Liverpool will celebrate their return to the UEFA Champions League with a post-season friendly against A-League champions Sydney FC on Wednesday night.

Liverpool ended the English Premier League season on Sunday in triumphant style as they secured fourth spot and a return to the UEFA Champions League. 

Jurgen Klopp's side now get to continue those celebrations with a post-season friendly against A-League champions Sydney FC in front of a sell-out crowd of around 72,000 at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday.

It will be a strong Liverpool side which lines up, just as was the case on their last trip Down Under when they took on Melbourne Victory in a friendly in front of a jam-packed MCG back in 2013. 

Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana are among the squad to have travelled to Sydney, while legends Steven Gerrard, Steve McManaman and Jamie Carragher are expected to feature for cameo appearances.

Sydney FC will provide a test for the Reds having ended a dominant season - in which they lost just once all campaign - as A-League champions.

Graham Arnold's side have enjoyed two weeks off since defeating Melbourne Victory in the Grand Final and will be keep to test themselves against some of the Premier League's biggest names.

The Sky Blues will be without star man Milos Ninkovic as well as Filip Holoska and Bernie Ibini, who have both left the club since the end of the season.

Will it be competitive? Will Sydney go one better than when beaten by Chelsea and Tottenham in friendlies? Or will Liverpool's class shine through?
