The 2014/15 Champions League group stage kicks off live on ITV when Liverpool take on Ludogorets Razgrad at Anfield on Tuesday 16th September.

The Reds are firm favourites to beat the Bulgarian champions, and with defending champions Real Madrid and Swiss side FC Basel making up the group, a home win against the weakest team of the quartet (on paper) is the only outcome manager Brendan Rodgers will want.

Watch live coverage of Liverpool v Ludogorets at 7.30pm on ITV and ITV Player.
