Liverpool will visit Madrid to face Atletico at Wanda Metropolitano in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.
Atletico Madrid is always a difficult team to beat in knock out stages. Known for their defensive stability, Simeone's team was in the final of the competition in 2014 and 2016, but their recent form hasn´t been good. Los Colchoneros have won just 1 of their last 7 matches and will face arguably the best team in Europe at the moment. Liverpool is cruising in the Premier League, with an unbelievable record of 25 wins in 26 matches and Klopp's team can pretty much focus on renewing their European title because domestically, things seem already decided. The Reds have won 13 of their last 14 matches across all competitions and secured 5 wins in their last 7 UCL away games, which are impressive numbers ahead of tomorrow's match.
Atletico scored in every Champions League match played at Wanda Metropolitano, getting 2 wins and one draw against Juventus. Liverpool has 2 wins in 3 away matches in this year's UCL, having lost at Stadio San Paolo against Napoli.
Simeone will not have Portuguese prodigy Joao Felix available, as well as Kieran Trippier, with Diego Costa and Hector Herrera remaining doubtful.
Klopp called all the 21 men available, as Shaqiri and Clyne remain sidelined.
Liverpool has been able to defeat almost everyone that appears in front of them, but Klopp's men already had a bad experience in an away match in this year's Champions League. We predict an even match this Tuesday, with Liverpool getting the edge.
