Atlanta vs Liverpool, UEFA Champions League 2020-21, Match Prediction

Atlanta BC will host Premier League champion, Liverpool, at the Gewiss Stadium in UEFA Champions League 2020-21 Group D fixture. The two European giants go head to head on Tuesday for the first time ever. 

Match Timings: Nov 04, 1:30 AM 

Team Preview 

Six-times winner Liverpool and Atalanta occupy the top two spots in Champions League Group D. To crack the knock out rounds, both sides would try to take three points from there. It’s a second appearance for Atalanta BC in the Champions League, and they face the most difficult task at home. 

How would they break Liverpool’s defense, and would Gasperini stop the most promising defense of Liverpool? The questions will be asked to Atalanta on Tuesday night. In previous Champions League outing against Ajax, Zapata netted a brace in the second half to avoid a defeat. They are fresh off a 2-1 victory over Crotone in the domestic season. They stand 4th in Serie A 2020-21, having picked 12 points from 6 matches. La Dea has scored more in Serie A so far this season with 17 goals, and they have lost just one of their previous 17 home games in European competitions. 

The numbers can worry Liverpool, knowing that the Reds have conceded 15 goals in the Premier League this season. Jurgen Klopp's side kept the clean sheets in wins over Ajax and FC Midtjylland to top Group D. They recently edged past West Ham with a 2-1 triumph. One more stat can surprise the Reds as Kloop has lost all five of his last Champions League matches in Itlay, and three defeats were recorded with Liverpool. 

Klopp's side took the rhythm after a horrible defeat to Aston Villa as they are now placed at the top spot with 16 points from 7 matches. Aston Villa and Leicester City dropped points to deliver a top spot for Liverpool. Ahed of the big clash against Man City on Sunday, Kloop’s men would tight their form with an away win over Atalanta on Tuesday.
