Champions League: Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid preview, team news, prediction and tips
November 2


Liverpool will take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League matchday 4 at Anfield on Wednesday. The kick-off is at 22:00 CEST.


It's been all but a dream start to the 2021/22 season for Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp's side remain unbeaten in all competitions after 15 games. That run includes a 3-2 victory over Atletico in Madrid two weeks ago and respective wins 3-2 and 5-1 wins over Milan and Porto in the opening three Group B matchdays so the Reds will play hosts to the Rojiblancos sitting at the very top of their CL group standings. Liverpool, however, were held to a 2-2 draw by Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday so they'll be looking to return to winning ways in this one.

Diego Simeone's crop, meanwhile, have drawn Porto (0-0) while beating Milan (2-1) before last month's defeat at the hands of their forthcoming opponents to find themselves in second in the Group B table, level on points with the Dragons. In contrary to Liverpool, the Rojiblancos are coming into this encounter on the back of a 3-0 thrashing of Real Betis in La Liga on Sunday.

Team news

While Naby Keita, James Milner and Harvey Elliott will definitely take no part in Wednesday clash for the hosts due to injury, Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho are yet to be given the green light to feature for the same reason. Stefan Savic and Antoine Griezmann, meanwhile, won't help the visitors at Anfield through respective suspensions. Thomas Lemar and Marocs Llorente, for their part, will miss their side's trip to the UK due to respective injury woes.


It was Griezmann who gave Atleti hope for a comeback against Liverpool in the reverse fixture by cancelling opening goals from Salah and Keita at the Wanda Metropolitano but the Frenchman won't be there to help Simeone's men in Merseyside after his sending-off in the Spanish capital. It's hard to envisage the Rojiblancos putting an end to the Reds' 15-game unbeaten streak but Liverpool's ongoing midfield injury crisis have already seen them drawing Brighton over the weekend. Hence, let's say it would be no wonder to see plenty of goals from the La Liga and the Premier League giants at Anfield, as well as in their previous head-to-head meeting.
