That will be the case if they beat LASK again and nearest rivals Toulouse fail to see off Belgian side Union SG at home on the same night, while just a point will be enough for Liverpool to seal a top-two finish. They could lose and still progress if Toulouse are held to a draw.
A morale-boosting late draw at title rivals Manchester City on Saturday will have offered another confidence boost for the in-form hosts, though they have now seen both Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota added to the injury list.

Liverpool vs LASK prediction
Liverpool will have their eyes firmly fixed on top spot in Group E, meaning they will qualify directly for the last-16 and not have to worry about a knockout play-off fixture in the New Year.
The surprise defeat in France will have wounded Klopp's men, who will be eager to restate their credentials as arguably the best team in this competition against opponents who sit bottom of the group with only one win to their name so far.
It is very hard to look past a comfortable Liverpool victory back at fortress Anfield, where the crowd have been urged to play their part.
Liverpool to win, 3-0.
