Why Bet On Atletico
Los Colchoneros come into this affair off a 2-2 draw against Valencia in their La Liga thriller on Friday. Marcos Llorente put Atletico up 1-0 after 15 minutes while Gabriel Paulista scored the equalizer five minutes before the break.
“We understand in the world of football when you’re on a bad run, doubts appear, questions appear, when you win three or four in a row it all disappears,” said Llorente.
In six Champions League matches, Atletico has gone 3-1-2 as they sit in second place behind Juventus in Group D.
Why Bet On Liverpool
The Reds have won four straight matches in the English Premier League and English FA Cup, including a narrow 1-0 win over Norwich on Saturday. Sadio Mane scored late to lift Liverpool to victory.
“It was a difficult game for different reasons,” manager Jurgen Klopp said. “The wind, the organization of the opponent and the way we played in the first half made it tricky for us. “The good thing is when you don’t play too well in the first half it’s easy to improve. Sadio was fresh and made the difference.”
Liverpool dominated possession and blasted a whopping 17 shots in the win while going 4-1-1 in six Champions League matches this year. The Reds are now an insane 25 points up on defending Premier League champions Manchester City. Liverpool is a record-setting 25-1-0 in the Premier League this season.

Atletico might be playing at home in this match, but the fact of the matter is that Liverpool has been pretty much unbeatable this year, in both, the Premier and Champions Leagues. The Reds have recorded a stupendous 10 clean sheets in their previous 11 Premier League fixtures and they have the look of a team that won’t be beaten any time soon.
