The winner will qualify for the Champions League.
“We're playing against one of the super powers in world football, with a chance of going above them to make it into the Champions League," Rodgers said.
“Whichever (European) competition we're in, we have to improve the quality and mentality of the squad next year."
Rodgers says star striker Jamie Vardy will be up for the game.
He added: “Jamie has been outstanding in my time and before that as well.
"These are the occasions he really comes to the fore in. This sort of game is right up his street."
