Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid Match Preview

Liverpool slipped up at home to Brighton on Saturday in the Premier League when they were held to a 2-2 draw by the plucky Seagulls, though things have been running far smoother for the Reds on the continent.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are among the favorites to lift the Champions League this season, and their performances in Group B so far have certainly been the displays of a team that is capable of going all the way.

Liverpool sit proudly at the top of the section thanks to a perfect three wins from three games and their haul of 11 goals highlights the ferocity of their net-shredding power.

The Reds beat Atletico in a five-goal thriller in Spain last month on an evening where all the game’s defining decisions seemed to go their way, however, with the backing of the Anfield crowd on Wednesday, Liverpool won’t need any favors from the officials this time.

Atletico’s reverse to Liverpool on October 19 was only their second defeat in 14 assignments in all competitions this term, though they have been uncharacteristically loose at the back in recent weeks.

The Colchoneros have shipped seven goals in their last four outings, much to the ire of tough taskmaster Diego Simeone. If Atletico are similarly open in defence on Merseyside this week, Liverpool have the tools and the confidence to punish them.

Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid Picks

Liverpool to Win -155 (DraftKings)

Liverpool have won nine of their last 12 Champions League fixtures at home and they generally save some of their best work for European nights under the lights at Anfield.

In contrast, Atletico’s record on the road in the competition leaves a lot to be desired and their haul of just four victories from their last 13 Champions League away fixtures makes for grim reading.

With the livewire Mohamed Salah in the form of his life at present and a 15-match unbeaten run providing plenty of momentum, Liverpool can take advantage of Atletico’s notorious travel sickness and their recent defensive woes to claim three points at their expense on Wednesday.

Both teams to score -130 (DraftKings)

Last month in Spain, Liverpool and Altetico’s forwards enjoyed a productive evening in a contest where neither defense covered themselves in glory.

Five goals were notched in an open contest in Madrid and we’re tipping the net to ripple at both ends again when Liverpool and Atletico face off again in Wednesday’s rematch.

Antoine Griezmann is out suspended; however, former Liverpool star Luis Suarez should slot in for the Frenchman and the Uruguayan will be keen to make an impact having sat on the bench for 80 minutes in the team’s first meeting.

With attacking talent to burn in both camps and Liverpool’s record of just one clean sheet in their last five home tests a factor, bettors are advised to pursue the BTTS market at -130 with Draftkings.
