The uncompromising match between Liverpool and Atalanta

Liverpool will welcome Atalanta at home in the match in the second leg of the Champions League group stage, which will take place at 3:00 p.m. on November 26.

Liverpool will welcome Atalanta at Anfield’s home ground in the match in the second leg of the Champions League group stage. A victory will help The Kop go straight to the next round and the goal of coach Jurgen Klopp will be to win all 3 points.

Rarely is a team that has both achieved good results in the domestic arena and flourished in the Champions League like Liverpool. Coach Jurgen Klopp’s army is in very impressive form with a series of 8 consecutive unbeaten games despite having suffered great losses in terms of force with injuries from pillars like Van Dijk, Gomez, or Arnold.

Liverpool are in good form despite the injuries of the important strikers

In the encounter in the first leg, Liverpool, despite not having the best team, easily defeated Atalanta 5-0 at home. This is also the 3rd consecutive clean sheet victory of The Kop in the Champions League this season.

A victory in the upcoming match will not only help coach Jurgen Klopp’s team win tickets to the next round but also help this team rush their Champions League record of 4 consecutive wins since March 2009.

On the other side of the front line, Atalanta’s performance at present is not impressive, Coach Gasperini’s army has only won 1 victory in the last 5 matches.

Atalanta are showing a declining form

La Dea is currently ranked 3rd in Group D with 4 points after the first 3 matches and this team will face the risk of being eliminated from the group stage if it cannot win a good result against the home team.

The upcoming match promises to be extremely dramatic and attractive when both teams are in desperate need of a victory. Although playing at home, however, with a patchy squad, Liverpool will have to be wary of Atalanta because this team has been cornered and will be strong in the next match.

Liverpool will play in the Champions League on Wednesday night against Atalanta before being forced to play against Brighton on Saturday in the Premier League’s noon (local time) match. The dense schedule has put The Kop’s forces in a difficult situation.

Klopp’s side lacked many key players due to injury and Liverpool suffered another loss on Sunday after Naby Keita was forced out in a 3-0 win over Leicester City. Klopp thinks the schedule is being manipulated by television stations.

Liverpool is suffering the defense crisis

Liverpool are more miserable with the crisis of forces in the defense caused by the injury, the latest victim is Joe Gomez.

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is concerned about his absence for the remainder of the season as well as next summer’s Euro final after suffering a serious knee injury during England’s training session.

According to the Daily Mail, Gomez was injured in his final training session with England ahead of tonight’s friendly match against Ireland and the news is like a blow for coach Jurgen Klopp.

Joe Gomez has just suffered an injury

The initial concerns were that even if Gomez fought to return this season, he would still be unlikely to make it to the European Championship. Be aware that the Liverpool midfielder missed the 2018 World Cup because of an injury.

With Gomez added, Liverpool plunged into a serious defensive crisis with Virgil van Dijk absent for the remainder of the season with a knee injury, Trent Alexander-Arnold sidelined for four weeks with calf strain and Fabinho – the person being put on fire as a center-back – is still not sure whether to return after having a thigh problem.

Gomez is undoubtedly a key part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans in the coming months due to Van Dijk’s injury following a dreadful clash with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

How many midfielders have Liverpool left after losing Van Dijk and Gomez?

Liverpool are in crisis at center-back after Joe Gomez followed Virgil van Dijk’s footsteps with a serious injury. Liverpool constantly suffered heavy losses in defense, the latest being Joe Gomez with serious knee damage, leading to the risk of leaving the game until the end of the season.

Gomez maintained good form during Van Dijk’s absence. But now he and Van Dijk, the defensive duo contributing to their first championship in 30 years, are in the treatment room.

Liverpool lost more Joe Gomez due to injury

And yet, the absentee list also included Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold, who had to take a month off game due to calf injury. Thus, Joel Matip is currently Liverpool’s only official midfielder. This forced coach Klopp to resort to young players such as Nat Phillips, Rhys Williams, Sepp van den Berg.

In the match against Midtjylland, Williams replaced the injured Fabinho. Then, it was Phillips to pair up with Gomez in a 2-1 win over West Ham. Entering the Champions League, Klopp placed Williams again in the center of defense.

Man City may use a $300 million transfer package to buy Messi

Besides a group of three players worth $ 182 million, Man City can pay an additional $ 118 million in cash for Barca in exchange for Lionel Messi’s service.

Why would Liverpool not join in the summer football transfer?

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have their own reasons to stay out of this summer’s transfer.

It will not be easy for neutral football fans to understand this, but Liverpool has a good reason not to need to spend any money in this year’s transfer. They are the defending champions of the Premier League, the defending champions of Europe, and the rest of the world, but does Liverpool really need additional forces?

