By Joe Shread
Roberto Firmino is a doubt for Liverpool’s Champions League last-16 second leg against RB Leipzig on Wednesday.
The forward was absent from training ahead of the game, which will take place in Budapest, due to a sore knee.
Liverpool lead the tie 2-0 after second-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane secured victory when the sides first met on February 16.
The second-leg will again take place in the Hungarian capital, UEFA confirmed last week, because of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions between Germany and England.
