Liverpool will face Ajax, Napoli and Rangers in their Champions League group this season
According to Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield, the Scottish Premiership team’s match against Liverpool in the Champions League group stages stands out.
After not taking part in the competition since the 2010–11 season, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team qualified for Europe’s top competition by defeating PSV in their final qualifying match over two legs.
Rangers, who are the underdogs among Ajax, Napoli, and Liverpool, and who lost to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League final last season, have dreams of pulling off an upset in Group A.
Arfield, a former Burnley player who scored during the Clarets’ improbable share of the spoils in September 2017 against Liverpool, is one player who is especially excited about the chance to face the Reds. The 33-year-old spoke to Sky Sports on his Champions League matchup with Liverpool and his thoughts on it: “Being north of the border, that one is the most appealing to us.
“It will take some effort to prevail against the other three clubs in the group. However, you must have faith in your chances, and we eagerly await this.
After scoring at Anfield, Arfield said, “We can speak about it. “I can still see the ball drop, and I threw it to the left. It was a fantastic day, and I believe the final score was 1-1. It’s known for having a lively environment, and on that particular day, it was hopping. I have no doubt that Rangers supporters will adore it when they visit.”
The manager of Rangers, Van Bronckhorst, is also confident in his team’s chances of competing in Europe and called playing Liverpool both at home and away “great.”
He remarked, “I am confident the home games at Ibrox will be spectacular as well. We are going to play some terrific games against challenging opponents.””It’s great to play Liverpool for the first time, both at home and away. Naturally, there are many old faces in the team as well as the staff and the boardroom for me as I return to Holland to play against Ajax.”
