Liverpool completely destroyed the Turks the last time that they face each other on Merseyside. Beisktas suffered their largest ever defeat in European competition when they were beaten 8-0 at Anfield back in the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League. Liverpool have won four and lost none of their last five home games against Turkish opposition. Besiktas have already played four matches against English sides this season, losing on aggregate to Arsenal in the Champions League qualifiers and winning and drawing against Tottenham in the Europa League.
