The Brazilian played an integral role in the Reds’ Champions League final victory in June and is determined to lift another European Trophy on Wednesday evening.

‘It’s a chance to start the season well with another European title,’ the Brazilian told UEFA. ‘It’ll be a good fixture against a team that we, of course, have been competing against for titles domestically as well in England.
‘I think (winning) it would give us more confidence. Every time you win a title, your name goes down once again in the club’s history. Of course, with the team that we have, our mentality and ambition is to win.
‘So we’re going to compete for this title. I think it will help our confidence greatly.’
