Liverpool made short work of Sparta Prague to reach the last eight stage of the Europa League, with the Reds claiming a 5-1 victory in Czech Republic before a 6-1 triumph against the same team at Anfield. Things might not be as straightforward when it comes to the last eight encounter against Atalanta, with the Italian side having overcome Sporting CP in the last round.

The first leg takes place at Anfield where Liverpool will look to make home advantage count. It’s no surprise to see them trading as warm favourites, with the Reds trading as the 1/3 favourites to get the job done. The bookies think it’s marginally likely that both teams will score and there is also an anticipation of plenty of goals being scored.

Perhaps the best bet could be Liverpool to win and both teams to score, considering that this outcome happened in both games against Sparta Prague. We should expect Klopp to field his strongest possible 11 and it’s possible that we might see Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold return from injury here.

Mohamed Salah is now back up to full speed and there could be some cutting edge provided by Darwin Nunez, although Atalanta proved that they were up to the task when getting the better of Sporting and the team sit in sixth place in the Serie A table, with twenty goals being scored on the road this term.
