Liverpool play the first leg of their Europa League tie away at Rabotnicki of Macedonia and have travelled without at least nine first team players . The Reds travelled to Macedonia without Steven Gerrard , Joe Cole, Glen Johnson , Jamie Carragher , Jose Reina , Javier Mascherano , Fernando Torres , Dirk Kuyt and Ryan Babel and may find their opponents difficult to break down .
Liverpool are as short as 2/9 with some bookmakers to win the match and best price 3/10 with Bet365 but those odds are deeply unattractive .
Rabotnicki Kometal have already played and won two Europa League ties this season to qualify for this stage and will almost certaily be fitter and sharper than their Merseyside opponents .
With David Ngog likely to lead the line for Liverpool it should be a game of few goals and the value bet for the game should be to back under 2.5 goals with Stan James at 10/11 .
Make no mistake Liverpool would be delighted to come away from this game with a 1-0 or 2-0 victory .
The match is live on Primetime TV(Channel 480) at 7.45pm this evening for diehard fans prepared to pay £4.99 for the pleasure .
