Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid Betting PreviewLiverpool have made a superb start to their Champions League campaign. The Reds have won all three group matches so far, having hammered FC Porto and recorded two 3-2 victories over Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano and AC Milan at Anfield Road. Jurgen Klopp's men are fresh of a 2-2 home draw against Brighton and currently trail Chelsea by three points in the Premier League table. That disappointing draw marked their 24th consecutive game without defeat in all competitions. Furthermore, the Reds have scored at least two goals in each of their last 12 outings.
Atletico appear to be in a battle with FC Porto for the second qualifying position. They are 2nd in table, level on 4 points with the Portuguese club having recorded a goalless draw with the Dragoes in the opening match and beat AC Milan 2-1 at S.Siro. Since losing 3-2 to Liverpool last month, Los Rojiblancos have played out a pair of 2-2 draws (home to Sociedad and away to Levante) and beaten Real Betis 3-0. Diego Simeone's men are now 4th in the La Liga standings, three points behind leaders Real Sociedad with one game in hand. Atletico have scored two or more goals in the last six games across all competitions but they are yet to keep an away clean sheet this season.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Jones, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Jota, Mane
Naby Keita has joined James Milner and Harvey Elliot in the injured list while Thiago Alcanta and Fabinho are major doubts. As a consequence, Curtis Jones and Axel Oxlade-Chamberlain will fanlk Jordan Henderson in the middle of the park. Up front, Diogo Jota should get the nod over Roberto Firmino for a place alongside Sadio Manè and Mohamed Salah.
Atletico Madrid (3-4-3): Oblak; Savic, Gimenez, Hermoso; Trippier, De Paul, Koke, Carrasco; Correa, Suarez, Felix
Antoine Griezmann serves his suspension for a straight red card against the Reds last time out. Thomas Lemar is also a doubt after sitting out the last two games with a thigh complaint. As a result Angel Correa and Joao Felix will flank Luis Suarez up front in a 3-4-3 starting system. The likes of Kieran Trippier and Yannick Carrasco will start as wing-backs, with Koke and Rodrigo De Paul anchoring the midfield since Geoffrey Kondogbia is not 100% fit and Marcos Llorente is sidelined. At the back, the likes of Mario Hermoso, Josè Jimenez and Stefan Savic will retain their berth.
Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips
Atletico Madrid looks to get revenge after a disappointing result in their last meeting against Liverpool while the Reds will aim to back to winning ways after a setback in the league last time out. It's hard to look past Jurgen Klopp's men so we back the Reds' wealth of quality attacking options to see them to victory. The Correct Score could be a 3-1 for the Merseysiders while Diogo Jota is our pick in the anytime goalscorer market.
