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.
