Liverpool have achieved three victories against each of their respective Champions League group opponents, with the Reds having come from behind to beat Milan, dished out a thrashing to Porto and then battled hard to secure a 3-2 triumph at the Wanda Metropolitano.

It means that Jurgen Klopp’s side are in the box seat to qualify for the last sixteen stage of the competition, with Liverpool wanting to tie things up as quickly as possible. However, they might be trading a touch short for this clash, especially with a number of players missing in the midfield department.

There was also an element of fortune about the way in which Liverpool won in Madrid, with Diego Simeone wanting to ensure that Atletico land a point so that they’re set up nicely to get over the line and claim second spot in the group stage.

Aside from the recent defeat against Liverpool, the Spanish side have only lost one clash all season and that was a 1-0 reverse at Alaves. We shouldn’t forget that this side are the champions of Spain, with Luis Suarez set to return to Anfield and perhaps the Uruguayan can help his team to secure a point.
