The Reds got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth last time out. Klopp’s side haven’t been at their fluent best lately though. Three of their last five matches in all competitions have ended defeat. They’ll certainly need to find another gear to progress to the quarter-finals.
Missing players Liverpool: Jordan Henderson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne and Alisson are injured.
Missing players Atletico Madrid: Dario Poveda is injured. Thomas Lemar is under question.
The bookies don’t expect a goal-fest at Anfield. Both teams to score is one of the most popular bet. Given Atleti will likely set up to defend their narrow advantage, that price makes sense but there could be value in taking the odds-against quotes on BTTS.
- Liverpool have progressed each of the last 2 times in which they’ve lost away from home in the first leg in this competition.
