Football predictions and betting tips for Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid
Liverpool welcome Atletico Madrid in a rematch between the two teams in the Champions League 1/8 finals. The meeting will be held Wednesday night at Anfield Stadium.
The Liverpool European champion is leaning against a wall and must necessarily win his Atletico household in order to continue defending the trophy. The Reds lost 0-1 to their first match in Madrid, with Saul bringing on Diego Simeone’s early hit. Liverpool failed to organize their game at Wanda Metropolitano and lost the match.
After that defeat, The Reds had a lot of hesitant performances. They made their first loss to the English Championship after being defeated 3-0 by Watford on February 29th. Three days later, Liverpool lost their 2-2 visit to Chelsea in the FA Cup and lost to the 1/8 finals of the race. In their last match, Jurgen Klopp’s men won 2-1 on their own against Bournemouth. It was Liverpool’s 11th consecutive win over home crowds and fans will look forward to another success on Wednesday night.
Atletico Madrid stabilizes its performance in 2020. The guests are unbeaten in 6 consecutive games, their previous 2 matches having ended equally. On Saturday, Atletico split points with Sevilla after Wanda Metropolitano’s 2-2 draw. In their last away game, Diego Simeone alumni made it 1-1 against Espanyol.
On a foreign field in the Champions League this season, Atletico allowed 2 losses and won 2-0 against Loko Moscow. The losses were from Juventus 0-1 and Bayer Leverkusen 1:2. Atletico lost 4 of their previous 6 visits to the tournament, and this worried the Madrid fans.
Liverpool are a favorite in the upcoming match, but have to make one of their strongest fights lately if they want to beat Atletico Madrid. The hosts have conceded a goal in their three Anfield matches in the group stage and for that reason I will bet on the BTTS option in the upcoming match, which is a pretty good odds.
