Atletico Madrid - Liverpool: Champions League Return
18/02/2020, 20.00 GMT
In the 1/8 finals of the Champions League will take part teams that took first and second places in the group
stage. Representatives of one country and one quartet cannot play with each other at this stage. The
winners of the groups will meet with the teams that took second places, as well as hold their first games
How to play without attack? For seven matches, such a rebus has been trying to guess Diego Simeone, while
Atletico has managed to get only one victory during this time, and even then over the newcomer of the La
Liga season - Granada (1: 0), but three shots on target 90 minutes for the team from Primera, claiming a
place in the European competition, is completely frivolous.
The “Los Rojiblancos” situation in the Cup of the country is also difficult, or rather shameful, because it’s
impossible to name the defeat in the 1/16 final of the team from Segunda B “Leonesa” (1: 2 additional
time). Before today's match, Atletico gained 40 points and practically lost their chances of fighting for the
first two places in La Liga, and with such a game they will soon leave the European Cup zone.
To date, Joao Felix, Trippier, Poveda and Costa are in the “red-white” infirmary, but the probability of
entering the Herrera field, which has muscle injury, is in question.

The current Champions League winner confidently went through the group stage of the tournament, where
he became the first team of Group E, but allowed himself to relax and was defeated, having conceded eight
goals, however, it did not prevent to achieve the desired result.
Liverpool have lost only three matches this season. The first in the debut game of the season, and the last in
the game against Aston Villa (0: 5), but such a drain of the English League Cup is due to the fact that the
main squad played at the FIFA Club World Cup.
In the English Premier League championship, the “Reds” are preparing to celebrate the victory, to which
there is very little left. The “Merseysides” have a single defeat and 25 victories, with 15 goals conceded for
26 rounds .
Of the losses before today's match, it is worth noting injuries at Nathaniel Clyne , Yasser Larouci and
To date, the game “Atletico” is of concern to fans of the team, and the classic victories of Madrid with a
minimal margin are a thing of the past. In today's match in the capital of Spain, we will see the Liverpool
attack in full force, which is unlikely to be able to keep the hosts with such a game.
We assume that we will see goals today and offer to bet in favor of the guests.
Our prediction is that Liverpool win
