Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool Betting Tips

The reigning champion of the Champions League, Liverpool is trying to win the trophy once again. The first obstacle on the road to the title is Atletico Madrid. Although Atleti have always been a very tough nut to crack, this time, it seems the Reds aren’t going to have too big problems to knock them out. The reason? Liverpool looks unstoppable.

This team has been in a fabulous form this entire season. They have practically already won the Premier League title, meaning that they can focus on other competitions, the most important of which is the Champions League.

Liverpool has been tremendous in all areas of the game, from back to front. Their defense looks unbreakable and Atleti will need a lot of luck to find the net against them. It’s not just because the Reds have been amazing at the back, but also because Atleti are struggling with scoring this season. In fact, Atletico Madrid is one of the worst teams in La Liga when it comes to scoring.

Still, they are flying reasonably high in the Spanish league. The reason for that is that they have been pretty good at the back. The question is can they play well at the back against such an impressive attack as Liverpool’s.

Liverpool is a team that’s scored in every single match they’ve played since September when Napoli beat them 2:0 in the group stage of the Champions League. Atletico are hoping that the same scenario can play out in their doubleheader with Liverpool.

With the help of their fans at Wanda Metropolitano, Atleti might be able to get a good result if by ‘good’ you mean a draw or a dignified defeat. Beating Liverpool does not seem like something they can do.
