In another marquee fixture of matchday four, Liverpool will play host to Atletico Madrid at Anfield for Thursday’s UEFA Champions League 2021-22 Group B encounter. The Reds are yet to lose a game across all competitions and they will aim to complete a memorable double over the La Liga champions in this match. They made to work hard ahead of beating Atletico Madrid 3-2 at the Wanda Metropolitano last month, before Jurgen Klopp’s men were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw by Brighton & Hove Albion at the weekend. They will be keen to bounce back in this crucial match.
Meanwhile, the visitors have not exactly dazzled in the UCL 2021-22 season so far. A goalless stalemate against Porto, followed by a narrow 2-1 win over AC Milan and a dampening 3-2 defeat to Liverpool has given them a five point deficit in the Group B standings. The Reds top the group with nine to their name. However, the Los Colchoneros eased past Real Betis by a 3-0 margin in their previous La Liga game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
The game between Liverpool and Atletico Madrid will commence at 01:30 am (IST).
