Liverpool can reach the Champions League semi-finals this season, according to former Reds captain Graeme Souness.

The Reds will end their five-year absence from the Champions League when Liverpool take on Bulgarian side Ludogorets Razgrad at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Brendan Rodgers’s side will be hoping to bounce back from a shock 1-0 loss to Aston Villa on Merseyside on Saturday, leaving the Reds in eighth place.

And Souness, who lifted the European Cup as Liverpool captain in 1984, feels the Reds can have a great season under the Northern Ireland manager.

“Liverpool will have a very good season for sure,” Souness told Sky Sports News.

“I can see them going to the semi-finals of the European Cup depending on who they get if they finished second to Real Madrid.

“Momentum is a great thing to have, especially at a club like Liverpool and the way the supporters get behind them on European night.

“They can have a good season and it can go really well in the European Cup. I don’t think they’ll win the Premier League but they can finish in the top four and it will be another great season for them.”
