Tonight’s Europa League match between Liverpool vs. Union Saint-Gilloise marks the Reds’ return to action after an eventful week of VAR fallout.
The Reds’ run of victories came to an end in Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur, but Jurgen Klopp’s team was unhappy that the VAR had not been able to reverse Luis Diaz’s incorrectly disallowed first-half strike and that they had to play the final nine minutes of the game with just nine players after Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota received red cards.
And following their first success at Austrian team LASK, Liverpool will try to improve to two wins from two in Europa League Group E following a difficult week that saw Klopp the need for the Tottenham match to be replayed following the VAR blunder.
Liverpool has never engaged in a competitive match Liverpool vs. Union Saint-Gilloise. The Belgian team, which qualified to the Europa League quarterfinals last year, drew 1-1 with Toulouse in their opening game.
