Liverpool’s 2024/25 UEFA Champions League Chances

Liverpool Flag

With the 2023/24 season now little more than a footnote in the club’s history, Liverpool FC looks ahead to an exciting future. It’s a period of change for the club, with long-serving manager Jurgen Klopp departing following a successful spell at Anfield. Klopp led Liverpool to many memorable results, including a first title win of the Premier League era when scooping the prize in 2020. Liverpool briefly halted Man City’s dominance in that season but were unable to build on that success, allowing the Citizens to win the next four to secure a place in the EPL record books.

Liverpool finished the 2023/24 Premier League season in third place behind Manchester City and Arsenal. The Reds were competitive for a large part of the season, pushing Man City and the Gunners for the top spot in the table. The club then suffered a dip in form, which caused them to drop out of a title race that Pep Guardiola’s Citizens eventually won. Stats of 24 wins, ten draws, and four defeats ensured Liverpool finished in the bronze medal position, securing a spot in next term’s UEFA Champions League.

The team that starts next season will be almost unrecognizable from the one that finished this term. But how will Liverpool’s new look perform in the Champions League? Can the six-time European champions make it seven? The most popular sportsbooks offering Champions League betting odds suggest Liverpool have a fighting chance, but is there enough value to warrant an interest? Many bettors will prefer to see next season’s squad in action before committing and gambling.

Salah’s remarkable pace, dribbling skills, and clinical finishing made him an instant fan favorite and one of the best signings in the club’s history.

Fernando Torres (2007-2008)

Fernando Torres, affectionately known as “El Niño,” joined Liverpool from Atletico Madrid in 2007. His debut season was nothing short of spectacular, as he quickly established himself as one of the most lethal strikers in the Premier League.

Torres scored 24 goals in the league, a record for a foreign player in their debut season at the time. He netted 33 goals in all competitions. Torres’ hat-trick against Middlesbrough and his iconic goal against Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final is particularly memorable.

Torres’ combination of speed, strength, and goal-scoring ability made him a nightmare for defenders and a hero to Liverpool fans.

Luis Suárez (2010-2011)

Luis Suárez joined Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011. Despite arriving midway through the season, Suárez made a significant impact with his goal-scoring prowess and creativity.

Suárez scored on his debut against Stoke City. He ended the season with four goals in the Premier League. In total, he scored 11 goals in all competitions. Suárez’s tenacity, dribbling skills, and knack for scoring crucial goals quickly endeared him to the Anfield faithful, setting the stage for his prolific scoring in subsequent seasons.

Robbie Fowler (1993-1994)

Robbie Fowler, a product of Liverpool’s youth academy, burst onto the scene in the 1993-1994 season with a remarkable debut campaign. Known as “God” by Liverpool fans, Fowler showcased his natural goal-scoring talent from the start.

Fowler scored 12 goals in his first full season. He ended the season with 18 goals in all competitions. Fowler famously scored a hat-trick in just four minutes and 33 seconds against Arsenal, a record at the time. Fowler’s instinctive finishing, positioning, and ability to score from various situations made him one of Liverpool’s most beloved strikers.
