    Athletico Madrid v Liverpool

    Venue - Wanda Metropolitana Stadium

    Tuesday 19 / 10 / 21

    KO 20 : 00


    So after the thrashing of Watford we now face our first real test in this seasons CL against a team which we have a poor record against having not won in any of our 4 CL matches having lost 2 drawn 2 .

    The last meeting was grim but for the masochists out there here are some “highlights” .




    I really dislike playing AM due their normal tactics which are both effective against us and often make for "bitty" games however win this and we will have one foot in the KO stages .

    Both Fab and Allison should be available having completed their required quarantine and both first choice FB’s had a bit of a rest today plus quite a few of the fringe players have had game time and with only Thiago doubtful we are pretty much as strong as could be hoped.

    PL 5-3-0

    CL 2-0-0

    LC 1-0-0

    Luis Suarez would be up for this game. Do you know his phone number?. Would like to give him a call after the game. He started it by phoning Ronald Koeman after Athletico beats Barcelona. Just want to return the compliment.

    All we need do here is not lose.

    Take a point home and that's almost the group over.

    Porto look weak as hell and have to play at anfield and ac milan while nice ballers were blown away by the game we can deliver if we need to.

    Hopefully we can pit this group to bed early, despite how hard it looked. To do it not letting atletico have a sniff is needed.

    A draw away would be a good start.

    Yup. Think this game is do not lose. A win would be fab but a draw away from home is more than good enough

    It's definitely a challenge; can you stay awake for the full ninety?

    I'm not looking forward to it. If Atleti have their way it'll be a pretty boring game

    Looks on paper a tricky tie but on current form we should and will beat them.

    Salah is on current form the best player on the planet and I can see him scoring a brace like said above. Our defence especially with Matip playing the best I’ve seen him play for us look excellent.

    0-2 to us.

    away from home? are you mad? Salah one goal at best.

    have you lot not got this yet? away from home he's not even sure to score. braces are rare and hat tricks are as rare as hen's teeth

    I want us to win but a draw is not going to be a bad result.

    Need to go all out on Tuesday to get a win and put the group to bed. We can always rest players on Sunday. :emoticon-0112-wonde

    Indeed, a draw would be fine and keep us in control of the group. This is our toughest group game without doubt.
