Lucas Leiva will play as a centre-back for Liverpool during their Europa League tie against Augsburg.
Lucas Leiva has been recalled to the Liverpool starting lineup for tonight's Europa League clash with Augsburg.
Although naturally a midfield player, the Brazilian has been asked to operate in the centre of defence by manager Jurgen Klopp.
He has replaced Kolo Toure in what is the only change from last week's first leg, which ended in a 0-0 draw.
That means Daniel Sturridge will lead the attack at Anfield, with the Brazilian duo of Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho providing the support from advanced midfield roles.
As for the visiting Bundesliga outfit, Caiuby has taken Raul Bobadilla's place as the lone centre-forward.
