Liverpool will look to maintain their flawless start to the 2021-22 Champions League when they will travel to Atletico Madrid for their Group B match on Tuesday. On matchday two, Atletico Madrid snatched a last-gasp victory over AC Milan while Jurgen Klopp’s team thrashed Porto 5-1. Here is our expert guess on Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.
With Stefan Savic suspended and Jose Gimenez injured, Geoffrey Kondogbia might start at centre-back if Diego Simeone opts for a three-man defense.
Matheus Cunha is still out, but Marcos Llorente is back in the mix and expecting to play.
In the middle of the park, however, Thomas Lemar and Rodrigo De Paul are expected to flank Koke.
Fabinho and Alisson traveled straight to Madrid and should have an immediate impact.
With Thiago and Harvey Elliott out, Naby Keita and James Milner are fighting for a starting spot in the middle. On the other hand, Curtis Jones is a significant question
Jurgen Klopp may stick with Roberto Firmino in attack after his outstanding performance against Watford.
Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool Prediction
The hosts have got more time to prepare for this one because Atletico Madrid’s match against Granada was postponed on Saturday. Last time out in the competition, the La Liga side came back to defeat AC Milan late on.
With a 5-0 victory over Watford on Saturday, Liverpool’s perfect start to the season was maintained. In the Champions League, scoring eight goals in two games the Reds have been brilliant and will be seeking to keep their perfect record in the competition intact.
While Atletico has had extra rest in preparation for Liverpool’s visit on Tuesday, the away side’s offense was on fire at Vicarage Road on Saturday, and the Reds might win this one.
Under 2.5 goals have been scored in each of Atletico’s last five encounters against Liverpool in all competitions.
Atletico Madrid possible starting lineup:
Oblak; Felipe, Kondogbia, Hermoso; Trippier, De Paul, Koke, Lemar, Carrasco; Suarez, Griezmann
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane
