Liverpool have a point to prove in their firecracker Champions League showdown against Atletico Madrid

It’s time for Round Two of the unstoppable force versus the immovable object as Liverpool host Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 at Anfield.


The Reds have proven themselves to be mere mortals following three defeats in four games recently, but bounced back with a confidence-boosting win over Bournemouth at the weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s men remain one of the world’s finest teams in 2019/20 – if not the finest – and their front three will be relishing the chance to make more history in the Champions League.

To progress, they will need to overturn a 1-0 first-leg defeat to Atletico as Diego Simeone’s gladiators dug deep and produced another defensive masterclass.

The Argentine boss whipped the Wanda Metropolitano crowd into a frenzy all evening as his men showcased their defensive capabilities, but will face a firestorm of an atmosphere at Anfield. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch the Liverpool v Atletico Madrid game on TV and online.

Who will win? predicts…

Neither side has been at the top of their game in recent weeks but expect this to be one of the most absorbing, energy-sapping, draining games of the season.

We know, Liverpool know, Klopp knows exactly what Atletico will do, how they will set up to frustrate the hosts, but as usual the question remains: can Atletico’s opponents do anything about it?

Jordan Henderson returns for the Reds in a massive boost for Klopp. His absence has been sorely felt and if he is up to full-speed, the pendulum could swing in Liverpool’s favour.

The first goal will be crucial in this one. It feels like a ‘first goal wins’ scenario, but with so much on the line, Liverpool are the team to back.


Prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Atletico Madrid
