Liverpool are beginning to develop impressive momentum and have now collected 16 points from their last six league games.
Liverpool will be making their first appearance in the Champions League proper since 2014-15, when they were eliminated in the group stage.
Having seen top-four rivals Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal all drop points on Sunday, Liverpool capitalised thanks to Can's jaw-dropping effort in first-half injury time.
Emre Can cancelled out Marko Devic's well-taken opener for Rubin Kazan to rescue Liverpool F.C. in their Europa League clash.
Having made his Bundesliga debut in April, Emre Can spent most of last season playing in Bayern's reserves, so is relishing the prospect of playing Champions League football.
