The Reds take on minnows Ludogorets at Anfield on Tuesday evening in their first game of the competition.
It will be the first time Brendan Rodgers side have played Champions League football in five years.
Although the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are the front runners to win the elite competition, Scholes thinks his former clubs bitter rivals could spring a surprise this season and lift the trophy for a sixth time.
“Brendan Rodgers has done a fantastic job,” the ex-midfield star told ITV. “The style of play he’s adopted is exciting to watch and the players seem to have taken to him.
”I feel they will do well with the players they have.
“The big advantage they have is a home crowd. Anfield is always a hostile place to go, which is something Manchester City lack.”
While Liverpool should dispose of Ludogorets fairly easily they may have trouble with the rest of their opponents in Group B.
Reigning champions Real Madrid are expected to rival the Reds for top spot in the group while Swiss side Basle may present a potential banana skin for Rodgers and his men.
