Liverpool will host Atlético de Madrid in the second leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League. The Champions League champions enter the field with a one-goal disadvantage after Atlético won the first game (1-0) at home. In Anfield, the match is scheduled to start at 8 pm.
In five games against Atlético, Liverpool only managed to win one, having lost twice and drawn twice. For this game, Klopp's men know they will have to beat Simeone's squad if they want to keep alive the hope of defending the title won last year and moving on to the quarter-finals.
Liverpool is going through an atypical moment of the season. After the break of the English championship, the Reds seem to have lost some dynamic of victories, nothing that endangers the victory in the Premier League, which may even be closed next weekend. In the last five games Liverpool lost three and none have managed a clean sheet, something they will have to correct if they want to keep alive the aspirations to move forward in the competition.
Atletico Madrid arrives to this game after two consecutive draws and with only two wins in the last five games. The defense remains one of the strengths of the Madrid team and in Spain only Real have a better defensive record than the Colchoneros - something that can be an important factor in defending the advantage. Four of Atlético's last five games witnessed goals in both sides and three had more than 2.5 goals.
Liverpool: Jordan Henderson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne and Alisson are injured.
Atletico Madrid: Dario Poveda is injured. Thomas Lemar is under question.
