Atalanta vs. Liverpool Head to Head

The two teams have never faced each other in a competitive fixture. 

Atalanta team news

Goalkeeper Marco Carnesecchi and center-back Mattia Caldara are both sidelined with injuries, therefore Atalanta boss will be unable to call upon their services and look for their replacement.

German left-back Robin Gosens and Netherlands international Marten de Roon are also in doubt of their availability.

Alejandro Gomez and Luis Muriel were both on the bench at half-time at the weekend but maybe available to play here. Pierluigi Gollini was back among the substitutes at the weekend but Marco Sportiello is expected to keep the position for the time being

Liverpool team news 

Meanwhile, Liverpool has few injury concerns, despite them playing without key center-back Virgil van Dijk as well as Brazil international Fabinho. In the midweek clash, Jurgen Klopp is expected to have a large squad at his disposal.

Rhys Williams looks set to start alongside Joe Gomez on Tuesday night, while Nat Phillips ineligible and Joel Matip major doubts,

Xherdan Shaqiri and Diogo Jota have made big impacts for Liverpool in recent games and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see both starts for the clash.

Duvan Zapata is expected to lead the Atalanta attack having only been used as a half-time sub at the weekend. The Colombian has had hand in six goals in five Champions League starts for the Black and Blues outfit – including scoring twice against Ajax last week.

Atalanta vs. Liverpool Prediction

Atalanta has become well-known and the most entertaining teams across Europe in Serie A. Gian Piero Gasperini’s side reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season and will be keen to replicate that run this time around.

Liverpool, on the other hand, is facing some defense issues. The injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho have left them with limited options at center-back. Jurgen Klopp will hope that youngsters Nathaniel Phillips and Joe Gomez are capable of forming a reliable partnership in the heart of the defense.

A close match is expected, and Atalanta will surely test Liverpool’s shaky defense. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side should be capable of outscoring them on their own soil.
