Liverpool welcome Atletico Madrid to Anfield on Wednesday on matchday four of the Champions League with Jurgen Klopp’s side looking for another win against the Liga champions.
Two weeks ago, these sides played out a thrilling match in the Spanish capital which ended in a 3-2 victory for the six-time European champions and another exciting encounter could be on the cards on Merseyside.

Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid preview
Expectations are high that these two teams can serve up another entertaining encounter and their respective scoring records are encouraging.
Liverpool have netted in every competitive game they have played over the last 10 months, while Atletico have scored at least twice in each of their last six matches.
Neither side have been as defensively solid as their managers would have liked, with Liverpool keeping just two clean sheets in six home games this term in all competitions, and Atletico conceding in every away game they have contested.
Those statistics mean another open match looks on the cards with goals at both ends looking likely.
