Match of the Day Live: Liverpool in Europe


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Liverpool v Rapid Bucharest
Live coverage of Liverpool's Uefa Cup first-round, second-leg tie against Romania's Rapid Bucharest at Anfield (kickoff 8.05pm).
After missing out on European football last season,
Liverpool will be keen to have a long run in the competition they have won twice before. Their last Uefa Cup campaign was two seasons ago when they were knocked out by Spain's Celta Vigo in the third round.
Manager Gerard Houllier will be looking to players of the quality of Michael Owen , Steven Gerrard , Dietmar Hamann and Markus Babbel for an improved showing this time round. Owen confirmed his liking for the international stage with a late equaliser for England against World and European champions France in Paris earlier in the month, and followed that up with a first half hat-trick against Aston Villa in the Premiership four days later.
Liverpool will be expected to finish off their opponents, but Rapid Bucharest have the potential to cause upset.
They earned their place in this season's competition with a 3-1 aggregate win over Armenians Mika Ashtarak in the qualifying round. Introduced by Gary Linekerwith Alan
Hansen and Mark Lawrenson. Commentary by John Motson and Trevor Brooking. See Choice.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