Admittedly, there is always a part of Liverpool fans, even a small part, think that Jugen Klopp must bring in new signings. But before the media, the German strategist knew how to protect his cautious bosses. They are cautious of course for a reason. Remember that before Van Dijk, Salah or Mane, Liverpool also played with Andy Caroll, Rickie Lambert, or Christian Benteke.

Of course, no coach does not want to increase the strength of his team, especially the clubs with great ambitions. So was Jurgen Klopp, and Liverpool’s scouting system had noticed a few notable names. After the departure of Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, and possibly Xherdan Shaqiri, the port city team squad will be slightly thinned. But there is no guarantee that Klopp will spend money in this transfer window to buy more players, even if they are in a powerful position.

Does Liverpool really need to buy more strikers to replace Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovre?

In Liverpool, the financial stability and transfer budget are based largely on revenue from ticket sales. The Covid-19 pandemic caused the Champions League to be postponed, the audience to go to the pitch, the advertising contracts were reduced, and so Liverpool lost several million pounds per game.

At this point, we still don’t know how the 2020-2021 Champions League will take place and where it will be held. Therefore, the participating teams, including Liverpool, do not know which sources they will profit from. All previous financial reviews are now turned into predictions.

With recent successes, they have the right to be patient in the transfer market. Every rookie coming to Anfield will have to meet the conditions to not ruin what Liverpool has built since the team rebuilding plan began five years ago.

Of course, old people in an old system will face many risks from rivals. But the above reasons are enough to make Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool not join in the summer football transfer, and they are completely reasonable to do so.

5 champions of Europe’s top 5 leagues in the 2019/20 season

After Juventus was crowned in Serie A, the 5 champions of the top 5 football leagues in Europe of the 2019/20 season were revealed.

Although Serie A still has 2 more rounds to finish, 5 champions of the top league have revealed after July 26 ended. The first team to win the championship was PSG when Ligue 1 organizers decided to end the tournament in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

5 champions of Europe’s top 5 leagues in the 2019/20 season

If there is a kick to the last 11 rounds, the championship is hard to miss from Mbappe and his teammates. By the time the tournament was halted, PSG had won 68 points and 12 points more than the second-ranked team, Marseille, despite playing one match less. Therefore, the championship of the Paris team is also not controversial.

This is the 7th Ligue 1 championship in the last 8 seasons of PSG. The closest team standing on top of France and not PSG was Monaco in the 2016/17 season.

Of the remaining four tournaments, the Bundesliga is the restarting game after Covid-19, the earliest and also the earliest curtain. The championship belongs to Bayern Munich with 82 points after 34 rounds, up to 13 points ahead of the second team, and “Gray Lobster” with 100 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

An extremely convincing championship of the Alianz Arena team although they started the season not very smoothly. This is the 30th league title in the history of Bayern Munich and they have done this in the last 8 seasons.

However, their performance has not been as impressive as Juventus. The Turin team has ninth consecutive crown in Serie A, a feat that no team in the top 5 leagues in Europe can do. Sarri’s teachers and students should have ascended the throne from the previous round, but the loss to Udinese caused Ronaldo and his teammates to wait for another round.

The football transfer bombs that may explode this summer

Despite the impact of the disease, the European football transfer market is still going on.

Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata is playing for Atletico Madrid on loan from Chelsea. Former Real striker will be bought by Atletico for £ 48.5 million (55 million euros) on July 1, 2020. Morata is an unsuccessful signing of “The Blues”.

Timo Werner

Timo Werner could be the next big deal to explode, after the PSG deal bought Mauro Icardi for 50 million euros (plus 8 million euros in the side clause) recently.

European media simultaneously reported that Chelsea was about to be signed by Werner for 60 million euros, the fee to release the contract of the German striker. Werder negotiated with Chelsea after not yet receiving an official offer from Liverpool.

Jadon Sancho

The number one goal of MU in the transfer market at this time is Jadon Sancho star of Dortmund. The German team is said to shout the price of the English player up to 115 million euros. However, in the context of the disease, media predicted Sancho could dock at MU for 80-90 million euros.

Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho will continue to be pushed by Barca in the upcoming summer transfer window. The Brazilian has been sought after by many Premier League teams. In the context of the Covid-19 translation, which is causing financial difficulties for the clubs, it is very likely that Barca must accept to sell the player for 65 million euros.

Lautaro Martinez

The Milan team has claimed the player will only leave if the € 111 million contract release clause is triggered. Barca could add a few of his players to the deal, so as not to pay too much cash.
