Liverpool trained in Germany on Monday night ahead of their Champions League play-off, first-leg clash with Hoffenheim - and our photographers were at the Rhein-Neckar-Stadium to capture the session.

A 22-man squad touched down in Frankfurt earlier this afternoon after departing John Lennon Airport just after midday.

The Reds will take on the Bundesliga club on Tuesday night in the first leg of the qualifier, aiming to take a significant step towards the group stage of Europe's premier club competition.
