Liam Fisher, talkSPORT programme director, said: “Liverpool has an enormous heritage in European competitions and it’s fantastic to bring the club’s return to the Champions League to listeners. Balotelli v Bale is just one of the several thrilling encounters we’ve got to look forward to and with Danny Murphy behind the microphone we’ll have expert analysis of every moment.”

Liverpool’s chief media officer Matthew Baxter added: “Teaming up with a global sports radio station like talkSPORT means that our fans get to follow all of our upcoming Champions League games in real time no matter where in the world they live.”
