Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid: Betting preview with odds and prediction
Liverpool will look to move one step closer to the next phase of the Champions League when they take on Atletico Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday night.
The Reds were frustrated in the Premier League at the weekend after letting slip a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Brighton & Hove Albion which has left them trailing leaders Chelsea by three points.
However, its European matters at hand on Wednesday and Liverpool are well placed to progress to the knockout stages of the competition having won all three of their games so far.
A 3-2 victory over Atletico Madrid in Spain last month moved Liverpool five points clear at the top of Group B so they know victory tomorrow would book their place in the next phase with two games to spare.
That said, a win for Diego Simeone’s men coupled with a Porto win over AC Milan would blow the group wide open so Liverpool need to tread carefully at Anfield tomorrow evening.

Liverpool are currently the 4/6 favourites to win this game while Atletico can be backed at 4/1 to claim all three points at Anfield. Some neutrals may be tempted to back the draw at 3/1 but most punters will be tipping the Reds for victory.
It should be another exciting game at Anfield and a repeat 3-2 win for Liverpool is available at 17/1. However, we think it might be more cagey this time around with Liverpool edging it 2-1 – which can be backed at odds of 13/2.
Liverpool have been handed a boost with the news that Fabinho is back in contention after recovering from a knee injury that’s kept him out in recent weeks. The Brazilian is expected to be given an immediate recall.
Thiago Alcantara is also back in contention after overcoming a calf issue and he could come in for Naby Keita – who’s been ruled out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury that forced him off at the weekend.
James Milner is still out for Liverpool with a thigh problem while Harvey Elliott is also a long-term absentee.
Atletico Madrid will be without Antoinne Greizmann and Stefan Savic due to suspension while Llorente and Thomas Lemar are injury doubts for the Spaniards.
Atletico Madrid are a dangerous side who can give anyone a game on their day but Liverpool are a formidable outfit at Anfield – especially on European nights – so we think they’ll edge it. Liverpool 2-1 Atletico
