UEFA CL: Liverpool vs Atletico Match Preview And Prediction
March. 10, 2020
Liverpool will be counting on another famous Anfield night in Europe as they seek to reach the Champions League quarter-finals at Atletico Madrid’s expense.
Diego Simeone’s men hold a slender 1-0 advantage but are no doubt wary of elimination after seeing what happened to Barcelona on Merseyside last season.
The Reds, now within touching distance of lifting their 19th league title, go into this round-of-16 second-leg contest having won their last 11 home matches in all competitions on the bounce.

Mohamed Salah cut a dejected figure in Liverpool’s humbling loss at Atletico Madrid several weeks ago. He can again expect Simeone’s boys to ruffle his feathers but with home advantage comes that famous Anfield roar.
Liverpool have been unstoppable at home and will fancy their chances of adding Atletico Madrid to their list of victims. The visitors know they’ll need to score and the Reds haven’t kept a Champions League clean sheet at Anfield but we feel their incredible front-three will power them into the last eight.
