MARTIN SKRTEL has urged Liverpool FC’s supporters to help roar their team to a famous European comeback tomorrow night.
Brendan Rodgers’s side entertain Zenit St Petersburg in their Europa League round of 32 tie looking to overturn a 2-0 defeat from last week’s first leg in Russia.
Only once before, against Auxerre in 1991, have Liverpool managed to fight back from such a deficit in European competition.
And Skrtel, who played for Zenit before moving to Merseyside five years ago, believes the atmosphere of another famous Anfield European night could help turn the tie around.
“The atmosphere at Anfield in European games is always special and the game on Thursday will be even more because we lost the first game and the crowd feel we need their help,” said the Slovakia international.
“I'm pretty sure they will help us.
“In football everything is possible. We'll play at Anfield – we know the fans will be behind us and they'll help us to get into the next round.
“It's not going to be easy but if we can get an early goal that will help us a lot. Then just try to play our game, create chances and take them. We believe we can beat them at home.”
