The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool PredictionThe UEFA Champions League is back again, this time around, with a bang! Liverpool will be making the trip to the Metropolitano Stadium to take on Spanish giants Atletico Madrid in a crunch Champions League round-of-16 fixture on Tuesday night.
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Round of 16
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)
As the Champions League official anthem continues to crescendo, these players will be lined up under the floodlights in Madrid, relishing every single moment of the famed chorale on the pitch. These players have worked their asses off to get to this stage and will want to give more to advance further.

With Juventus running riot in Group D of the competition, Atleti were left trailing by a whopping six points in second-place. Indeed, the Bianconeri were on cloud-9 throughout the group stages and Rojiblancos supporters can have absolutely no complaints about their journey.

As expected, defending champions Liverpool were the cream of the crop in Group E, finishing tops but were given a run for their money by Napoli in second place. The Reds triumphed by just a single point.

With Atletico Madrid hosting goal-friendly Liverpool on Tuesday night, expect a ballsy affair in Madrid, both sides breaching the other, at least once, before the end of the ninety minutes.

Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool Team News

Atletico Madrid played second fiddle to Juventus in Group D, subsequently earning them a round-of-16 clash with the defending champions themselves. The hosts stumbled twice, much to the dismay of their faithful, in the group stages, and finished six points behind the table-toppers.

It is also worth mentioning that the home team have not been coping well in their domestic campaign as of late. Miserably, Diego Simeone’s men have just one win to boast of from their past four La Liga clashes on the trot.

On the other hand, Liverpool topped their respective group with a slender one-point advantage over nearest foes Napoli. The visitors are on course to making history, back in the Premier League as well, and are currently sporting a stellar seventeen match winning streak in England, as we speak.

With Jurgen Klopp’s side hardly showing any signs of slowing down, Atletico Madrid surely have their work cut for them this week.
Despite the poor run of form overall, it needs saying that Atletico Madrid have been showing promise in their recent clashes at home. In fact, the hosts have not been at the losing end in any of their past four games here.

Furthermore, the Spanish outfit were unbeaten in each of their group stage clashes at this stadium.

Be that as it may, they are up against a Liverpool side that has been a force to reckon with, even on the road. Impressively, the guests have picked up the win in ten of their past twelve outings in all competitions.

To make matters worse for the hosts, Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has returned to full fitness. The Senegalese striker even went on to score a goal in their most recent clash back in the Premier-League.

Taking into the blistering run that Liverpool are on, Atletico Madrid are the outright underdogs to come away with the win. However, the visitors have not secured the bragging rights in their past two meetings with this foe on the road.
