Can you name Liverpool’s starting XI after their 2-1 UCL win over Barcelona in 2007?

Liverpool never won the Premier League under Rafa Benitez, but they were a serious proposition in Europe during his reign.

Two years later this night in Istanbul, Liverpool entered the knockout stages of the Champions League needing to beat holders Barcelona to progress further in the competition.

A difficult proposition in itself. But one that was made even more difficult after the pre-match headlines were dominated by an alleged training camp between two Liverpool players.

The pair in question started at the Camp Nou and both were on the scoresheet as Liverpool secured a famous 2-1 win.

Despite lining up legends such as Ronaldinho, Carles Puyol, Xavi and Lionel Messi, Barcelona were overtaken and beaten by Benitez’s side and couldn’t reverse the score in the second leg at Anfield.

Liverpool progressed to the final, knocking out Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea on the way, before losing 2-1 to AC Milan in Athens.

We ask you to name the Liverpool XI that Benitez chose that night in Spain. Boasting a stable squad, the Liverpool manager picked an experienced line-up in February 2007, but you might struggle to remember a name or two.

The score to beat from our offices is 01:45.
