Liverpool will expect their noisy fans to recreate the special Anfield atmosphere that has helped them become kings of Europe five times when they take on Champions League winners Real Madrid on Wednesday night.
Brendan Rodgers's team, third in Group B with three points from two matches, have not yet shown the swagger that swept them to second place in the Premier League last season and they laboured to a 3-2 win at bottom club Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.
Liverpool, though, have won all three previous games against Real in Europe's elite competition and manager Rodgers is confident his players will give the 10-times champions a run for their money in front of a typically raucous home crowd.
"Real are playing as well as they have played for the last five to 10 years," he told the club website (www.liverpoolfc.com).
"What's great for us is that we're playing at home. We have a great crowd and this is a team that can rise to the level.
"Real Madrid, as the champions, are an exceptionally good side but we'll be ready."
Liverpool's shortcomings were all too evident against QPR and with striker Daniel Sturridge missing with a calf injury and Mario Balotelli short of confidence, breaking down Carlo Ancelotti's side could be a problem.
Real have no such issues up front and with Cristiano Ronaldo bagging 15 goals in eight La Liga matches, Rodgers is well aware of the challenges Liverpool face.
