Benitez Believes In Great Escape

FOOTBALL : Rafael Benitez insists Liverpool can amaze Europe again and make sure of unlikely Champions League qualification.

Rafael Benitez insists Liverpool can amaze Europe again and make sure of unlikely Champions League qualification.
To stay in contention for a last 16 place, Liverpool need to beat Hungarian champions Debrecen in the Ferenc Puskas stadium, and hope Lyon do not lose away to Fiorentina in tomorrow’s other Group E match.
“We have produced miracles before, we can do the same again,” said Benitez.
“It will be difficult, maybe another miracle. But all we can do is our job.
“If we can then play against Fiorentina with options of winning and qualifying next week, that will be fantastic. Hopefully we can do it.
“Last time in this position we managed to qualify and it was amazing. It will be the same if we do it again.
“We had to win our last three games two years ago in the group stages, now it is only two. We achieved success in a great way, scoring four against Porto, eight against Besiktas and four in Marseille.
“That was magnificent. This time if we go through it will be just the same feeling.”
Liverpool expect to have Glen Johnson and Daniel Agger fit after calf and head injuries, with skipper Steven Gerrard leading from the front in only his second start in more than a month.
Benitez added: “If anyone can do it, Gerrard can. But the whole team believe it is possible.”
