It's a good time to be a Liverpool supporter. Fresh off a Champions League triumph in May, they have hardly missed a beat since the beginning of the season.
Eight wins in the Premier League sees them hold a massive eight point advantage over Manchester City in second place, giving them a huge boost in the title race. If anything, the club's supporters are probably a bit peeved that there is an international break this weekend.
This may ease that frustration. Liverpool have taken the rather bizarre decision to broadcast the upcoming friendly between Brazil and Senegal, which takes place in Singapore. The match will be shown on LFCTV and their website.
Of course, the game will feature a few Anfield favourites. Sadio Mane is the key man for Senegal, while both Roberto Firmino and Fabinho are in the Brazil squad.

Regardless of the involvement of their club players, the decision for Liverpool to broadcast this game is a bit of a strange one. Still, it will be interesting for Liverpool supporters to see how their players fare with their national teams.
They will mostly be hoping the players return injury-free with a few big games on the horizon. Jurgen Klopp's side will face Manchester United at Old Trafford immediately after the international break, with meetings with Tottenham and Manchester City to follow soon after.
