Striker to stay on bench

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is likely to start with Fernando Torres on the bench for tonight's clash with Unirea Urziceni.

The Spanish striker has been out of the side with a knee injury but he made an appearance from the bench last week.

However, Benitez is unlikely to risk his star man from the start in Romania particularly with the Reds holding a 1-0 advantage from the first leg.

Israel international midfielder Yossi Benayoun is likely to start after overcoming his rib injury which he picked up in the FA Cup defeat to Reading. Elsewhere and Benitez may well make some changes from the line-up which drew with Manchester City last week as he looks to keep his side fresh in the race to be fourth in the Premier League.
