Liverpool play their second club friendly in as many days with Spanish side Osasuna in action at Anfield. The Reds managed a 1-1 draw against Athletic Bilbao yesterday which had more emphasis on player building their match sharpness rather than the result itself. It has been a quiet tranfer window for Liverpool so far with Jurgen Klopp not feeling the need to splash the money just yet. With several key players returning from injury after missing majority of last campaign, it does feel like they are a new addition itself. Opponents Osasuna defeated Real Sociedad 3-1 in their previous practice game which must have given them a lot of confidence. Lionel Messi in Paris?

Andrew Robertson suffered an ankle injury against Bilbao and that has left the fans worried with just a week left for the start of the season. The Scottish skipper limped off the pitch yesterday and is highly unlikely to face Norwich. Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara have both trained with the first team and expected to play some part against Osasuna. Another positive news for the Reds fans is key defender Virgil Van Dijk looked close to his usual best in the 71 minutes he played against Bilbao.
Jon Moncayola was part of the Spain’s Olympics squad and hence will join Osasuna’s squad late. Cote and Iker Benito are struggling with injuries at the moment and will miss their team’s opening few games. Ante Budimir will lead the attack for the Spanish side and his duel with Virgil Van Dijk will be interesting to watch.
