Liverpool vs Atalanta
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 25 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
The Reds are six-time champions of this same competition, and they easily are the best team in the group. And expectedly they have raced to the top of the table with a 100% win record, and in the process have scored the most number of goals.
Impressively, they are yet to concede a goal in return, and they will give their 100% on the pitch this match-day, since a win would guarantee them a spot in the knockouts.
Moving on, the reverse fixture between these two resulted in a mammoth 0-5 win for Jurgen Klopp’s men, and that too on the road. Keep note that this encounter is taking place at Anfield – where the Reds are thought to be near impossible to beat.
Moreover, the 6-time European champions are also in terrifying form, whereas their counterparts are going through some struggles at the moment.
As such, expect Liverpool to post the victory this game week.
Liverpool vs Atalanta: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Klopp’s men recorded a 0-5 win on the road the last time these two met on the pitch.
- The Reds were unbeaten in seven of their former ten meetings against Italian opponents.
- The latest England trip for La Dea was back in October of 2019 – to take on Manchester City. And then, the Citizens registered a 5-1 victory.
Liverpool vs Atalanta: Prediction
The latest UCL game for Klopp’s men was against this same opponent, and then they recorded a 0-5 win away from home.
Going on, they are unbeaten in their last eight straight matches, and had also won six of their past seven fixtures. In fact, barring a 1-1 draw against Manchester City on the road, they would have been on a seven-game winning run.
And at home, they are on a four-fixture winning run, meanwhile scoring two or more goals in all these games.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a three-match winless run, and had also remained so in six of their former eight fixtures.
Moreover, Klopp’s men are at their favorite hunting ground – Anfield, while their opposite number does not have a great record in English soil.
In addition, La Dea are desperate for the win this Wednesday, since any other result would reduce their chances to make it into the knockouts considerably. And this desperation would be smartly utilized by the hosts, who have an in-form frontline.
Considering these observations, expect a winning performance from Liverpool, and at least two goals as well.
