Atletico Madrid, Liverpool Battle For Champions League Top Spot

Published

on

The top spot in the UEFA Champions League Group B will be up for grabs when Atletico Madrid welcome Liverpool to the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday.

Atletico Madrid have made a slightly slow start to their Champions League campaign, having been held to a draw by FC Porto in their opening fixture before leaving it late to beat AC Milan 2-1 last time out.

In La Liga, Los Rojiblancos have not been in full flow but remain among the top teams so far this term, although they did not play this past weekend after having their fixture postponed.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have been imperious in the Champions League to date, winning each of their two opening fixtures.

The Reds, in fact, remain the only unbeaten English team across all competitions and maintained such a start to 2021/22 this past weekend, cruising to a 5-0 win over Watford in the Premier League.

Atletico Madrid have happy memories of their last meetings with Liverpool, as they grabbed an aggregate 4-2 win in the Round of 16, back in the 2019/20 season.

Atletico Madrid
Probable Lineup (3-5-2): Oblak; Savic, Gimenez, Hermoso; Trippier, De Paul, Koke, Lemar, Carrasco; Griezmann, Suarez

Liverpool
Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane

UCL: Chelsea Will Be Difficult To Overcome In Milan, Says Kaka

Published

on

Real Madrid and AC Milan’s former midfielder, Kaka has hailed ‘very consistent’ Chelsea following their defeat of AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Brazilian, a former AC Milan player, admitted the Blues ‘deserved’ to beat the Italian side.

It was Chelsea’s first win in the Champions League under Potter, thanks to goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James.

The Italians will likely need to beat Graham Potter’s men in the reverse fixture next week to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.

“Chelsea deserved that result, said Kaka.

“I think they have a very consistent game they controlled the game the whole time. They didn’t create many opportunities but they took advantage of the opportunities they had.

“Most of them [chances] conceded by Milan and we were talking about the absence of the players and it’s important to keep the players that couldn’t play tonight but for Milan, it was a poor game.
