SHOWS: LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND, UK (AUGUST 22, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "I think the main difference between this game tomorrow and the game last week is that now everybody knows about the quality of Hoffenheim, I knew it before but I'm pretty sure a lot of people in England didn't expect the quality of Hoffenheim they saw and that's now clear. For me, now it's half-time and in half-time you have to adjust things, you have to change things in the right direction. The first game was good enough to get the result, the second game needs to be better, so that's how it is." STORY: Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said on Tuesday (August 22) that Brazilian star Coutinho would likely not feature in Wednesday's (August 23) second leg against Hoffenheim to qualify for the Champions League group stages. Klopp said his team needed to up their game from the first leg, which they won 2-1 away from home, if they want to cruise into the competition's next round.
