Spartak Moscow are heading to Anfield looking to end Liverpool's Champions League return in the group stages - and club doctor Victoria Gameeva has a trick up her sleeve to help the players silence the Kop.

She has banned Spartak's team from having sex in the days leading up to the match against Jurgen Klopp's side.

'From a medical point of view sex stimulates the ability to work only in women,' she is quoted as saying in an interview with Russian TV.
