The Belgium international has not featured for the club since the 3-2 defeat at Southampton on March 20 after sustaining a knee injury training with the international side.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp has included in him in his squad for the crucial two-legged semi-final, although with Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino ahead of him in the pecking order the best he can expect in Spain is a place on the bench.

With Divock Origi out for up to six weeks with ankle ligament damage Benteke’s return at least boosts Klopp’s options up front.
