Liverpool can qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League when they face Diego Simeone’s Atlético Madrid on Wednesday night.
The Reds have taken a maximum of nine points from three matches so far this campaign and a victory would take them eight points ahead f the Spaniards, an insurmountable gap with two matchdays remaining.
The victory in the reverse fixture in Madrid two weeks ago was hard-fought, ultimately secured by a Mohamed Salah penalty after Atlético had levelled the scores having gone two goals down early in the first-half.
Jürgen Klopp’s men are unbeaten in 24 matches in all competitions, a run which dates back to early April.
Here’s everything you need to know about Wednesday’s match:
When is it?
The match will kick-off at 7.45pm in the UK, with the fixture taking place at the Anfield.
How can I watch it?
Liverpool vs Atlético Madrid will be shown live on BT Sport 2 in the UK, with coverage beginning at 7pm.
Naby Keita will miss out for Liverpool after limping off against Brighton with a hamstring injury, meaning he joins fellow injured midfielders Fabinho, James Milner and Thiago Alcantara on the treatment table. Harvey Elliott also remains absent with a long-term ankle problem.
Diego Simeone has an almost fully fit squad to select his line-up from, with only Thomas Lemar and Marcos Llorente doubts as they recover from recent muscle injuries. Antoine Griezmann is banned after his red card in the previous fixture.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Jones, Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Mané.
Atlético: Oblak; Gimenez, Felipe, Hermoso; Trippier, Herrera, Koke, Carrasco; Correa, Felix; Suárez.
The home side’s strong performances in this competition so far this season stand them in good stead, but the lack options in midfield and off the bench could hamper them. 1-1 draw.
