Manager Rodgers is certainly excited ahead of the game and has stated that the occasion will be a special one.
Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: "I got a feel for the support the club has in Australia when we were here two years ago and played in Melbourne.
"It was an incredible night and I'm sure this will be the same. Pre-season is an important period. Ultimately, it's about developing the fitness but it's better to perform well and win. The players are looking very strong and the game will be another good test for us."
