Jürgen Klopp provided an update on Philippe Coutinho's fitness on Monday evening.
The Liverpool manager was asked about the Brazilian – who is currently sidelined with a back injury – at his pre-match press conference in Hoffenheim.
“Nothing has changed in the last few days, not on the one side, not on the other side,” said Klopp.
“He is not available for us in the moment, that’s the main issue if you want. He cannot play for Liverpool in this moment and, how everybody can imagine, that’s quite a blow for us.
“We’ve known for a few days about it so we can prepare this game without him, like we have to prepare the game without Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge.”
