It’s just few days to the all important UEFA Champions League knockout phase clash between Atletico Madrid and Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano which host the first leg of the two legged tie.
Liverpool look more like to favourites to carry the day and yes indeed they are. It is not easy for a club to go over forty matches without a loss, isn’t that incredible?
However, there’s a twist behind Liverpool’s visit to the Wanda Metropolitano despite Liverpool’s awesome form across all competitions this season and the previous season.
Atletico Madrid have been able to preserve the Metropolitano as their own hunting ground. During the group stages, the team managed to make it a fortress in a bid to move to the next round.
Simeone, arguably one of the best football coach in the world could hold the reds goalless at the Wanda Metropolitano and move on to Anfield to get results. Yes he is capable of doing so, he’s an experienced coach.
Liverpool would love to get at least an away goal at the Metropolitan, then easily get what they want at Anfield.
Pushing aside Atletico Madrid, Liverpool need to work extra hard else it could turn out to be disastrous.
