«Liverpool» — «Atletico Madrid» prediction by Daniel Aladeniyi. UEFA Champions League
Defending champions Liverpool have another 90 mins to turn around the first leg result. Liverpool have lost 3 games in their last five matches, a stats which is their worst for a long while, although they come into this match high on confidence after they defeated Bournemouth 2-1 at the weekend.
Liverpool saw their 44 games unbeaten run in the Premier league spoiled by Watford, Liverpool defence have been drinking in goals in recent games, even in the champions league this season they have conceded 9 goals in 7 matches.
Atletico Madrid are coming this fixture as the favourite to qualify according to the bookies, having a goal advantage, but Atletico have shown in recent years that they can have such advantage and still fail to go through, the most recent one was against Juventus last season.
Someone men have score 9 goals in 7 matches averaging barely a goal per game in the UCL.
Liverpool will have the luxury of their home fans (Anfield roar?) they will not only win this game, they will qualify for the next round.
