Jurgen Klopp’s side have been perfect in the Champions League so far this season, as far as results are concerned at least. The Reds are five points clear of Atletico Madrid and Porto after just three games and could be one of the first teams to seal their place in the last-16 with a win on Wednesday. Victory would be enough for Liverpool as Atletico Madrid would no longer be able to overtake them, while Porto dropping points would also secure top spot for the Reds with two games to spare. Despite winning all three of their matches, Liverpool haven’t made it easy, with 3-2 victories over Atletico Madrid and AC Milan while they lost a 2-0 lead against Brighton at the weekend to draw.
Atletico Madrid will have been cursing themselves for losing to Liverpool last time out as they worked hard to come from two goals down before Antoine Griezmann’s red card allowed their opponents to retake control. That was the start of a three-game winless run for Atletico Madrid, with Diego Simeone’s side following up the defeat to Liverpool with 2-2 draws against Real Sociedad and Levante, having to come from 2-0 down against the former and conceding a late equaliser vs the latter. However, they were comfortable in victory at the weekend, beating Real Betis 3-0 at home to move up to fourth, just three points behind leaders Real Sociedad.
