The Bulgarian champions have been allowed to bring free agent Borjan in despite the transfer window already having closed, a position they badly needed strengthening after both their senior goalkeepers were ruled out of the tie.

Ivan Cvorovic has been ruled out due to injury, and Vladislav Stoyanov is banned after committing a professional foul in the last minute of extra time against Steaua Bucharest. Ludogorets still went on to win a penalty shoot-out against the Romanians, despite centre back Cosmin Moti deputising for Stoyanov.

Liverpool are set to host the unlikely Champions League participants tomorrow evening, which will signal the Merseyside club’s first appearance in the competition since the 2009/10 season. Ludogorets will be playing their first ever Champions League game, a very tough fixture for the European new boys.

Liverpool will be hoping for an easy win, with this match being a perfect way to forget about their shock home loss against Aston Villa on the weekend.
